How ’bout them apples?

Now these are the very last of the Honey Crisp Apples. We have a relatively young tree which yielded about twenty pounds of sweet, crisp, and on average, large apples. We also have a Goodland or Battleford tree, which yields some fairly good eating/cooking apples, and a Norland tree which produces a lot of apples very early (mid August). Most of the crop has been processed and frozen.

I was in the garden after our beautiful Sunday brunch with friends. It didn’t take too much time to dig the last of the potatoes, as there were just a few hills left. They look gnarly and a bit scabby and they are delicious!  I will just peel and cook up these as I have done with the rest of the potato bounty.

As usual, I have enjoyed a wonderful week with my best four-legged friends around me. Except for Thursday, I didn’t have many dogs to groom: in my world, four small dogs in one day is plenty.

While I was finding pictures of the Pet Hostel present or recent population to show you, I thought, “I should find something pithy to say in this blog.” But I’ve got nothing. Nothing pithy today.

It’s Sunday afternoon and we have a Netflix movie on, “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot” which I watched a couple of nights ago and want to see again. So I’ll leave you to dream up your own profound thoughts.

Hope you are all very well!
