A Simple Woman's Daybook -August 16, 2010


FOR TODAY Monday August 16, 2010

Outside my window... Cool and grey

I am thinking... About the trip we are planning to take to DC on 8-28 for the "Restoring Honor Rally"

I am thankful for... An abundant harvest and my food pantry shelves filled with jars of wonderful things.

From the kitchen... Baskets of tomatoes to be canned, 8 quarts of roasted tomato garlic soup, a 5 gallon jug (carboy) of blackberry wine fermenting, 4 liters of homemade root beer brewing, left over beef vegetable stew made with garden veggies, a sponge for bread and the smell of coffee.

I am wearing... Shorts, an old tank top and I'm barefoot

I am creating... Labels for my canned goods. ... "Barefoot Gardens"

I am going... Nowhere today! Mom's taxi gets a day off.

I am reading... Winemaking websites and forums, the morning newspaper.

I am hoping... That I will get a chance to go kayaking this week.

I am hearing... Rain, thunder and the hum of the refrigerator. Everyone else is sleeping.

Around the house... Clutter and boxes for my canning supplies.

One of my favorite things... Birch Bark.


A few plans for the rest of the week: preserve more tomatoes, (save seeds of heirlooms), dehydrate large grape tomatoes, make yogurt, collect and freeze windfall apples for spiced apple wine,

Here is picture I am sharing...

Just stopping by from a simple woman's daybook. Sounds like you have been very blessed with gardening this year! Congratulations! We have started one as well although a small one. Hoping to do a larger one next year. :-) Have a great week!
