Apples Sliced Several Different Ways


Apples have always been a favorite fruit of mine, especially the sweet-tart ones you can find this time of year. Nothing speaks Fall to me like days warmed by the sun, vibrant colors on the trees, and juicy, crisp apples!

I've also been thinking about another kind of Apple this week. Steve Jobs, one of the founders of Apple Computers recently lost his battle with cancer. His creativity, passion and ability to think outside of the box have created a legacy of innovations. I use several "Apple" products daily and as I was preparing this post I couldn't help but think how amazing it is that I can think of a subject, key in the words, search for books from home, request a reserve and share the wonderful world of books with my kids and you as well. Thanks Steve for bringing another kind of Apple into my life.

As a result, this week we are dabbling in a little Apple Art...
