Well Hi There!
It's late Sunday afternoon. Soon Fletch will light the grill. He is grilling steaks and also cooking potatoes on the grill tonight. I'll make a salad - with Garden Lettuce!!! Hard to believe we are getting lettuce now. Wonderful.
Meanwhile, with all the tomatoes Fletch picked, I decided I needed to make ketchup - the tomatoes would not hold till next weekend when I am back home again. So after breakfast (raspberry pancakes and sausage - yum!!), I got to work chopping. Then things had to simmer for 2+ hours.
Fletch confirmed, by the way, that this particular variety of tomatoes is supposed to be orange. Meanwhile, the results:
Five jars. It was the perfect day to do this as it was in the low 40's when we got up and didn't break out of the 50's all day (yes, another grey, dreary one).
I did manage to finish the first electric rainbow sock on Friday. And start the second one!
The shot is more than a bit washed out - the sock is really much brighter and very fun!! The second one will be traveling with me to Atlanta tomorrow.
Fletch has been busy pruning bushes close to the house (to allow more light in through the windows (it's Fall!!). Every year he tries to find praying mantis egg cases to put in our vegetable garden - we often have contests to see who can guess when the babies will hatch. Today he found one:
Well, I'm packed for Atlanta and ready to go. I have a car picking me up at 8 tomorrow morning to go to the airport. Truthfully, I am a home-body and I will be happy when this week is over. As much as I loved vacation and my Sisters' Weekend, those two trips were too close together and then Hilton Head was thrown in the mix and now Atlanta. Once I am home Thursday I am (I think) finished traveling till the Spring. And that is good with me.
I'll try to catch up on your blogs while I'm out of town, but probably won't comment. Wishing you all the best of weeks!
