Sunday Afternoon

No pictures today. I did pick nectarines and make a batch of jam. I think I prefer the less sugar variety. The sweetest guy I know escorted me to Walmart to get more pectin and sugar at 10:30. I think I will wait til tomorrow to make more jam. Its a little late tonight.
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.

Well, I decided to keep track of fun things I get to do now that I don't have to work so much.
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.
