Fallen Apple Tree

A week ago, we had strong winds and a storm blow through here. I have 2 big, bushy apple trees in my backyard that has provided us with applesauce, apple butter, and apple pie filling. When this storm went through, it took one of my apple trees down with it. I cried and cried when my hubby and son had to saw it. I was thinking of all the things I could have done with the bounty it would have provided. Last year, we had so many apples I gave some to 2 other ladies to make applesauce and apple pie filling. This year, with only 1 tree, I won't be able to share. As long as we have the apples for us this year, I guess we will be happy.

Been Working

I have been a busy person. I have been making my own biscuits and they were flat and didn't taste very good. I was using 100% whole wheat and switched to full white flour. The biscuits came out fluffy, tall, and the family loved them.

I am so proud of these biscuits! I definately will be making these again.
I also have been working on early gifts. I started with a hat. This was my first time knitting a hat and I think it looks good. I also started making fingerless gloves. I have one done but still working on the other one and will be done in a few days.

This is the glove. I think they turned out really good!
I have been getting my things ready for my surgery in three weeks. I went to a different doctor today that did the first surgery and he wanted to see me back the day of my surgery. I told him that would be impossible. I definately won't feel like being on my stomach for him to check me out. Things will all work out.
Well it is bedtime and I really need my sleep. So I'm off to beddy-by.
