Yum Yum Apple Pie




Its that time of year again, our village is surrounded by walnut trees and as soon as the first winds come they start to drop, off we go bags in hand gathering our freebies that will see us through until next Autumn. We all love walnuts and not only do we eat them as they are but I include them in salads as well. I also have been given a recipe for carrot cake today from one of my favourite bloggers a saucer full of secrets you can visit her over at www.littlewrenhouse.blogspot.com and it includes walnuts much to my delight. My neighbour also came today with a box full of apples so it looks like I am going to be busy tomorrow stewing them ready for the freezer.

Hi, I found you blog hopping and took a quick peek at your other site. That's quite a project you have going on! I'll have to go back later on to view the rest of your entries.

I have a few apple trees and a pecan tree no walnuts though. Beautiful picture!

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I love your photos and will pop over to your website to look at your renovations. Oh, I wish I could be there...living in France is my dream, but alas, I am sure it will never be fulfilled. But what is living without dreams? I am sorry about your challenges with vertigo. A friends has it sometimes and takes Dramamine.

I truly believe that we have reached the point where technology has become one with our society, and I am fairly confident when I say that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as memory becomes cheaper, the possibility of downloading our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I daydream about almost every day.
