Canning Continues and other ramblings

I got 5 more pints of tomato soup canned.  It takes most of my day, but that is 5 more meals for two, and so good.

                                           


In between watching and stirring the pot, I have been catching up with laundry, restocking camper ornaments (making the pieces, just have to put them together later), and creating more hair clips.  I'm also creating more embellished paper clips.  I have not booked a fall craft show just yet.  I keep seeing them for October, but I cannot commit with the canning still going on.  I do better in Nov. and Dec.

Rosemary made it out of the dehydrator.  I need to check my pantry to see what else I need dried.

I'm now writing out a winter prep to-do list, but I have to get cracking on the living room.  I have boxes now, so I am ready as soon as the tomatoes are all put up.

What's on the list?  Splitting wood, ordering propane (this time I will make sure it's delivered before the cut off date), pulling the garden,  drying herbs before the weather gets too cold, and a few other to-do's.

It's another foggy morning here, and the last few days we are hearing fox and coyote.  We also saw an eagle fly over the house.  

Disturbing news in our state - the death of 3 million chickens at another egg producing farm died due to bird flu.  I guess I better get that new coop built, so we can focus on a meat bird coop as well.

It was peaches for me. But it got done. Your clips are so cute. I love a good craft show ! Usually late Oct or early November.

I managed to dry Rosemary yesterday, but need to get the oregano and thyme done sometime very soon.

God bless.

Hi Kristina. I have a question.Has Blogger changed their email preferences? I am not receiving emails of your posts anymore in my emails. I am not getting Sandra's from Diary of a Stay At Home Mom anymore either. I was just wondering if something happened.

Tracy, Blogger did away with it. I'm hunting down a widget that I can put on my blog. I hope to find one that will work.
