I turned these healthy, fiber filled, fall-a-licious apples into:
This super fat and calorie filled taste sensation! It was the hit of night watch last night! And, oooh, it was good. (More photos of the pie making process at my photo blog.)
I am beginning to adjust to the fact that it is fall. I am sitting here at my desk, there are no leaves on the tree outside my window. There aren't even many leaves left on the lawn after my labor yesterday. This morning it was dark as I left for my 7:30 a.m. meeting. I am going to turn off my sprinkler system today. I am also going to put Christmas lights on two ponderosa pines (in pots) I just put on my deck. I hope that will be pretty. I will probably leave them on all year if they are. And, the best thing of all is that I can hear the sounds of football commentary from my television set. I really love anything having anything to do with football.
Night Watch was really wonderful last night. I was one of the last people to leave which is highly unusual behavior for me. After about 9:00, most everyone had cleared out, and there were five of us, sitting around the dining room table, having great AA fellowship. Those are the best times of all.
