Reality Check..................

I just spent a week with my toes dipped in the Gulf Coast sipping iced coffee and humming Rolling in the Deep by Adele, that was fine until my daughter told me the song she had stuck in her head..Then, I had multiple choices to drive me insane .It could have been worse, I once spent an entire week at work humming "If I only had a brain" from the Wizard of Oz, not only drove me but several other people to the edge (Whatcha ya humming now?)...Other than that the week was wonderful, Sun, Sand and this little fellas first beach trip...

He's gonna be a natural beach baby , he thought the waves were rolling just for him..
I came home and quickly realized that my laundry had multiplied on the trip, because I don't remember packing all those clothes.. I was still on that vacation high(or just being lazy) with the faint scent of Hawaiian Tropic still lingering on my skin and Jimmy Buffett playing in my head when my husband "Rico Suave"walked in the door, he was carrying several bushels of apples a brand new apple corer and a smile on his face, "Look what I brought you, these are beauties"...He said "What do you think", I gave him my usual, I'll give you three guesses but you'll only need one.. He never likes that!!!! (He never guesses right anyway) And I never win!!!
"Better get on these soon before they get soft don't ya think".....I asked was there something sparkly in the bottom of all those bags for me when I finished...I'll give you three guesses what the answer to that was...........But you won't need them!

Ah, the vacation laundry. We just brought home a whole bunch of it last Monday. ;)

Apples? I remember getting bags and bags of them from my parents when they had apple trees in their back yard. We had apple EVERYTHING and still had plenty to can for the next year. Yum! But, you're right, it sure takes time.
