Well Mr. Jack Sparrow might have had a problem with all the rum being gone but the town of Piermont, NY has a bigger problem. CJ & I after a great weekend of relaxing & TLC decided to go to a local apple festival to ring in the new season. I’ve been seeing signs for weeks for this Apple Festival everywhere. It was taunting me to go! So we went………….NOT ONE APPLE IN SIGHT!!!! What the hell? Who does that? It was basically a flea market with the usual hot dog & ice cream & the pickle man, but low & behold not one single apple. What a bust!! But I think it’s funny as hell.
I was expecting you know some apple cider, maybe an apple press so you could see them make apple cider, maybe a pie eating contest or an apple pie, maybe an apple turnover or I don’t know a man dressed up as Johnny AppleSeed! Something to do with Fall or Apples. Nadda. Just jewelry & a few odds & ends. I even ran into a friend of mine who showed up & was like, “So where are all the apples?” Oh well, maybe I’ll write a letter.
What’s your favorite thing to do with Apples this Fall? =)
This week tho I’m definitely making an apple pie. I can’t wait to chop up some apples, add the brown sugar, roll out the pie crust, & enjoy some yummy goodness with a dollop of ice cream. Also I bought some apple cider. I love apple cider. I guess you can tell I’m happy it’s Fall? The last few lingering warm days has been such a treat, but it was so nice to just curl up in CJ’s arms & chill out. =)
While the apple festival sucked we did go walk around the town pier. There is so much to New York State that has nothing to do with Manhattan & sometimes the beauty of it all gets overlooked. I live near Suffern, NY the classic farm town from Sex & the City but there is NO FARMS IN THE TOWN! No sexy man on a tractor, no cabin in the woods, nothing like that at all. Just shopping centers & if you blink you’re out of the town. Hehe. No apple farms either. Anywho I'll do a post about that another day. Here are some shots I did take at the pier.

Back to work I go tomorrow. This week is Pay Day so I’m glad for that. I’ll be dreaming of warm apple pie tonight! Good luck everyone for this week! =)
