Home safe and sound

Okay, so Quincy is home from his 3 week stay at the hospital.  Emily and I spent a lot of time taking turns with him.  In between my visits I got tomatoes, and grape juice put up and dried some herbs.

We are very happy to have Quincy safely home and recovering.

It is now time to dry apples and onions.  I borrowed dad's food drier to help me with this rather large task.  The grandkids love jello sprinkled on the apples and then dried.  I found this recipe yesterday that sounded really good and I might try it. 

4 apples
1/4 pineapple juice
1 TBL sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon

Peel apples.  Cut into 1/4" think rings or slices.  Dip slices in pineapple juice for 1 minute.  Place dipped apples on your dryer tray.  Mis together the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle on top of apples.  Dry for 6 to 10 hours at 135 degrees F.  until crisp.  Cool and store in an airtight container.

Larry made his famous apple pie the other day and took some over to my dad.  Boy was dad excited to eat it.  It's always a treat when Larry makes pie.

I like my little part time job.  It's enough to give me a little spending money, but not enough to take a big chunk of my day.   

I have been released from the Relief Society Presidency along with the other sisters I served with.  It is kind of nice to not worry so much about other people, but that does not mean I will not think of others, I will just go back to doing it my way.  Silently.

I want my children to know how much I love and appreciate all of them.  I am in the "need to get back on top of things mode".  This may take several weeks.  I have been working most of the day to get the house put back together since I've been gone so much the past 3 weeks.  Maybe when I feel like I am in control of my life again, my headaches will go away.
Anyway, I love you all tons.  It was nice to see Brandon, Elysha and Izzy today.  She is a little cutie.

Love, Mom
