Dark, wet, and overcast this morning when I got up. Looks like no outside work today. My new iPhone is still working this morning so thats a good sign. I did call Apple and set up Apple Care on the phone and that was a pretty easy process. Then I got the phones all ready to send in for the rebates. Then I went online and changed our Data Plan as we could get more date (2G) for $10 less a month. The data plans have come way down this month so we took advantage of it. Not sure if we still get the 2G bonus for upgrading.
Bonnie peeled apples and we made and canned more applesauce.

On the way to church I dropped a cable off for Alexus so she could charge her phone. Then 4 deer walk across the road in front of me. Practice went well and I was home by 10pm. Bonnie still had Quince cooking on the stove and is trying to drain the juice off of what she made earlier.

When we woke up this morning winter had returned. Once it got a little lighter I took a picture.

We were up earlier than usual this morning. A young man that we have watch grow up from Attica is ready to leave to serve our country in the US Navy. Today his family was hosting a brunch for him to honor his decision.

We stopped at Tops on the way home and picked up sugar. Once we got home Bonnie got busy making the Quince Jelly. My job would be to process them once done in the hot water bath.

So its raining again tonight and might just turn to snow as it cools down tonight, time will tell. So we had a good Saturday and I think I will sleep well tonight.
It looks like it stayed above freezing all night, no new snow and all the snow has melted. We got ready and headed to church, picking up the girls on the way. Pastor had another good message and its always good to visit with our church family.
We love our food here in Buffalo, especially the brands that are still only available locally. Elizabeth wanted to try getting a sub at Costanzo's. They have arguably the very best rolls in Buffalo. Most places use them for not only their sub rolls but also their Beef on Weck rolls. So we headed in toward the city and found the bakery.

|Wow were the lines long|

Since we were close we headed over to the Apple store, always dangerous. Elizabeth had gotten a screen protector on Friday and when they put it on there was dust under it. So she got them to replace it without a hassle. I looked at the MacBook Pros, comparing the 15in to the 13in. They are nice with the SSD storage but my 4 year old model really is not giving me any problems. I would like a little more RAM but it was easy to walk out without even pricing the new ones.
We came home the back bay and drove by the house I grew up in. The people that own it now have it looking very nice and it is looking good. We dropped the girls off and headed home. Got home just in time to see the Bills run out of time and lose to Kansas City. Then we switched to the NASCAR race to watch Kevin Harvick win, Jeff Gordon miss the cut by one, and Ryan Newman (drives the CAT sponsored Car) move into the fourth spot for the final race for the Championship next week.
Time to get this posted and watch a little TV.
