Blogger isn't letting me post any pictures, but that's alright, I had another one of those non-stop nursing days. Working at the store yesterday tired us all out and with the exception of the husband going to work, the rest of us had a very lazy day. I wanted to do more, but Baby just wasn't having it. Seemed like every time I put him down, he lasted 5-10 minutes before demanding to be held or fed.
We did manage to make cinnamon apple chips with the dehydrator, though. Peel and slice apples really thin, a mandolin slicer helps here, and after a dip in lemon juice to prevent darkening, dip in a cinnamon and sugar mixture. Lay out on dehydrator and let dry until crisp, it took about 10 hours for mine. These won't last long so make several batches.
Working at the store was a different change of pace, but I couldn't do it everyday. Having to work and then tending to baby and children is too much and I am glad this is only for a few weeks. The drive down is nice, but the gas prices are killing us, too. It costs us about $25 in gas round trip so we always deduct that from our earnings. If we make $100 that day, it's really only $75, plus we had to buy food for the kids to eat so that's another $10 knocked off. Going to pack sandwiches the next time we go in. I'm hoping to make $500 and then spend about $100 on things the kids need, and then it's probably minus $125-150 in gas so we only get to take home about $250, but hey-- it's $250 we didn't have before!
I'll be back with photos for Day 9.
