Fall-ish

We hit the apple orchard today. And by hit, I mean we knocked it out of the park in picking crazy tasty apples. The trees were heavy laden, some apples even touching the ground. Bright, juicy, red apples beckoned us to take a bite before putting them into our bags. My mouth is watering now just thinking of how fabulous they were. 

Sunday will be the big sauce-ing day and I can't wait to smell up the entire house with apple-y goodness. The leaves haven't all turned yet, but with the a stop at the orchard and the cooler air (and a need to have the heating guy come fix our heater) it definitely feels like it is fall. 

I'm stocking up on my fall decor and ready to put out my pumpkins. The halloween party is approaching and I can't wait for pumpkin pies and cookies and spiced cider. Not to mention a good excuse to eat more candy.

sooooo jealous.....one thing this time of year that I miss tremendously. Apple orchards and apple picking. No apple orchards for hours here (who would've thunk!?!)

How fun to live close to an orchard! The only kind of apples you can grow here are crab-apples, and I've never been a big fan. It's awesome when we can order in caseloads of B.C. apples... and fortunately, my kids love my applesauce!

Hope the saucing went well!
