It's official. All the men have decided to take off from work on Friday.
As they made their plans via phone this evening, I marinated 12 pounds of brisket so I could put in in the oven when I wake up in the morning.
While I'm off learning numbered sets and Kreb's Cycle, Apple Butter Weekend will start to unfold.
When I'm picking up more than a hundred pounds of sugar and fresh allspice and cloves, they'll be cleaning the copper kettles and getting the fire pits ready.
By the time I arrive home tomorrow afternoon, there will be a pick-up with 20 bushels of apples in my backyard.
