In May 2011, after four years of life on McNutt's Island, we moved to Montreal. This blog remains, though, as a (sort of) daily record of our time on the island, and a winding path for anyone who would like to meander about among its magical places. For additional perspectives and insights I recommend Greg's book, Island Year: Finding Nova Scotia (2010), and my Bowl of Light (2012). I'll continue to post once in a while. If you do want to read this blog, one option would be to begin at the beginning of it (which is, as we all know, in blog-world, at the end), and read forward, concluding with the most recent entry. It's a journal, really, so it does makes more sense if you read it that way. But, you know, read it any way you like.

rainy day activities

Earl turned out to be a bit of a blowhard, but it was a good day to be indoors. The kitchen was a peaceful place today, and smelled pretty heavenly. Greg added three cups of blueberries to the first batch of applesauce.
This applesauce maker is a brilliant invention, as you can see.
Jars of blueberry applesauce.Unadorned applesauce, incredibly good. Also, apple butter is in the crockpot ...
...then there's this apple tart with apricot glaze.
The hens thought maybe we would invite them in for applesauce.
