I get into a frenzy of posting and think, oh what a good blogger I am. And then I seem to rest on my laurels and get lazy and not post for a week.

In an effort to put a dent in the thousands of apples from last week's Linvilla expedition, I made an apple cake. Here's a picture, with what's left:

Good effort, eh? Well, the recipe for the cake called for two apples. Yep, that sure put a dent in all those apples!!! And of course, I felt like I had done such a monumental thing that I haven't attended to the apples since. [sense a pattern in my life here??]

On the knitting front, I've been finalizing a bunch of Momogus Knits patterns. I swore after they were all done I'd knit something UN-Momogus Knits-y, so of course I started this, a sweater for Gus:

Yeah, that would be the Momogus Knits Cabled Child's Pullover. Oh well. I'll start something else soon....

We chased a train this weekend.

Those are old Reading Railroad engines at the end of the train. They were supposed to be pulling the train in a spectacular photogenic matter, but they were broken, I guess. It was interesting to see all the foamers [nutso train watchers] gathered in the middle of a field in the middle of nowhere.

It was a gorgeous day anyway. It seems like fall weather is finally here, though I see it's supposed to go up to 80 in a couple of days. No worries, though.

I can vouch for the apple cake being very tasty. The pullover and the trains, well....

Hey, how about chocolate dipped or caramel apples. The boy could take them to school -- he'd be a big hit!

Honey, ain't nothin' wrong with knittin' ONLY your own patterns! Julia Child has a lovely recipe for applesauce in "The Way to Cook." I'm feeling your pain, by the way, now that the Sox are down one game in the ALCS.

Anon - thank you. You did the cake justice.

CG - they aren't allowed to have candy in school - I wonder if a M&M-coated caramel apple would count..... It's a fruit after all - that's how I rationalize it whenever I get one...

Suzanne - it's gloomy times around here, Bosox-wise. I don't care that much because my beloved Phillies are done, but my Papi-lovin' spouse is very blue. I think applesauce is the way to go for maximum apple usage - I'll go dig up Julia ('s book).

Please don't dig up Julia. Ugh.

I'd ask his teacher -- I'll bet they wouldn't mind.
