I always laugh about that...the doctor preaches, but look in the mirror!!! We could all be a little healthier I think.

I'm sure at least some of them are available. Any of them that were published before 1922 are in the public domain in the U.S. Thanks for mentioning that---I may check them out!

It was really nice. After lunch with my high school friend & her daughter, we went to the lake. 6 neighbors & my hubby rode bicycles with me to a little tavern on the corner for a birthday drink. Then we all went back to our trailer for pizza - then a bonfire. It was a good night.




ENJOY!!!



It's so hard to get back in the swing once you have not done it for awhile. ESPECIALLY that early morning stuff!!! I got out of the swing last winter. I can't let that happen again this year. It's so easy to stay snuggled in bed when it's so cold outside, but too hard to pick it back up again later!!! Good luck!!!



I think so too. Hubby said as of right now it sounds great to him.



Yowzers!!!!! It's steamy out there. I picked 2 bags of tomatoes at lunch. Counldn't stay out there too long!!!

I did try the new Starburst Candy corn today, they taste like Starburst, but they have a candy cornish texture. I hate regular candy corn, but these I can eat.
Glad all is well with JP, too!
I wish I disliked candy corn, I'm having some this very minute!! I saw a sign at a gift shop today that read "It's all about the candy"!!

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!!!
That all sounds wonderful, Meceka.

I hope we have a mild winter this year, but all signs point to no
