Peacock Spider Dance
Now here’s something a bit fun and different… a peacock spider dance.
Apples and Winter
We recently made our annual fall trip to the apple orchards at nearby Cosby. We have visited several in the area over the years, but usually end up stopping at Carver’s, as well, for their wide selection.
My wife is partial to Rome apples, particularly for cooking, and so we bought our usual bushel. A friend had mentioned that we needed to check out a new Carousel apple, and so we bought one and included it in a small bag of samples. Later, when we tried it, it was crisp and sweet and had a particularly good flavor – so we may have to return and free a half bushel or so of them as well 🙂
My wife made this colorful pizza for a quilt retreat with friends, but its colors certainly fit the season. None, sadly, for any youngsters though, who happen by our door… they’ll have to be satisfied with Snickers. 🙂
