I couldn’t figure out how to put the link for this on the last post. But I know how to do it on here.

Just experimenting with Shabbyblogs.com backgrounds. One of them didn’t work correctly. But my daughter helped me figure it out. I’d really like one that is more fall looking. Better get going, I’ve got a long weekend ahead of me.No computers!

I was hungry tonight. I had coffee in the morning, forgot breakfast. Started making applesauce, then made apple pancakes and ate one with applesauce and whip cream. Then had some Starbucks on my way to San Jose. I arrived dizzy with low blood sugar. There were delicious apricot, ginger sausage and potato and onions. Mmmm…. That seemed to do the trick. I’m fine now.

Monday was nice and I stayed home almost all day except to get printer ink in the morning and maybe Walmart. Tuesday, however, was not so fun. I gathered up all my things to meet with three students during the day and headed for the car. Hmm… the tires look a little too low to be driving in the mountains. Hmm.. this one doesn’t sound so good. But msh gets dressed and checks it out and says take the blue car. The other has a nail in the tire. Well, I’m out in the hills, driving up hill when I have this feeling that the car is going slower and the car is trying harder. I think it felt more like it was in neutral ready to go backwards. I couldn’t find the emergency flasher. Oh, no!! There aren’t lots of cars out there in the morning so I didn’t worry to much about being hit. I quickly found a spot to pull over and located the flashers. Then I checked my cell phone. I knew it, no bars. I was not going to make this appointment. My knowledge of car problems is not very extensive since our Hondas rarely have issues so I wasn’t sure if I should drive it or if that would damage anything. After reviewing the options I decided that it was mostly downhill so I would try and make it to phone service. Hallelujah! Several phone calls later I was on the road heading for the Honda dealer. I am not going to bore you with the rest of the day. Today the car is fixed and mine has nice new tires thanks to James and James my wonderful son and son in law.
These kind of stories are not really allowed on this page but I didn’t have time to make anything this week……..

Let’s see. Today I watched the sweet grandchildren, visited with a friend (who brought me a pretty wool sweater to shrink), made a batch of hummus, a caramel apple cake, and 4 loaves of six grain bread. It would have been seven grain but I couldn’t get soft wheat to grind anywhere (around here). Then I made a bunch of salsa with the tomatoes from the garden.

Still experimenting: This is a link to a tutorial of how to turn bag handles. I haven’t even looked at it yet but thought it could be helpful since I love to make bags.

I would like to can apple sauce and tomato sauce. I'll let you know if that happens.
Now I am watching a movie. I'm sure you've heard of Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus.

Kind of like a journal. Today I started getting the kitchen ready for September. I began by cleaning out under the sink. You might be wondering how I got started on that. I was looking for my red dish soap. I found it along with all kinds of cleaning supplies dating back to 1995 at least. So I had a clean out fest I washed my kitchen windows inside and out. I really like clean windows. I got rid of some of the plants that moved into my window sill while I was too busy to care. I decided on red and yellow for my apple time colors this year.
After working in the kitchen I peeled apples and made an apple blackberry crunch. I substituted apple and blackberries for rhubarb. That reminds me of the rhubarb yogurt we ate in Scotland. I wish we could buy that here.
I also got my wonderful husband to cut two boards for my old picture frames. I painted them with chalkboard paint. They are going to be little chalkboards for my office.
Yesterday I finally cut up one of my shrunk wool sweaters to make a purse. In the car I sewed the handles and sewed the main bag together. If I get time tomorrow I may take pictures for my next blog.
That's all for now!!! Time to go to sleep.

A crocheted apron, a red apron, two old Christmas tablecloths, and two potholders.
Can you find them all?
There's one potholder. Not necessarily for Christmas.
Some pretty silver pieces. Fifteen cents each! The footed bowl was black! The jar was for Rob to make a terrarium in. We saw beautiful terrariums in large jars at the Smith & Hawkins Store but the jars were too expensive. So this was just two dollars.
That's all for now!
