The weather turned. It was overcast and cooler, and it seemed to encourage an indoor weekend. Saturday I organized a massive quantity of statements (which could really all just as well be thrown away, but K won’t.) In any case, they are all organized and filed now, and that’s a lot less clutter. Sunday I picked more apples, removed the branches that had broken under the weight of the apples, made applesauce and canned it.
Having done it once I now understand the process, and it will be a lot easier next time. I also bought an apple peeler, which made everything a lot easier, and a food mill, which made the applesauce better.
But I am exhausted today.
I also cut back all the vines that have been strangling the clothes line and put the line itself back on the pulley wheel.
And I’m plotting a huge living-room furniture move . . .
It was a really productive weekend.
And next weekend we’re going to Maine. I can’t wait.
