Last Monday I had the day off so we took advantage of a beautiful day and headed out to lunch in a very quaint town.
spires reach for the beautiful blue sky
We visited a WW2 museum, I really thought I would be bored to tears but it was so interesting. they had it set up that each room was a year of the war. they had what was happening at home, what
children might get for christmas, the music and what was in the movies.
I thought this was pretty interesting that home prices were
about 2X the average income. Not so now.
To use up some of the apples we picked last weekend
I made apple butter...
I canned some for gifts. It came out so amazing.
In all of it's beautiful yummyness. I used
fresh ginger and cider, the apple comes through so well.
This piece has been giving me more trouble then
I can say. I think my confidence is gone and I don't trust my decisions. First the back ground was not dark enough, So I over dyed it with some med brown that was solved.
Then the letter looked to much like crayon so I cut the wool thinner, no luck, now I have taken two different browns let's see if that will work.
Like most of you I have heard the scary awful news of this country.
I have my views why and what should be done or should have been done, but I guess that is for another time.
We have decided that to stay close to home is probably the
best thing. And pray a lot.
Coming events cast their shadows before.
