Apples, Apples and more Apples.

Well I cannot even tell you how many apples we got off our tree. I know how cool is it that we rent and have our own apple tree. Anyway we went ahead and picked all the apples off our tree. Who would have thought that a little apple tree could produce so many apples, it did. I had already been spending my spare time peeling, coring and slicing apples to dehydrate. Now I know why my mom never did this, it is a lot of work for something that gets eaten so fast, not only that but it takes so long. I would have made applesauce or even apple pie filling but someone doesn't like any of those things so dried apples is what we have. Like I said I've been doing this for quite some time( like 2 weeks) then to pick all the apples and find out that I still have 4.5 bags left to do. I was so happy that Grandpa & Grandma Johnson wanted some and that Bryce wanted some as well. I know it takes away from my food storage but I don't know how much more I can take. If anyone in eastern Idaho would like a bag of apples let me know I'm willing to part with one.

Been a long time!

I know it's been a long time since I've posted anything. I guess I've been a little busy. I'm busy working for my Aunt Sharon, doing some buying and accounting things for her. Since I've been working for her a lot of my other hobbies and projects have been put on hold. But I have done some fun things as well, such as go to Phoenix, AZ with Aunt Sharon. It was a lot of fun but I also did a lot of work. We stayed really busy for those four days, even though we stayed at the Hyatt in Scottsdale we really didn't utilize the resort like we should have. But we did see the pool for a few hours, we watched 2 shows by Spain the Band. They were really good, really enjoyed them. We were also able to get a massage, even though I think I would have been better off not getting one. The therapist that I had did more harm than she did good. I had a hard time sitting and walking for the rest of the trip. Anyway since then I've been doing a lot of work, spending lots of time at the temple. I forgot that Mitch and I went on a camping trip to Salmon. We tried to catch some steel-head (that's a fish) but we didn't catch any. It was a lot of fun to go up there with Mitch's family, could have done without the snoring which came from one of Mitch's grandparents but they were  very generous to have let us stay with them. I've also been running erands and finally setting up my house like I should have 1 1/2 months ago. It's taken me so long. But this is better than it was when we lived in Rigby. We had been there for 6 months and didn't have anything on the walls. We're real close to having our pictures on the wall. Maybe I'll even go and have a few of our wedding pictures printed. Been married for 1 1/2 years and the only picture we have from our wedding day was given to us from our photographer(it was even framed). Ha ha how horrible I have so many ideas just not enough enthusiasm. Hopefully I'll get in gear and get it done. Maybe I'll be better for the rest of the month at posting. Sorry Don't have any pics at this time maybe I'll find some and put them up later.
