I wish I would of taken this photo last evening. With the setting sun shining on this maple it literally vibrated with color. There is this pink/orange the leaves change to...before they turn red. I don't know what color it actually is but I love it!
I made another batch of concord grape jam last night between homemade enchiladas. Yes they were scrumptious! and........I have in the freezer two more dinners. If I am going to make enchiladas, I am making enough for several meals. This jam really turned out great! I gave two jars to a friend of mine, and her son and his girlfriend ate almost an entire jar Saturday morning for breakfast on their toast.
This Thursday there is a shop hop....Gladstone, Escanaba, Minominee, Mareinette, Oconto Falls and Crevitz. I have allotted myself $100...hopefully I will come home with $ and maybe one or two nice things. This year they are giving out 2 first prizes...$50 gift certificate and $50 gas card. Same with second place...but $25. Shows you how they know how hard times are and the gas card would come in handy. The gas prices have really dipped here...yesterday in Iron Mountain $3.24 and down the hill it is $3.39 and $3.37. I am glad my car gets from 33-35 mpg...I love my little Ford Focus wagon...wonder why they quit making them...if it is a bad reason I don't want to know.
Now it is upstairs to sew. Have a great week!
