As I mentioned last week, it’s been a busy week around the table! With Family Funday Sunday, and the start of school, working on 4-H records with some of my club members, and just getting used to a new routine we’ve had a lot on our plates! We are having a lot of fun doing it too!
Canning has kicked into high gear. I’ve got delicious food coming from the garden and found some tasty goodies at the market as well! Last Wednesday I decided to put up some corn. You know, do it while I still had cheap labor at home to help! 🙂
I ended up putting up 8 pints of the yummy stuff! Mmmmm…that’s going to be good come winter!
And on Tuesday, I put up some pears I bought at the Farmer’s Market on Saturday! YUMMY! I think if the vendor is there this weekend I will buy more pears from him and put up some spiced pears next week!
Today, I’m working on a canning project very near and dear to my heart: Pickled Watermelon Rinds. There will be a detailed post about this later today, or tomorrow. 😉 Putting up food in these little glass jars just lifts my spirits so!
Sunday we decided to meet for breakfast then go to the 3rd Sunday Market in Bloomington, where we found ourselves some nifty treasures. I’ll be checking a couple of things off my Pinterest to do list. I’m very excited!
The start of the school year has gone smoothly so far. The Boy started at the local Jr. College Monday. He seems to like his classes and the school just fine. The Girl is settling into her Junior year of high school. She’d like to be done with the whole high school thing all together! She seems to think she’s ready to move on.
I am relishing my first day at home alone! Just me and the dog! I love my kids, but this is NICE. VERY nice! I’ve already gotten so much done today, and LOOK! I’m posting!
