Apple Picking, Yellow Leaves, Little Brown Bear

When I wear this hat, I somehow feel like a little brown bear. It changes my personality, makes me milder. (I guess I'm thinking teddy bear, not actual bear.) Is it silly? I don't even care if it's silly. It pleases me. I once got a compliment on this hat, shouted out at me by a hipster Harvard student. "Excellent hat!" he said, as I crossed the street, headed for the giant Anthropologie. That was a pretty good moment.





As was apple picking last weekend. Simple little orchard about an hour away from our house. And the day was just right for it--a bit crisp. And the yellow of these trees is just what I love about a New England fall. We came home with two enormous bags full, and we're making steady progress. Apples with every meal! Baked apples! Crisped apples! Apples! Apples! Apples!

Hey Deja,
I just found your blog. I love the hat and the hipster complement! We've been inundated with apples recently as well. Tarte Tartin is my new favorite apple treat. We might have had it for breakfast five days in a row...whoops.

I hate it when you've posted and I don't notice right away! Yeah when the babies were small, Kira and Meesha and I would go pick and do everything with apples we could think of. I miss having an inundation of apples.
