Columbus Day

Today is our Columbus Day and Canada is celebrating their Thanksgiving.  It is rather interesting that the powers that be made it so that two countries that bordered one another got a holiday and no work or school on the same day.  Works out good for our family since we have  a daughter and son-in-law who live in Canada

We now have almost half of our 2 bushels of apples made into apple sauce.  Maybe we can get the rest made and in the freezer today.  Steve has worked on applesauce for the past two days while I was doing other things.  Yesterday I mixed up a double batch of “snickerdoodles”.  Bradly rolled the cookie balls in cinnamon and sugar for me which was a big help.  I must say though, it felt like I was never going to get them all baked.  They are so yummy though, that I have decided it was well worth the effort.  :o) 

While visiting another blog yesterday I came across a promotion for a really cool shop which is geared around animals and animal rescue as well as the promotion for getting your animals spayed or neutered .  The shop has pages and pages of buttons, key chains and magnets dealing with these subjects.  I thought I would give their shop a feature today.  Here is the addy and a couple of my favorites.
