Picking Apples

Spent Saturday picking apples in the orchard. We are freezing and drying them and even attempting to make cider. The sights and sounds and smells of the orchard tell us that fall is here and that the frost is coming soon. We had to hurry to get the apples we wanted in.

How wonderful to spend the day together as a family! Laughing and talking as we gathered the apples that we will enjoy through the coming winter. Days like this are fleeting and soon the children will be grown and gone off to their own lives and family gatherings will be few and far between.

Days like these are treasures and I'm so glad we took the time to gather it in.
