"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

October skies...

"Cap" clouds over Mt. Rainier.  I could see them from here but could never take a photo such as this one, which came from our local news station King5. They rather look like flying saucers don't you think?

Not much to say about my weekend except that I am over my head in apples,  Applesauce, apple crisp, apple pie, apple, apple, apple.  Any ideas?  And just because everyone has the impression, myself included, that bloggers lead perfect lives I can guarantee you it's not true.  They just don't like to blog about it.  "Snarky" is the word of the day here...and I'm talking about me!!  Have a good Monday all.


  1. Oh I know Joanne, I hate to whine about my troubles, mostly bodily breakdowns, really no one wants to hear and I don't want to be one of those boring old folk who talk endlessly about their health-or lack thereof! So on we go, bearing up under the burden of bodies that have a use by date from the
    Manufacturer! Doing the best we can, fighting the pain & all and trying to stay as strong & healthy as we can, right?
    Life is hard, Joanne, but God is always good.

  2. stunning cloud formation, and apples galore, here we have had beans by the bucketful every day for weeks, I sliced as I watched tennis, the news, before lunch, froze, did bean pickle ( not a good idea), then it was cauliflowers, that pickle yummy. I'm sure later on all the apple work will be so good to have. Cheers.Jean

  3. What about Apple Sorbet? I was looking for a less calorific recipe as we'd been eating a few too many yummy apple desserts. There are lots of recipes out there. This one doesn't use an icecream maker in the process!


  4. I love the picture!!!!!!! I can only imagine you surrounded by apples!!!!!!!! What a lovely vision that is!!!! I do hope you find lots of yummy recipes for them so during the winter you will have lots of good food to eat! Also, everyone gets snarky once in a while! It is okay!


  5. Stop that snarkiness and cook those apples. Then eat some of your wonderful goodies and revel in the fact that YOU did it. Be happy!

  6. I survived peach season. Funny how creative you can get when inundated! I've just begun apple season. Dried apples (with skins). Applesauce (with skins too, just cored and I use the ricer to remove the skins after they've cooked). Snarkiness I understand. But also the satisfaction that comes from the finished product which is soooo much better than any gourmet item you can buy!

  7. OMG! Those cap clouds, Joanne! I would be snapping away like a snarky idiot!! lol
    Can apples be frozen? If so, freeze some for smoothies.

  8. How about a "Waldorf Salad"? I haven't had that in a long time! I love this time of year. The cloud pic is awesome! Hey, there's no such thing as a perfect life....I've never had one and I've never known anyone who did! I hope your week goes good for you Jo....perfect or not!

  9. That is a phenomenal picture. I could never take one like that either! Those clouds DO look like UFOs.

    Happy appling to you- xo Diana

  10. Wow. I have never seen anything like those clouds! Nothing ever like that in NC! I wouldn't know what to do with an apple except eat it. No cook here. I like the word "snarky" LOL and have fun with those apples! xoxoxo
