                             Fall Has arrived

Good afternoon, It's been awhile but I'm back. 

The last post I did was almost a month ago and I think I made the statement I was almost done canning. Well I lied (grin) The fresh fruits and veg. just keep showing up on my doorstep. How does that saying go? Get all you can and can all you get!

Today I'm doing some apples my Aunt brought me. Thank you Aunt Joy.  I've started with a batch of applesauce and apple bread. When I get some more time I will be canning the rest. I also canned apple butter a couple weeks ago and it came out great.

Homemade applesauce

 Since my last post all the turkeys have gone except three. There souls have gone to a peaceful place because they led a good life, but there body's have gone in the freezer.(smile) We will be having one for supper tonight.

I've also been decorating for fall. I just love this time of year with all the fall colors, cool nights with a cozy fire. The leaves on the mountain are changing, and my pumpkins weigh about 40lbs.

This afternoon I'm going to a baby shower. I like the fall theme so I've made a diaper cake for fall. It's a little costly but so easy to make. This one took about 60 step 1 diapers. 

I just roll each one and wrap with an elastic. Three rows on the bottom, two on the second and one on the top tier. Secure each row with a large elastic. Then I cover the elastics with ribbon secured with small safety pins, and decorate. Real easy and such a presentation.

Well I hope everyone is enjoying these beautiful fall days. I need to head out now as I have a baby shower to attend.

  2. The turkey is excellent!! The 2nd freezer is half full and I still have to put 1/2 a pig and 1/4 of a cow in. I would love some plums. I call you tomorrow
