The weather has been perfectly fall lately, if a little dry. A couple of weeks ago we took a drive out to pick up some apples for applesauce and apple butter, and since then I’ve been drying apples in my impulsively purchased Ronco Food Dehydrator. This weekend we’re off to get some pears for dried pears [it’s my understanding that I can quarter them, remove the core and dry away. So easy!] The dried fruit is easier to pack and eat in lunch boxes which is important because my husband and I are working to get into better shape.
My mother-in-law recently took a trip to Hawaii and returned with this piece of fabulous kitsch:
Bobbleshark is soooo happy!
There is something so unbelievably happy making about watching a plastic shark with a giant grin bobble away. There’s no place to install him in the car (since the prius is a hatchback) so he’s been gracing the corner of my desk at home. When I’m feeling down, all I need to do is give him a tap and I perk right back up. I recommend bobbleheads for everyone.
