Your canning plans sound so good. I love to can, but I hate getting started, at least the prep part! What is in your crockpot? I don't think anyone can beat a crockpot dinner. It is (normally) not messy since you can put the ingredients in one pot and clean up any mess while the dinner cooks. Plus, it makes your house smell so good! If I do any canning, I have to go buy the veggies first, so I don't really save anything. Of course, the taste is a lot better, LOL!

I never had time to catch up on posts yesterday, but I'm hoping to read at least what I missed since yesterday! I did see Brads new camero - looks nice!!! Keep spending Brad!! Keep our economy going! And I think I saw that it's CS's birthday!!! So HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! And I hope you have a great day!!!!

Last night my Mom came over & helped me put up peaches! I saved enough out to make a peach crisp & it's darn tasty! The house smelled soooo good while it was baking!!! Then I picked tomatoes...they are waiting for me tonight! Salsa? Stewed Tomatoes? More juice? Hmmmm - huge decisions!!! Lol! Supper is in the crock pot, so that gives me a little more time for canning! Seems there is always something to do this time of year!!!

Hope you are all having a GREAT day & we'll see ya at the PINES tonight - 1st Brrr night! FUN!!!!

All of us with older kids know exactly what you mean. There is something so special about the first day of school. I loved it as a parent and really loved it as a teacher! Can't wait to see the pics.

FREEDOM from daycare bills!!!! Wooohoooo!!!!!

I have to head to work in a couple hours, not really what I want to do, but I have no choice.

Enjoy the Pines today!!!

That's usually what happens. I get one good night of sleep and then I can't for days afterwards.

So glad that you can still visit with your grandmother. I'll bet it is so fun to talk about "the old days"!

Last night was a good time. Kim and I hung out with my brother and his wife. We played some Xbox Kinect and then visited a local watering hole. It was pretty empty - but after all it was a Tuesday night in a fairly lifeless city. Still, we had a good night. Also, Kim and I accompanied my dad on his daily visit to my 99-year-old grandmother. It was great to see her!

As for today, I think we're just having a barbecue here at my mom's house. It should be delicious! Well, not a whole lot to talk about. Time for some job hunting. Have a great Wednesday, everyone! We're turning that corner toward the weekend!
