to summer. This is my last weekend off and it's back to work.
The summer has flown by and I stayed so busy. I can't complain because I feel really good with lots of energy. Last year at this time, I discovered I was anemic, had thyroid issues, and a UTI. I spent most of the summer on the patio reading and napping. Not complaining about that either. It was a great summer.
I canned 22 pints of salsa last week from homegrown tomatoes from my brother's garden. It turned out so good, I am trying to get my hands on some more tomatoes before they quit producing for the summer. I also put 12 quarts of peaches in the freezer from my parent's trees. I also helped my sister put up I don't know how many more.
The basil needs to be harvested again but I am waiting to see if I can get some more tomatoes. I would love to can some spaghetti sauce.
We painted the outside of our home. I worked on it off and on for the entire month of July. Our home is two levels and really, really high. I was able to paint to whole back uing ladders and standing on the roof for part of it. Then I painted what I could on the front using a ladder. We ended up renting a lift to finish up the front and ends of the house.
As you can see from the grass on the concrete, I have also kept up with the mowing. I am amazed at how thick and grass is after push mowing and keeping it mowed frequently.
I have been working in the sewing room; but, on surprises so I cannot post pictures yet.
This top is now a flimsy.
I don't even have a picture of it. I will try to post one soon.
I think tomorrow will be a day of catching up on mowing, reading, sewing. I guess a little of this and a little of that.
Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.
