Yesterday while more ketchup was reducing on the stove, and in another pot I was heating tomatoes for tomato juice, I took my lunch to the porch. It was kind of my "five minutes" to myself part of the day.
I picked more green and red bell peppers, and wandered around checking the tomatoes. There are more green ones on the larger tomato plants yet.
I noticed another glady bloomed. A few more have yet to show their colors this season. They are late blooming, but I'm not complaining. I love them.
It rained most of the day, but thankfully, there wasn't any thunder and lightning.
I had to put my 5 gallon laundry soap bucket in the kitchen, so I wouldn't forget to make that too. I'm down to the bottom of the bucket. I forgot to tend to that job the day before.
It was a mail day for the kids - 2 boxes to Daughter and a letter to Son. While my ketchup was boil sealing, I had one daughter watch it so I could go mail those items.
When I returned, I started melting unscented goat's milk soap with water to make a 5 gallon bucket of homemade laundry detergent. I am not out of unscented soap, so that must be restocked soon. This bucket will last a long time.
My youngest will soon be wearing her first eye glasses. We found out she really needed them too. We do not have vision coverage on our insurance, so that's a bummer. Her eye problems were the source of most of her headaches, so in about a week she'll be feeling much better.
Last night I did get some crochet time in, and read through a pioneer cookbook. There are a few interesting recipes I may have to try. I just need to find a crock now.
