Fall Vacation: Day 3

Monday, September 26, 2016

It was a busy, but FUN day!

First up…as usual — walk and breakfast.  It was REALLY chilly (30s!).  I was happy to get inside and make my English muffin and drink my warm coffee (I think I warmed it up like four times during the meal!)

Then time for a shower because our goal was to be out the door by 10:30 am.  I think we did pretty good — we were in the car by 10:45 am.

Destination?

Apple picking!!

We arrived around 11:15 am.  Two types of apples available for picking — McCowan and MacIntosh.  I was SO happy that the McCowan were available…they are my favorite!  The apples were a little smaller than normal because of the summer weather, but they tasted GREAT.

Even though it was a cooler day, we were in the sun and so we warmed up pretty well.  We got about 30 apples.  Now we’ll have to go to town eating them!  Total cost ~ $20.

On the drive home we stopped at a little fall-themed store.  They had tons of animals shaped with metal and these really nice flower planters made with wood in the shape of a tree house.  We were definitely thinking of getting one, but the $85 price tag scared us away.  Instead, we got two cute signs made of wood — one said “You & Me” and the other said “Come Sit on our Porch.”

By the time we got home we were hangry — lunch was leftovers from Olive Garden.

After lunch I took down all the spring/summer decorations and dusted (well needed). Then I lugged up all our fall decorations and we got to town putting them up.  Took about two hours, but it looked AWESOME when it was done.

By this time it was close to 5:30 pm, but instead of making dinner, we headed out to Barnes and Noble and had “dinner” there — Pumpkin Spice Lattes and Salted Toffee Caramel cookies…SOOOO GOOD.

We were home by about 9:30 pm — just enough time to make some popcorn and watch an episode of Criminal Minds (LOVE that show).
