Apples And Other Stuff!

Mmmmmmmmm. nothin' like a fresh picked apple from the tree, eh? Today we chose one of 3 apple orchards that are less than 2 miles away. My pick? The one where the picking orchard
is far far away from the barn where the homemade apple turnovers and cider donuts are made. Danger Will Robinson! It's highly likely I would have caved. Why torture oneself?


The trees are FILLED and it took less than 15 minutes to fill our bag.


In other news, I've actually taken my cross bike down and started to do a bit of training. Next weekend is Gloucester Grand Prix in which I will not be participating but volunteering as a course marshal both Saturday and Sunday. Rumor has it that Lance will be in attendance but that keeps getting squashed as he is saying "no, it's my kids birthday weekend" We'll see, it might be a effort to deflect the masses that would never consider spectating a cyclocross race in the first place.



This past Friday evening I joined in the festivities to celebrate Pro cyclocross athlete, Mo Bruno-Roy's launch party for her 2008 sponsor line up at Wheelworks . She'll be sporting a sweet combo titanium and carbon fiber Seven brand bike with Sram components. Yum. Maureen happens to be my masssage therapist as well. I've been informed i won 2 raffle prizes! Stay tuned on what I won! I have a massage on Thursday.

So you win two "raffles" at your therapist's party? I'm calling shenanigans.

Assuming that my new tire comes in on time, I'll definitely be there this weekend to do some racing and Lance stalking.

I'll keep an eye out for you! If you need help getting rid of any of those apples, I'd be happy to help. :-)

okay, can the apples photos with you and those socks and bootsy shoes get any more cute!

Triathlon-beach-hot sun, I need a day in the country in your shoes!

Mel said...

I agree with Bree you look too cute in those shoes...Apples straight from the tree are the BEST!! Did you just give up candy or did you also do the sweets too...if so no pie for you:)

Trigirlpink said...

No candy AND no scones, cookies, pie, coffee cake, apple crisp, cake, bakery cookies, apple cider donuts, bree muffins....and the list goes on. (sigh)
