Apple Season

After some unseasonably hot weather, I thrilled to wake up this morning to a chill in the air. I love fall with its colors and flavors.

Last week we went with my brother and his family to pick apples.

Friends allowed us to come into their orchard after their harvest was completed and pick up drops and missed apples.

Walking through the quiet rows of trees with distant mountains in view in the slanting evening light was restorative.

With the help of a dozen children, we picked over 40 bushels which were divided among the whole family.

At home we turned several bushels of apples into applesauce. Ed used to take applesauce in his lunch every single day, but now I don't need nearly as much.

Then my family got together on a rainy evening and made apple cider. 

We have not made cider for several years so it was extra special.

What is your favorite fall activity?
