Granny Smith Apples (one thousand gifts)

Image
My brother in law has one of the best landscapes at his house and in his neighborhood and some of the best Granny smith apples.

Each year I take bags from him when ever possible but this year he gave me starters. I am so excited to try and plant these pretty little shoots.

My sweetheart brought these home last night and the leaves were all rolled up and closed tight so I put them in water and a shot glass and placed them in the window. I wish I had a before picture because this is dramatic change from last night. Leaves are open and there are small roots pushing out of the sides. Now comes the dreaded part lol trying to keep them alive.

Things in our lives have really taken a hard right turn. Some roads are good others not so much but we adjust as we go. There most definitely has been changes in our life style, our needs, our wants and desires. I know that this is such a big part of life... all the turns that we take leading us here and there. But this time I am really aware of it all. Aware of life and how we all interact together, some struggle, some don't and some are so unaware that they wander helpless through life continuously looking for... Who knows what. I guess what I am saying is that it feels like we are on a new adventure, a new life and figuring it out as we go along. Finding the Joy in the new and holding tight to each other and making the best of what has been given to us. 
My husband and I are simply taking it one day at a time separating our self from the plethora of distractions in life and spending more time focusing on each other. 
For me a huge change has been learning how to weave, a life …
