Week 40 – October 1 – 7, 2012
(completed on 12/14/12)
After school the boys would stop at the apple tree to eat. Today I caught them using some teamwork to get their apples.
Sometimes Henry wakes up when the boys are getting ready for school. He fell back to sleep in his chair.
I trimmed our raspberries last winter so I wouldn’t have a crop to pick in June/July with a new baby. I thought I would be ready for picking by the time the fall berries were ready. It was hard for me to keep up.
If you look closely you can see Nola Mae’s sad face. She wasn’t happy with picking raspberries because I wasn’t moving around enough. She squirmed around and tried to escape. By the time I got to the house my wrap job had gone bad!
I was a little discouraged with my wrap so I dug out my Ergo this week. It fits her perfectly!
I love to make applesauce. I love feeding applesauce to our boys. I love sharing it with friends and my nephew. Our apple tree blossoms were damaged during a frost this year. We had very few apples so I bought four bushels of apples from Country Corner Sales.

After my stop to pick up the apples I went to the Amish greenhouse, Sunset Acres, for squash and pumpkins. Perry is a good salesman and talked me into a huge mum plant. I bought it with my birthday money that I got from my mom. If I didn’t have that money burning a hole in my pocket I never would have bought it. I hope that I planted it soon enough that it will come back next year! Thank you, Mom!
I follow The Pioneer Woman’s blog. I found these Slice-and-Bake Cookies.
I made a few changes…instead of nuts I chopped up garbanzo beans and I made a double batch and put these in the freezer. If I were to do this again I wouldn’t chop the M &Ms. We have been enjoying a small amount of cookies every once in a while for a treat.

Once in a while I get Mystique out and give the boys a ride.
