::30 Days:: Day 3

Today was our weekly visit to the Library. A volunteer reads stories to the kids (there are more kids out of the frame) and afterwards, does art projects. Today's project was paper bag puppets. Check out that great mural!! I love looking at it.

More applesauce making when we got home. I checked out "27 Dresses" from the library and watched it as I peeled and cored the apples. I lost the interest of the girls and did most of the work myself.

Too busy making applesauce to make a proper dinner, so grilled cheese sandwiches were on the menu tonight, with applesauce for dessert.

Hubby was a big help, trying to soothe and comfort a crying baby so I could finish the last batch of applesauce. Baby has a set of lungs on him! Made another 10 quarts today. I'd like to make at least 20 quarts of applesauce, so will make one more batch which will bring me up to maybe 25. The leftover apples (if any) will be eaten in pies and desserts or dried.

I am loving your "30 Days" blog... I find myself looking forward to your blog every night to see what you did during the day :o)

I just laughed when I saw the picture of your crying baby with your hubby. It's FUNNY!

I want you to know that my own children grew up on toasted cheese sandwiches with tomato soup for "dunking". Now they are doing the same for their own children and grandchildren! I recall one of my neighbors who had "popcorn for dinner" every Friday!

It is this type of thing that makes memories and passes on traditions.

Hurrah for you!

Mishkazena-- I like staying busy, too much idle time and I get restless. Though I do like my quiet moments, too! :o)

Karen-- I'm happy to entertain you! :o) I hope I don't run out of steam with the picture-taking and keep this up for another.. 27 days!

Lisa-- not so funny for the baby! :o)

Lantana-- Grilled cheese sandwiches are my absolute favorite!! I LOVE 'em! I read somewhere once, they surveyed some people and said people eat 7 grilled cheese sandwiches a year. I don't know who they talked to, but we eat wayyyyy more than that! My mom can't eat grilled cheese sandwiches without a bowl of tomato soup, too! :o)
