Repetition ~ Photo Challenge ~ Apples!
This one came to me right away, when I heard we were doing Repetition, via Chania over at Razmataz. You see, I have two apple trees. And when they are in "production" I have a chore that keeps me hopping, keeps my muscles a bit sore, but keeps 2 deer very happy. For weeks and weeks, I rake up the apples, and shovel them into white 5# buckets. I haul them to my alley and when I have about 6, a fellow I call the "Deer Man" comes down out of the mountains and fetches them and leaves behind, clean, empty buckets. And then the process repeats itself, over and over and over again. I have to admit I am looking forward to the time when I am done, but it does my heart good, to know that "Apple Deer and her baby" will have apples way into the Winter to snack on.
