Tired Mommy

Exhausted, actually. Would have loved to crawl into bed after reading two chapters of Little House on the Prairie, but all those pears and apples we picked last week won't last forever. Tonight was apple night. I made a batch of apple butter, a gallon+ of applesauce, 2 apple crisps, and 2 apple-pear crisps. Pretty good for one night! Tomorrow night, bli neder, I'll make pear butter, apple-pear sauce, and pear bread. Hoping to finish up a couple batches of peach jam too. The pears are so delicious. They're just perfect right now. It was good to get some things made ahead too, with all the holidays coming up: Rosh Hashanah (2 days), Yom Kippur, Sukkot (6ish days; 2 are non-working days), Shemini Atzeret/Simchat Torah (2 days). Dean has already put in 30 extra hours at work, so he'll be able to take all the holidays as comp time which is really great. More like collapse time. It's a lot with the normal stuff + papa working extra hours + homeschooling + teaching one afternoon per week. Yawn. Time to pack up the applesauce and go to sleep.
