Apples Two Apples
Right this very minute Maria is at the bottom of the stairs playing a rollicking game of Apples to Apples.
Have you played? Do you like to laugh? Do you like to be fiercely competitive for about forty-two seconds? Do you like to defend your point of view, however absurd? This may be your game. It's our game for sure.
Max still takes great pride in the fact that he taught us how to play. I still think of the great game we played in Wisconsin, when we laughed ourselves silly.
Two apples... These fresh picked apples came from two of our apple trees. Our first harvest! We sampled both varieties, and I think we agree for fresh eating the Dorsett Golden was our favorite. The more plentiful fruit came from the Anna, and those were baked last night. Apple crisp, anyone?
Now that we've enjoyed our apples, we would like the sun to shine, so that the rest of our garden can flourish. Around here people will be talking about this cloudy, drizzly, cold, and unseasonable July for years and years... it's truly exceptional.
