It’s true, autumn is giving life. Sounds super alternative, but at the moment I’m busy with all that my parents garden has to give us. Many many kilo’s of apples, which we are turning into ‘appelstroop’, a solid applesirup to put onto the bread. Since I had been collecting so many apples, and I remembered cleaning this summer the barns with all the rotten apples from last year, I thought about what to do with the apples of this year. My mom told me to put them in that same barn, and I saw the verdict of the apples already: next year I would have to clean them again, rotten. This verdict wasn’t to my liking, so I thought: what about making this applesirup? We’ve never done it before, but it is so tasty! Even my little nephew who doesn’t like the ones from the shop, loves this one.
Instead I’ve been making a bed for myself, for inside the house, out of 2 planks which used to be on the wagon. It has taken a little time, but it is finished now, and tonight I’ll have my first night to sleep in it. Good news: the mattress fits perfectly, so my building skills have so far been just fine.
