The Penn State farmer’s market had apples this week. They raise mostly heirloom and experimental varieties.

Aren’t they pretty? The apple is crisp and tart, and very tasty. And no, I have no idea what it’s called, but will try to find out at next week’s market.

I have two Things that must be done by the end of the year (September 30 – the govt must be different), a third Thing that would be beneficial to have done, and two more that Should be done. This week was devoted to poking Thing 2 occasionally while working on Thing 1. Thing 2 has reached the stage where it can do itself (always to be hoped for), and the next phase may finish itself up over the weekend without my intervention. Thing 1 suffered a major setback about 4pm today. It is the crucial component of the whole Thing-mess, and must be finished. So it will. Thing 3 has been an evenings-and-weekend project, as it is quite suitable to doing at home with the laptop. Things 4 and 5? We won’t speak of them.

    I have some whining, too. I had an afternoon appointment, and rather than driving all the way back to work, I brought work stuff & my computer with me–I managed to get the wireless working, but I don’t know the domain name so I can’t log in to the company network so I can’t do what I wanted to. I’ve just about exhausted my guesses as to what the domain name might be. Arg. I’m just too tired to mess around much longer; the last few days have been really stressful.

    Beautiful Apples! I hope you find out the name… crisp and tart sounds like the best combination!

    I’m determined to try to make an Apple Pandowdy one of these days….
