The long of it is that all of those apples from two weeks ago have been eaten. Well, there are a few that were frozen (sliced and peeled, for pies and baking), but the rest are gone. That's what happens when you live with three teens. Needing apples, and facing a busy day, we got up this morning and drove straight to the farm. It started raining just as we left. By the time we arrived, the rain had picked up, and as we were picking, the thunder began. On the upside, we got parking right next to the entrance. Also, there was no competition for apples. We had all the trees that we wanted to ourselves, and were able to fill two bags in no time.
This, of course, wasn't my walk for the day, but it was some time to be one with nature. We are so removed from nature, living in our environmentally controlled (heated, cooled, lit, humidified, de-humidified) homes, offices, stores, schools, libraries, coffee shops. I've gotten wet on this 365X5 so far, but it was good to do it again.
And tonight, when it was dry, we walked our 5k, under a full moon. It was cloudy, the moon only peeking out occasionally. A beautiful night walk. Lovely to connect with nature and that part of myself.
