Green beans are blanched and are ready to be bagged. Up next are peaches . I was going to can peach chutney, but it is way too humid to do the boiling water bath, not to mention boiling the jars for 10 minutes before filling. Oh, how I would love a screened in outdoor canning kitchen (and while I am wishing, a small walk-in freezer!)!

I'm jealous, I have had so little time to spend here and all this talk of how many post people are making has me feeling kind of sad and left out
I am glad to do some quick read thoughs and see that everyone is well and some have returned which is totally awesome!
Now I am off to bed because I have a early day tomorrow.

Yeah I read about the Superbowl being at the Meadowlands in Jersey on Feb 2nd possibly being snowed out! From what I gather they said Feb Would be especially snowy,BUT I did not see anywhere when it would start. I am so hoping it starts in November or at least December...Last year we had such a back loaded winter as snow did not start really until Feb but lasted until April even in the southeast ski resorts...Can't wait!!!!!

We are all doing great so far! We love it here and have met so many wonderful people in our Subdivision especially. Brandi is adjusting to being a stay at home mom so far she plans to go back maybe next school year but at the latest when the boys go to school. Thanks for asking!

Not yet! I had planned on watching yesterday, but I was exhausted from being outside for much of the day... I don't know if I am going to wait until September 25th or watch one of them before hand. We shall see!

I love it when it snows for the first time in December - big fluffy flakes that melt before they hit the ground. Christmas shopping snow! Then on Christmas Eve, the snow that sticks around is perfect.
It sounds like Utah is everything you have been wishing for weather-wise - yay! I'm glad that you and your family are doing great and making friends - awesome!!!

I forgot to say that I also had blackberries for the fruit salad. They were ginormous and sweet!!! Hubby decided to have some potato salad with dinner and will have the fruit salad as dessert later this evening.

Anyhow I hope everyone is doing good. I know I have a lot to catch up on here so I will get busy! Have a great night I will be popping in and out the rest of the night!
The radio show hosts I was listening to this morning were complaining about that forecast.

We are worried about the little one, he is a control freak and doesn't take to change well.

It suddenly got very warm in here. I need to get off line and get some work done. A little Christmas music will be just the ticket to get me motivated again!

MERRY dreams!!!
