I hope this finds all of you well!

I'm waiting for some glassware to air dry - delicate stuff I don't want to break. I have a few hours of research ahead of me and then I can relax for the rest of the day! Yay!! It is too hot to do much - I'll probably read and spend time with Palmer until it cools off enough I can check on the cats and Shaggy. I did not get all of the tomatoes done yesterday. The last batch was still cooling at 1 in the morning. I ran out of garlic, too, so I did not make as much sauce as I wanted. It was still a very long day! Tomorrow is a harvest day if the weather is cooler and dry, otherwise I will wait until Thursday. Friday is supposed to be cool, so I might can some more. I need to buy supplies first. The grapes are slowly turning purple - soon I will have to take care of them. The one apple tree is about ready, too. I plan on making applesauce - very versatile in baking and yummy all by itself. There is a pear tree at the end of the road and nobody has picked any of the fruit, so I might pick a bushel or so. It is a gorgeous tree and I hate to see the fruit rot. If I do pick some, I plan on making chutney and some pear sauce. There has been such a bounty this year - makes me think this winter might be rather miserable.

Off to do my research . . . be MERRY!!!

Sounds like you are going to be busy but you will have lots of of yummy stuff to show for it!!!!!

The screen of my digital camera has been smashed, I think it might of been the baby playing with it. I don't know when it happened. Anyway DH ordered a new screen and it came today . He is hoping that he can replace it . I hope that is the only problem with it and it works! Fingers crossed. It was a christmas gift from DH a couple years ago.

I hope you all are having a good day. Back to making dinner and bath time for the children. DH won't be home from work till late.
Hope your DH can fix the camera!

Hopefully once it spends some time out in the freezer it will behave and do what I want it to do!
