Tuesday, lovin life.

     Hub's took the big box of tomatoes I was to can to work yesterday morning, so that saved me a peck of work as my grandmother would say.  I really had a great time yesterday just tooling through my list of housework, with no deadlines or time frame.  No have to be to the studio, have to be to the bank, just whatever I wanted, when I wanted.  Wow is this retirement?

     I was able to get my Aunt's box of fabric sent, and buy a fan for the downstairs bedroom.  I picked up a few odd sundries at the restaurant supply, where I can buy bread making seeds in larger quantities.  I have a whole stack of books to go back to the book seller, but that can wait until this evening.

     My house is really clean and neat as a pin as long as you don't open any drawers or cupboards:) I really need to do a room by room drawer by drawer go through and purge, but I don't wanna.  Maybe after I get home from my sissies.

     Son-in-law came and we had a nice long visit, after it cool down to say 94 (107 was the high yesterday at the house) we went next door and picked apricots. I was able to can 12 quarts and we did not even begin to touch the tree.  I kind of quite canning after the kids got to be teenagers.  We did not eat as much fruit and it got to be so expensive to buy it.  But as it is free, I will process as much as I can.

     I am gong to do some apricot jam and then tonight I will do peaches. When it cools off. There is plenty of sewing to keep me busy. The boxes also need to be watered.  Bills need to be paid.  Hub's gets paid on Thursday and then I can post new totals! Slow and steady on the bills.  I just want to be able to throw large chunks of money at something, that has never worked for me and this is frustratedly slow, however I can see that I am making progress.  

     I need to go find something for dinner, I know there are new potatoes in the fridge and tomatoes and I believe I have some Swedish meatballs in the freezer.

Okay I am off tot the races!

Have a great and productive day.
