Mom brought over a couple of bags of apples yesterday. My youngest two peeled them and we threw them in the crockpot with some honey and cinnamon. We're cooking them down to make apple butter. My grandma made apple butter, the best. Mine never turns out as well, but I'm fond of it. When I cook them overnight in the crockpot they make the whole house smell so good.
My dh has tomorrow off and we've been looking forward to going to the threshing show. I've come to love these shows. Lots of old tractors, steam engines, horse drawn equipment. Old fashioned ways of threshing grain, making lumber, even things like dyeing fibers, making furniture. It's great.
Labor Day week end, we're finally going camping. We try to go at least once a summer. We're going to Canada and hiking the trails on the bluffs and up to the water falls. It should be great.
Hope you all have a great weekend with your loved ones.
Take God with you.
