I did. Made my last batch of apple sauce in February. This year is supposed to be an "off" year. The apples are really good, both for eating and for cooking, I have no idea what the variety is. The tree is so tall it would behoove us to rent a cherry picker. Instead, I send DH up on a ladder with an apple picker pole that I made an extension for.

Thank you, ladies. And yes, actually getting a little rain from those clouds instead of them just blowing over, was an added plus!

Couldn't quite get ourselves to bed until we were exhausted, but at least we saw a pretty sunrise Sunday morning.

I can never decide which is prettier, A sunrise or sunset.

I can't say. I rarely, if ever, see a sunrise.
