My goodness, has it been a busy couple of weeks around here.
With Xavier’s help, I canned several jars of applesauce.
He contributed some chopping, hard work at the food mill, and–perhaps most importantly of all–the perfect name for our sauce.
Among oh so many things, the past couple of weeks have also brought us mini pumpkin cupcakes with (vegan) cream cheese frosting (yum)…
…some sorely needed dissertation writing time…
…and some all-important Halloween costume making time (complete with the requisite gnashing of the teeth time followed by triumphant squeals of delight for having outsmarted the pattern makers once again).
We are trying so very hard to embrace this happy chaos. And with a weekend full of Halloween fun ahead of us, we’re just getting started.
