Today was a PA day (pupil free day) for students in the Halton Catholic School District, so the kids and I had an opportunity to spend some time together. It was such a lovely day, with a cloudless blue sky and the trees changing before our eyes to the colours of red and orange, not even a top temperature of 13 degrees could chill our spirits.

After a spot of shopping this morning, we headed off to an apple orchard to do some apple picking. Our neighbours Dave and Claudia did this last weekend and really enjoyed it. They had so many apples they just had to invite us in that evening to help them eat an apple pie which Claudia whipped up when they got home.

You don’t need to drive for long in Oakville before you leave the built up areas and arrive in farmland. Rae’s Apple Farm which is located on the corner of Britannia and Eighth Line is only a 10 minute drive from home and gave us an experience to remember. The trees were grouped in sections according to the type of apple and armed with our plastic bags, off we went. The cost is $9/bag of apples, which is not really all that cheap, but I suppose it covers the wastage incurred by people like ourselves who are not professional fruit pickers and tend to drop or knock fruit off the trees accidentally.

With Halloween only a couple of weeks away, pumpkins were on display ready to be gutted and made into Jack O’Lanterns and the orange colours were again spectacular against the backdrop of the blue sky.

Well, I best finish off here so as to hurry back into the kitchen to see how those apple pies and crumbles are coming along.

Just Kidding!!
