Well the weather people were right on as this morning it is drizzling and much cooler.  Re called and said she was just going to keep the kids home this morning as she had seen her mom and sisters who have been visiting for the week end off and it was already 10am.
Hubbie and I went to Tractor Supply for chicken feed and bird seed early as I didn't have any corn to feed them this morning and they were following me around like little starved puppies even though I filled their laying crumble feeders to the brim.
It is a nasty dreary day and looks like it is apt to stay that way so I started inside work when we got back. Hubbie can't stay inside so he went to stack some fire wood in the shed.
I did 4 loads of laundry and went through some of the baby clothes d-in-love passed this way for me to use with g-daughter and washed them.
I also worked in my office going through some things that have landed in there when I didn't have time to put them in their proper places. I always find things I had forgotten when I do this so there is always a surprise.
At chore time we only had 2/10ths inch of rain in the gauge but the hard rains are suppose to start tonight.
What better way to spend a rainy evening than heating up the kitchen and filling it with the aroma of caramel apple jam !!!
I have some of the Hoover apples left and have had intentions of making this new recipe for a couple weeks now.
It smelled wonderful while cooking.
This looks exactly like the recipe photograph even thought they probably used light brown sugar and I used dark brown sugar, the recipe didn't specify. Anyway it does taste as good as it looks !!!!
I told hubbie we were going to have to eat a lot biscuits this winter to use all this jelly I made. I sliced the remaining apples and filled a crock pot to cook overnight for yummy applesauce.
Back in October 2005 #1 son was hard at work on his land clearing and getting his septic put in with the help of friends Bob and Chad.

As this wet cold day comes to an end I see alot of "blue" showing up already around the country so we are fortunate to just be getting rain.
I'll end with this photo d-in-love sent me of the grands tonight !!!  I thank God every day for the chance to be a part of these two little lives and love watching them grow up.
Also praying tonight for the families involved in a tragic accident this morning when a 2 year old little girl was shot and killed when a 20 gauge shot gun was discharged in the home of her babysitter.
The husband and owner of the gun worked with my #1 son for several years. May God comfort all involved.
Good Night and God Bless.

Your caramel apple jelly looks so good and I bet it tastes even better. Grandkids are both so cute. Blessings
