Laboring Weekend

We spent our Labor Day weekend working.
Well, we worked Saturday and Monday....
Sunday is the 'day of rest' in our home.

Saturday was cool and breezy.
Not really an ice cream treat sort of day,
but we wanted to support the seasonal ice cream cones that a nearby family owned convenience store offers.

Our friends have an apple tree.
They told me I could pick their apples.

So I did....with some help.

The tree wasn't big, so our job was done rather quickly.

But a laborer is still worthy of his reward....

And I was looking for a reason to try out a new pie crust recipe.
It is an AMAZING crust!!
(I will find the link and share that in my next post)

Now to decide what to do with my basket of apples....
my family suggests more pie!

Can't wait to see your crust recipe! Apple pie is yummy, but apple crisp and apple sauce are almost as good....... Lucky you to have such fresh apples!

What a big bunch of yum Sheila... I think I gained weight just reading this post... ;)
