Long Day

I don’t like mornings on a good day. Today – Saturday! – I was up at 6 am to shower and dress. I do not like 6 am. It is too light to be last night and too early to be today. But we went west to visit the apple orchard my parents went to near Gays Mills.

I drove. Vicki shopped. Alicia and her friend followed in Alicia’s car. We went to the orchard where Vicki got a bushel and half of apples. We went to Rural Route 1, our favorite popcorn place. Then we went to Peck’s – a road side stand for fresh produce. Now that sounds like a little truck or wagon with produce on it. That’s not what this is.

It’s an open market with a ton of produce, games and activities for kids, and more. Vicki picked up tomatoes and sweet corn. My car was full but not packed in.

Today when we got home, we cut up most of the apples and made applesauce which is all in the fridge. Tomorrow we’ll work on canning it. We’ll also be dicing the tomatoes to can. Ken will take the corn off the cob so we can freeze it.

After Ken and Vicki went to bed, I wanted to write. So I pulled up my computer and wrote a scene. Now I’ve got all these dynamic ideas for my story but I’m so tired my head hurts. I did manage to write a couple of scenes (about 1800 words) but I’m too tired to think of all the details of aliens and so on that I need to create. I think it will be an early night for me.

I hope tomorrow I can make some good progress with this story. I have a bunch of things to get done though so we’ll see.
