I just realized that I never posted an entry about my day of apple and pumpkin picking with Janie. We took the Metro North upstate to this orchard out in the sticks. It was a gorgeous day. We walked 2 miles each way from the station to the farm and the foliage was gorgeous. When we got there the scene included cinnamon apple doughnuts, hot cider, and kids running around being an adorable nuisance. Most of the people were close to the entrance, so we had a relatively peaceful time once we wandered off into the orchards. We brought back apples and I made an apple pie from scratch and Janie made an apple crisp. I think that I'll stop by Janie's place tomorrow to make a pie out of that little pumpkin we brought back. Yum!
