Note to self (and don’t ever forget this again!):

Yep…that’s right…

We had about two bushels of apples that needed peeling, coring and slicing today. Try as I might, I could not drum up the excitement that I needed to get this job done…

As we stood around the counter and tabletop, talking and slicing, Michael casually mentioned how he wished we had one of those “apple thingies” that he had seen at a neighbor’s house. Well…gadget lover that I am…we do have an apple corer/peeler! I dug it out and that was all it took.

Michael suddenly got VERY excited about the project and he and Ruthie proceeded to plow their way through the entire bunch of apples we needed to do.

Now, the kitchen is clean, the freezer is full of apples and all is well in the Hatter household.
