A Good Deal, Could I Buy Just the Boxes?, Mom is In the House

1. Ikenberrys sells these 50 pound bags of "horse apples" for $14. We called them "utilities" or "drops" in New York.  These are the apples culled out of their store bins that are bruised or imperfect. This mixed bag will be cooked down into applesauce. But not before I make a few pies and dumplings first. I feel like I've won a prize!
2. I visited the Clinique makeup counter at the department store today and browsed products that boast great results for aging skin. I enjoy handling all the tidy little boxes the makeup is packaged in more than actually owning the makeup.
3. Tess says, "This is why I like it when you're home. There's food!"


  1. When I was working and could afford makeup and skin care stuff, I loved looking at all the pretty little containers and moving them about in makeup bags, etc. Funny stuff we women can be!

  2. I just read your last few posts. Congratulations on your new grandson! What a big baby! Can't wait to hear his name. How lucky your daughter is to have you stock her freezer with things like pot pies and cranberry bread. And how lucky you are that you are good friends with her mother-in-law. That is really lovely!
