and when your favorite college football team has a bye week,
and when your Foods classes are making Apple Pie on Monday!
Our good friends have an apple tree in their backyard,
with branches heavy with luscious fruit.
The guys went up on ladders
to reach the top branches...
While Patty and I stayed below
to gather those that fell to the ground.
Just the right amount of tart and sweetness!
An added bonus...
The neighbors down the street have a pear tree.
The fruits of our labor.
And later that evening...
after our afternoon chores
(and maybe a nap),
We gathered downtown for some live jazz music
and dinner with friends.
Enjoy what's left of the weekend.
