My apple trees are bearing some fruit!
So the apples aren't picture perfect; that's because we don't like to spray. But I have about a dozen trees of different varieties. I know you can already start to smell the applesauce and apple pies and apple upside down cake, and are getting jealous. After all, I'm hungry just thinking about them!
And there was an earthquake centered not too far from my friend Chan shortly before 2PM. I thought Thor was kicking my chair at first, and my dearly beloved told me to stop shaking the table before the boys came racing in from the family room to ask what was happening. Happily, this wasn't a serious earthquake, just enough to make everyone in this house with 18" thick masonry walls laugh at each other for wondering what happened. My daughter in Philadelphia said everyone evacuated the high rises there and just stood around in the park looking at each other. This is normal in the western US, I know, but it's a novelty here on the east coast.
Happy Tuesday, everyone; hope your house isn't shaking tonight!
