I was in Target yesterday and couldn’t resist stopping at the book section. I think it’s exciting to look over the shelves and know how much enjoyment is just sitting there waiting for me to read the story.
Every time I have a minute I read comments and write down titles of books. At this moment I have filled 6-1/2 pages, single spaced, of recommended books! Holy Smokes! Connie and I talked about this – we have read many of those on the list but we’re anxious to explore these ” new to us “titles.
Today was the day I finished up the pepper jelly. After much experimenting I ended up getting 3 pints and 18 half pints of near perfect jelly, 6 half pints of jelly that is nearly liquid and 3 pints of jelly, the batch that I boiled into oblivion – jelly that is so hard I can’t get it out of the jar and will have to throw the jar away, too. Haha! So all in all it was a successful canning season and I intended to make enough relish and jelly for two years. Next year I wont have to plant pepper plants or cucumbers. I started canning on August 3 – I was glad to clean up the kitchen and put all the canning equipment away today.
Tonight on PBS at 8 pm is The Great American Read but since it is on at the same time as This Is Us, I’ll have to flip back and forth.
This is something else I did today – I planted a Hoya plant in this metal basket.
As it grows I will use twist ties to attach it to the handle. A philodendron would work good for this, too.
It’s still raining – we’ve had several more inches. It can quit any time.
After I finish cleaning my messy kitchen I’m going to work on my pinwheels. Did any of you start a pinwheel project?
Is anyone looking for a handsome gray and white tuxedo cat? Percy visits too often and causes problems for Colton and JB. He’s also the one who hurt Deano last spring. He needs to be neutered and needs all his shots and since he visits on his schedule, not mine, it’s impossible for me to make a vet appointment for him.
Here are some pictures of this big lover boy!
He deserves a good home which I just can’t give him because of Colton and JB- anybody local interested in this beautiful tuxedo fellow?
