Spring run off cutting through.

One part of my weekend was spent working at our forest campsite. I trimmed raspberry bushes and found our Concord grapes budding nicely.
The dogs got to sniff around and get exercise and we stood around planning our chores for next week.
Spending entire weekends will happen in the near future.

Then it rained.
Once I returned home,
I baked a couple of apple pies. One for my sister (who’ll be having open heart surgery this Thursday) and one for an elderly lady next door who has been having health concerns. Her family has been in and out a lot so I thought a nice treat would brighten their day.
Making those pies offered me my Weekly Smile.
My indoor activity turned out to win the day.
The joy of giving is hard to beat!

Thanks for stopping by!

    I’m so jealous that you have a woodland campsite. Must be delightful wandering there all year.

      It is! A little slice of heaven. Wish I could invite you there. 😊

        I do love a good camping session. Maybe one day, I’ll be able to book a weekend there.

    The camp looks great. Good luck to your sister! And I am sure the pies generated a lot of smiles on the receiving end πŸ™‚

    You have had a great time, pity about the weather. I am sure the Apple Pies were appreciated, I love apple pie with ice cream.

      Thanks. My apple pies are legendary in our family! πŸ˜€

    What a lovel camp spot! And I can almost smell that apple pie. Hmmm…maybe I should make one.

    How wonderful you share joy by baking for others – apple pies are always welcome! Hope your sister’s surgery goes well. Sending lots of positive energy your way.
