Well its about time................

I got off my tush and updated my blog, sometimes life just gets away on you and before you know it days and weeks have gone that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Since the last up date, I've gone to two wedding, a celebration of life and a visit from my cousins, and sister-in-law, not to mention having our daughter home and working more days than I care for. The one main concern is my recovery from my fractured foot, that seems to be slowing me down. I have tried a few times and its not bad but not a 100% my patience is wearing thin!

I won't bore you with all the little projects of late but I am excited to have made a few pickles! Its been years since I have tried making dill pickles, since the last time I tried and ruined many jars but these have turned out delish!

Dill Pickles
Pickles Beets
Veggies from the Bountiful Garden
Spaghetti, zucchini, acorn, all have grown randomly in the garden, not sure where they came from rogue seeds from last year we think or a mix up in the seed packets! The scarlet runner beans are reaching the clouds so its time to pick them and start freezing them.......a hummingbirds dream with all the flowers.
That's my domestic side in the kitchen......then there's my home renovator side that has decided to tackle our kitchen cupboards. When we first moved into this house, I loved the dark cupboards but over the last few years, I've come to realize that the kitchen is too dark as it is and it was time to paint out some of the darkness. Sooooooo....... with a little help from a painter I know........
So now that I've started this endeavor I'm thinking I may go further with them. I like the dark on the bottom half but.......well the verdict is still I will leave them for a bit. Besides my painter is away for a while.
I have so many projects that need my attention, I don't think my brain can function at that magnitude! so I need to prioritize and decide which one is more important and I'm guessing my master bedroom closet is next....before the poles snap in half and everything ends up in a heap on the floor!
So as summer comes to an end in a few weeks, harvesting, putting the beds to sleep, and general clean up is in order.......summer just ends too soon......the smell of autumn is in the air.  Back to school for some and the changing of season and back to scarves and that I'm looking forward too. A DSW visit is coming in the near future! Well gotta run and get this show on the road. I will try to get back here soon. Hope your days are filled with joy and happiness and lots of crafting ideas!
