73 degrees outside right now. I've still had the light weight blanket on the bed. Even DH hasn't complained. No one offered him a ride this morning. He said there was very little traffic on the base roads. I got out my tiny ironing board which is about half the size of a normal one and pressed a couple of pair of capries. I normally don't press them but they were so wrinkled when they came out of the washer/dryer.
Patty, my DS in N.C. loves honey crisp apples. I don't see them in our grocery store very often. If they do sell them they are only available a very short time.
Glenna, my mother use to make chocolate bread pudding and a hard vanilla sauce to go on top. One of the buffet restaurants we go to once in a great while has it and it is very good. I don't make it as I try and stay away from the bread products. I don't think DH oat and bran bread would make very good pudding. LOL
Sarah, I also like Macintosh apples when I am in New England. They are another apple you rarely see in our stores. If they have any they are terrible, mushy and tastless. I like a crisp tart apple. Our gala apples have been very good this year. We are close to the area where Fuji apples are grown. You have to go off the main roads to find the farms though. Yes, I got my muffins made. Either make um or no breakfast for me.
We have a gas fireplace in our family room. It doesn't get used much. Not good for heat, mostly just for watching the flames. Every year it is a game with me to see if we can make to Dec. 1st before we have to turn on a wall heater. I do have an electric heater that is suppose to just heat a small area. I tell DH to use it if he wants to watch TV in the family room. That room has a high ceiling and the heat goes to the ceiling and the floors are cold. DH never thinks to turn the ceiling fan on with it on reverse to circulate the heat.
We should be out driving around sight seeing but we're not. I guess we are getting old. I'm content to just stay in camp. Tuesday we will be moving to the rally. DH has been emailing our caravan members to see how many members we will have next year and so far it doesn't look good. So many are cutting back on their travels, and a few have even sold their RV's.
