Monday Thanks

Today, I am thankful for apples– lots of them!

Over 40 lbs. in yummy crisp apples! This is just what I could get from the bottom branches, without a ladder!

Almost all of this will be made into applesauce for G. Once Jesse gets home and picks the top 1/2 of the tree, I’ll be able to make apple pie for Thanksgiving! I also have 2 or 3 people to give apples to.

I can’t tell you how nice it is to not only make G’s daily applesauce from scratch, but to also know that it’s from homegrown organic apples! Normally, apples are treated more pesticides than almost any fruit (I think only strawberries and peaches/nectarines have more). Organic apples at the store can sometimes be pretty expensive! I will always do it though– I don’t want all of that poison going into my baby.

Also, I have to add that even though G slept until 9am (hallelujah! angels are singing!), he’s been napping for over 3 hours now. It happens so often, that I sometimes take it for granted and forget to give thanks for it.
