It was probably 5:00 p.m. and I couldn’t stay awake any longer so I told Vince I was going to take a quick nap. I woke up, looked at my tablet in bed, and saw that it was 7:40. I thought it was a.m. and couldn’t believe (1) I had slept so late and (2) it was still so dark outside. I was fixing to turn over and go back to sleep and realized it was p.m. and I had probably already ruined my sleeping for tonight.
Then I remembered the freeze dryer was probably about ready to be unloaded so I checked it and yes, when I finish this post, I’m going to take all the apples out an package them. Tomorrow I’ll start a second batch of apples. They were $1.47 or $1.49 on sale at the grocery store (Honey Crisp) and today they’re back to $3.59 per pound. I’m so very happy to have gotten them on sale.
Once the apples are done, I’ll knit a bit . . or a lot . . depending on when I get sleepy. I’m thinking I’ll be up and knitting way past the regular bedtime.
It’s gotten pretty cool here. Vince turned the heater one tonight. That’s one reason I went to bed – I couldn’t get warm. Now I have to go back out into the cold to go process the apples. Yesterday we were out with short sleeves and now it’s cold. I’m not complaining about the cold but it is colder here right now than in Nevada, MO and New York City. 🙂
