A New Form of Exercise
Yep, a new self propelled lawn mower. I decided that since I walk almost every day, I cold mow the lawn at the same time. I mowed for over an hour this morning starting at 7 a.m. I started to go out at 6 am and then realized the neighbors were home and probably wouldn't appreciate that. But, I can't believe how hot it was at that hour. Once again, we seemed to have skipped spring.
What else did I accomplish today? I canned 9 pints of Orange Chicken.
I used this recipe from Creative Canning Blog. Yesterday, I canned 3 pints and tasted one today. I decided it was good, so I tripled the recipe today. I think tomorrow I am going to try some Cranberry Chicken. But I also see a Marsala Chicken that looks pretty good. I still have 10 pounds of chicken breast to put up.
Hopefully, I'll make it back to the sewing room for a little bit tomorrow. Working in the sun wears me out. I don't know how my dad did it for so many years. And at this age. I do believer our parents are way tougher than we are.
Happy snipping, stiching, and quilting. And now canning.
