Applesauce

With fall being just a day or two away Ohiophotogrl thought we should make some homemade applesauce. It’s apple season hear in the 937 so we went out to Peifers Orchard for some local grown apples. This batch will be made with just apples, water and lemon juice to start. Then we will add some spices like cinnamon:0)

First thing we To is peel and core the apples

With the Apple peeler in the top photo it cores the Apple at the same time it’s peeling so it makes fast work out of getting the apples ready. Then we throw them in the pan with the water and lemon juice….

But a lid on it and wait for it to get all tender so we can squish it all up for our applesauce.

Then we will can it and it will look like this

Wonder what we’re gonna do next!

12 miles from home

Ohiophotogrl and I went on a little excursion this morning. We went to a little town close to our home called Yellow Springs. The have a field of sunflowers every year about this time. They are beautiful. We forgot to take a photo of us but here are a few from the field…

There were lots of bees which was great to see

There were even a few that haven’t bloomed yet.

The morning was a perfect time to go! Hope you all have a great rest of the week!

Now that funny

So my friend Dallas sent home a calendar for me. With this being July he thought I would find this funny and I do!

The bottom of the photo says Better….or worse. Now you know how I get my eyes checked lol

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

Where Have I Been

Sorry for disappearing on you. Ohiophotogrl and I have had some crazy times. So much so that I’ve been taking the photos and not being in them. I told her it was crazy but she insisted that I do a blog post about her crazy few weeks. First off we went to the Cincinnati Scotty Friends Convention. She dressed for every event….

She made everyone laugh and have a good time! We spent a week with some good friends! Then we got home and cleaned out the garage! We can fit a car in there now.

Then as we were cleaning the garage we heard a very loud crashing sound from the back yard

Huge tree limb fell! Crazy….Ohiophotogrl was just on her way outback when it happened. Thank God everyone was ok because we had to call someone to come get it out of the yard it was so big.

But now we are back to getting some routine in our lives. Let’s hope that happens soon! Take care and I’ll be back soon!

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

Memorial Day

Ohiophotogrl and I would like to take a moment and thank all the the Soldiers who sacrificed their life’s so we could be free. We would also like to thank those serving for their service. Lastly we would like to thank the family’s that sacrifice time away from their loved ones so that we can have the rights that we have!

Please take a moment and thank those who paved the way for our rights.

Much Love,

Mr P & Ohiophotogrl

World A Fair 2018

Tonight we went to the World A Fair in downtown Dayton, Ohio. We sampled many different dishes and met some really neat people.

We met Kim and Tanya from the Montgomery County downtown Library. they shared with us how much the new library has made such a big difference in the community! Thank you ladies for your time and for being ambassadors for library! Then we met Barbara for the Dayton International Peace Museum.

We have added that to the places we want to visit this summer. Thanks Barbara! When we walked in there was a parade of all the nations that were represented, the bagpipers lead the way…

Then we went in and ate our way around the world. Not really we brought a lot of stuff home to eat this weekend. But let me tell ya they had food for everyone there.if you get a chance to go it costs $8.00 at the door the entertainment is free but it does cost to eat. The World A Fair is located in the Convention Center Downtown!

We even met Uncle Sam

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?
