What!? Three days in a row! If this was like my Nike running app it would be congratulating me for blogging three days in a row or better yet, for blogging more times this week than last week. Maybe that’s what I need…a little motivation from the blogging voices.
Anyway, this past Saturday was a perfect fall morning. Cool temperatures, plenty of sunshine and a trip to the local apple orchard. Like I mentioned in my last post, Patty, another coach’s wife is showing me some of the ins and outs of southern Illinois. This time we headed up the highway to a little apple orchard outside of Marine. It was the full apple picking experience!
After the orchard it was back to Greenville for a busy day. Until I had my blonde moment, or maybe just a Megan moment. I completely locked myself out of the house. With Trent and our only key in Minnesota. Trying to be extra cautious (we do live right next to a prison) I locked every single door and lock possible when I went to bed Friday night, including the one from the garage into the house. When I left Saturday morning I went out the front door and locked it behind me planning on just using the garage code when I got back. When I got back I was running late for Kirsten’s volleyball game, but wanted to drop my apples off and grab a quick snack. Then it quickly dawned on me…when the door in the garage would not turn…that I had completely locked myself out of the house. Still with Trent and our only key in Minnesota. Panic quickly took over as I tried to remind myself that this was not the end of the world and I would in fact be okay. Eventually I was able to get ahold of my landlord and meet up with him to get an extra key.
A couple of things I took away from this experience…I do not know how to pick a lock. My neighbors are the best. A spare set of keys are necessary.
Even with Trent out of town it was a good weekend. Sunday I used my apples to make some homemade applesauce in the crock pot and I am already planning my next apple recipe. 10 pounds of apple leaves room for a lot of opportunity! Added bonus…Greenville won their game in Minnesota 44-9 and the defense held Minnesota Morris to negative rushing yards! Things are looking up…
