Apple Picking

1

Last weekend we went apple picking.

It's not really about the apples for me.

I mean, I love fall. The apples in baskets in my kitchen, baking a pie, all of it.

But when it comes time for the apple picking afternoon it's not really about the apples.

It's a chance to be outside.

Things that are still little

And some things that seem to be growing more each day.

A few last days to savor that good sunshine without jackets, hats, and mittens.

And it's another memory to tuck away and savor forever, juicy and sweet. Just like an apple.

  1. Lovely reflection. I just wish time wouldn't pass so quickly. Isn't funny how we look with excitement to the future and at the same time we are always mourning for the past?

    Have a wonderful evening, my sweet friend. : )
