At first, I sat indoors and bewailed my lack of apple crisp. I didn't want to go to the grocery store to buy the apples I would need, because that would involve driving and parking and spending money, and other unpleasant activities of that sort. But then I remembered that I had a much easier access to apples...
Angel in the wilderness this summer.
Honestly, the apples were basically the worst apples ever. They were small and kind of wormy. But I cut around the worms and the bruises--telling myself that these pesticide-free, wild, fresh picked apples were a rare privilege. Besides, they were free, so what did I have to complain about?
I eventually had enough chopped up for apple crisp--and I have to tell you, it tasted amazing. Better than I expected. I ate 3/4 and generously shared the last 1/4 with Angel.
Also, a few days ago, I decided to try my hand at piecing a quilt made with little scraps of fabric from previous projects. It was an experiment. This quilt is for my dollhouse, made according to the 1 inch=1 foot scale, and it will go folded up and lying across the crib in the nursery.
