She’ll be Apples…

“Bean finds the best apple in our tree and hands it up to me. “You know what this tastes like when you first bite into it?” she asks. 
“No, what?” 
“Blue sky.” 
“You’re zoomed.” 
“You ever eat blue sky?”
“No,” I admit. 
“Try it sometime,” she says. “It’s apple-flavored.” 
~ Rodman Philbrick, The Last Book in the Universe

‘She’ll be Apples’ is an Australian expression derived from our long history of rhyming slang – Apples and Spice are nice, therefore it isn’t much of a leap to extrapolate that Apples are good – so when we want to reassure someone that things are going to turn out okay we say “She’ll be apples!”

I’m having a bit of a battle right now. This whole Lyme thing, and the meds I’m on have me down for the count. But I know it’s temporary.

So, while I am resting up, here’s some pics of home for you:

Homemade apple crumbles in cute little blue ramekins I found at a garage sale for 20 cents each!

Truly, life is beautiful – even in these hard bits – and I know it’s going to be worth it. Like the saying goes, she’ll be apples!

Thinking of you all as I hold my Gratitude Rock each night,

  1. Have been thinking of you precious. Figured something was up when we didn’t hear from you yesterday. Much love and strength to you lovely. xxx

  2. There was a quote in a movie I watched recently which I really liked, a bit like ‘She’ll be apples’ – it went something like ‘It will all be alright in the end and if it’s not alright it’s not the end’. When I heard it I not only smiled but took it on board.

    Take care and much love to you.

  3. Nicole, you always have an amazing ability to stay positive. Sending you loads of love and support to help bolster your own courage when it’s tough x

  4. Apples, Peaches, Oranges, Passionfruit, Mangoes…and the list goes on…she’ll be sweet as sweetheart…know you are very loved and supported in each moment by ALL who are fortunate beyond words to have you as a friend…MWAH…MWAH…XO…XO

  5. Thinking of you, too, dear light. I really felt that loving supportive connection you mentioned when I first did the gratitude rock meditation (yesterday). I started the program a bit late, but am starting from exactly where I am, in week one. Much love and healing light, blessed Nicole.
