Rambling Monday ~ 24 October 2011

Wow…it’s been a week since I posted anything.

Friday night, while my husband had boxing on, I prepped a lot of hexies so I can start making flowers again.

Spent Saturday up in Virginia City and then at Bowers Mansion. It was supposed to be cooler up in VC…but they lied. We wandered over to our favorite park up there to play a game of cribbage and frisbee. OH! That reminds me…if’n you’re ever in the need of a GREAT frisbee that just ‘feels’ right? Look no further than Del Sol! Just love that frisbee!

Then over to Bowers Mansion for a couple of games of horseshoes and to walk around.

After getting back from our outing I started washing the box of Macintosh apples I got from Apple Hill so I could make applesauce.

I used a recipe I found online at Simple Bites…posted by Aimee on 29 Sept 2010. I liked the idea of leaving the skin on while cooking the apples!

CLASSIC APPLESAUCE RECIPE

I added two cinnamon sticks, two vanilla beans and two cups of apple cider with my apples.

Here is some of the finished pint jars of applesauce ~ it’s very tasty! Thanks, Aimee!

Saturday Rambles ~ 6 November 2010

Just a few rambles for tonight….

First off, as I stated on FB Friday morning….Jay Leno is an arse! SF Giants Brian Wilson, our awesome closer, brings the World Series trophy with him to his interview Thursday night…and the idiot took it from Brian then put it on the floor BEHIND his desk. First time I’ve ever seen Brian a bit flabbergasted! Should have waited for Conan to restart his show! Again…You, Jay Leno, are an ARSE!

The colors are very pretty in our area right now.

My sister and I took our lunches to Rancho San Rafael park on Friday and walked around to take pictures.

152 Days until Opening Day 2011 at AT&T Park.

It’s going to be cooler and raining tomorrow…I have fresh chestnuts to roast! Bought a bag full at Ikeda’s in Foresthill (near Auburn), CA. I love that place.

The colors are also pretty up in the Sierra! I took a drive today to Apple Hill (Placerville, Ca area). Some pictures along Hwy 50 and 80.
