Tuesday mornings kill me; they are me at my worst.  The lack of sleep from the night before does not bring out anything remotely cheery.  I should really change the day that I attempt to write about the here and now.  But here goes:

Andrew got on the sub list for Whatcom Symphony Orchestra.  Woohoo!

We've been busy trying to preserve the fruit off of our (4?) apple trees and (1) pear tree.  We are eating and storing as many apples as we can, but due to lack of care, there were a lot of apples that weren't good eating apples.  They have cracks or blemishes, but underneath there is lots of good apple.  So we've made pear butter, applesauce, apple butter....we even added apple chunks to our coffee cake, delicious!  I really like the system we have developed to be processing efficiently, I've been meaning to post about it.  Sigh.  Someday.

We took Scout to Bellewood Acres on Saturday.  We got a lovely wagon ride tour of the apple orchard (we are envious of their beautiful trees!) and picked out a couple of sugar pie pumpkins for making pumpkin butter and pumpkin baby food. Even after the warning by this lovely lady, my camera battery died (I charged it right before we left, I swear!).  We were able to get 3 or 4 pictures, which was probably plenty considering that Scout isn't really doing anything but staring back at all of the people oohing and aahing over her.  Really, it was a gorgeous day and it was nice to get out, but it was a little too crowded and the lines were too long to get to enjoy all of the treats. 

I woke up Saturday with a cold.  Nothing terribly nasty, just the sniffles and a sore throat.  Still made me feel like crying because it was just not what I needed on a beautiful weekend.  I could be just a tad bit emotional.

Andrew and I met up with a friend for lunch on Sunday and took a nice walk around downtown.  No pictures, but the weather here has been perfect, classic fall.  Crisp and cold with beautiful sunshine.  We stopped by Time in Play to check it out, we will definitely be going back in a few months when Scout can enjoy it more.  I'll tell you more about it then, but feel free to check out the link!  What a fun place to have in town!

Both my parent's and Andrew's parents wedding anniversaries are this week...Happy Anniversary!  We are so lucky to have such good examples of happy healthy marriages in our lives.  We love you all and appreciate all of your support!  Do something fun for yourselves to celebrate!

Haha, I can't believe your battery died too! Hope you are feeling better.
