Lately I’ve Been Thinking…

Lately, I have been thinking that summer is way too quickly coming to an end.  I like cider, donuts and apples as well as anyone and yet long summer days with lots of sunshine and green trees holds my thoughts captive.  I will admit that having a freshly made caramel apple, hand dipped and rolled in crushed peanuts is hard to find in the summer months.  And yes, Travis and the Wiard’s store crew makes the best caramel apples in the state….and yet my emotions are not quite ready for fall.  With the heavy spring rains the pumpkins are feeling a bit like I am feeling, not quite ready for fall; maybe by the time they turn orange I will be ready for that caramel apple.  For those of you who are ready right now- you are going to need to wait a few more days, Travis will make the first caramel apples here at Wiard’s on Tuesday, September 8, when we open the Wiard’s Country Store.  In the meantime I think I will take an afternoon and soak up some summer sun before it’s gone!
