How can it be Friday already?? This week has flown by. Yesterday was a day of finishing up projects, and using up as much as I could, along with some badly needed house work. It feels sew good to have a few UFO's knocked out from the sewing room and a little less fabric in my stash!!
I will have Kara until Monday. I am thinking maybe she and I can get some baking done, in addition to a few "To Go" meals made up for the freezer. With hubby out of town once again I hate taking the time to cook for one. Freezer meals are the only way to go, fast, easy, and cheap.
Before I meet up with all the DD's and grands for breakfast out this morning I want to dig around in the sewing/scrap room for next weeks projects. I have to start Tyler's BD quilt next week, hope to finish it as well. Maybe pull out an additional UFO or two. I would be sew nice to clean out a few more of those.
It feels odd to have extra time on my hands this summer, I forgot how much time a large garden sucks out of my day. The garden is in such BAD shape I don't expect to have much canning to do this year other than tomato's and hopefully pickles. I need to check on our canned peaches to see if I should can a few more of those. Not being able to weed in the mornings and evenings due to all this rain was making me crazy for awhile but I am at the point where I just gave up. I have been kicking around the idea of starting over with a fall garden. Now I understand why my Grandmother use to "put up" more than we could use each year. You never know if the next years garden will be a BUST!!
