Weekend Wonderings Fourth of July Edition

Patriotic-Tray-5

I have a little Public Service Announcement for you today. If your cable provider offers the music channels, when the 4th of July rolls around be sure to check the seasonal channel (ours is called Sounds of the Season).

Good morning, it's me, the apple picker from redheadcandecorate.com. Did you go apple picking yet this season? We went 2 weeks ago and picked 4 1/2 bushels. Here we are trying our favorite kind...Empire. They are crisp, juicy, tangy, tart, and sweet. Store bought ones are sometimes okay this time of year, but if you ever go apple picking, try them. So...why all the fuss about apples? … [Read more...]
