So I was just thinking its been a long time since I’ve written a post for everyone, 13 days to be exact! Those past 13 days have been jammed full and I feel like I’ve been running around like a chicken with my head cut off (can I say that? Please don’t be offended (: )! I decided instead of typing out everything I’ve been doing it would be easier to share some pictures. I will tell you though, most of these pictures are of things from the garden, things I’ve canned or am planning to can. Our garden has been blessing us with a ton of wonderful produce and I’m trying to make sure I can prepare as much of it as possible to enjoy this fall/winter and into next spring.
My first jars of pickles!
A bountiful harvest: peppers, pickles, cucumbers, onions and zucchini!
My first batch of bread and butter pickles!
Kyles Favorite: Jalapenos!
1/2 the green beans we picked last night! Headed straight home to can these tonight!
Is anyone else busy preserving their harvest? Whats your favorite thing to can/freeze?

Where has the week gone! While the days at work seemed to drag on this week my evenings at home were busy. I’m glad its Friday, but I’m not really sure where the rest of the week went. For those of you who are friends with me on Facebook, you know that the past three weekends I have traveled north to my parents for showers, weddings, parties, etc… Can I just tell you how excited I am to get to stay home this weekend! All week I’ve really been looking forward to doing some much needed cleaning (CALL ME CRAZY).
During the week my housework is basically dishes when the sink is overflowing and laundry when I have no clean clothes; other than that I prefer to clean on the weekends. However, since I’ve been gone the past three weekends, not much has gotten done around the house – and it shows!
Tonight, K wants to have a date night so we are going to go out for dinner, probably either Texas Roadhouse or Mi Jalepeno; then its off to the drive-in! I had never experienced a drive-in theater until K and I started dating. They are quite enjoyable and if you’ve never been I highly recommend it! Like the grown adults we are, we will be watching Monsters University. Last time we went to the drive in we saw Despicable Me (another child friendly movie).
Tomorrow though, I will begin a thorough (hopefully) cleaning/laundry day. I also plan to make some pickles. This will be a new adventure for me, but according to the Ball Canning website, it should only take 15 minutes to process the jars, and I probably only have enough pickling cucumbers for two jars. I will post some picture/updates!
Have a wonderful & cool night!
