Fall is Here!

This is just an update. I love that the weather has cooled down and the bugs aren't as active during the day.

My friend, Frank(aka kittys4me and coolguyalone), has a salaried job driving truck. He still travels OTR but it's not as nasty as his last job. He said he's driving a Peterbuilt with all the bells and whistles. I am happy for him. It was driving him crazy being back in his old neighborhood in Philly. Good for you, Frank!

I went to the apple orchard today and picked up a peck of Wealthy for baking and a peck of Honey Crisp for eating. I picked up a ready made pie crust and some phyllo dough to use to bake some of the apples.

I had breakfast with my best friend and then dropped him off some apples. Then I went to his work to visit with another friend.

Work this past week has also been busy. A combination of a lack of people and supplies not being there when we need them and then they come in. I probably will have to quit my job before long. I go home with my hands hurting something terrible, especially my left. I am fearing along with arthritis I am getting carpul tunnel back from doing repetative motions. Today I noticed my left hand going numb and ice cold. I thought it was a panic attack coming on, but it's been like this all day.

LOL, about two weeks from now I will be complaining I hate apples. I only like apples seasonally, fresh from the orchard. The store apples just are not as good.

Ah yes, we are losing sunlight each day. The leaves are producing less chlorophyll and their true colors are beginning to appear. Being a salaried OTR has its ups and downs, but it is more gratifying than being paid per mile.

Any edible fruit/vegetable is better tasting when in season, but even stored edibles are good tasting, too.

Peace and Love,

I love apples, regardless of season but there's something about going to the apple orchard and picking up apples in the fall...Great way to spend time, especially in this fall-like weather....There's a farmer's market here every Tuesday and I can't WAIT for this Tuesday to get some fall stuff...YUMMY

Don't let your past dictate who you are but let it part of who you will become.
