Just a few things

On my mind today...

I am going to be nice to telemarketers. They have such a crap job and I can't imagine that my shortness with them makes their job or day any easier. Their phone calls irritate me but they're just trying to feed their families, right?


We are almost through our second batch of apple butter. And the 19 pounds of strawberries that we turned into jam is gone. Long gone. We are some toast and jam junkies in this house.

I'll be sad when our garden is empty. It's so much fun to take the kids out every day to see what is ready to be picked.

I finally got my sewing groove back. It feels good.

Thank goodness Monday is a holiday - I am so thankful to have a long weekend to look forward to.
I had an abundance of red peppers so I diced/froze some of them and then roasted/canned the rest. YUM.

What's on your mind this lovely Friday afternoon?


  1. Yum is right!

    I had Fall on my mind today too. So when I got my new Martha Stewart Living and saw the recipe for Triple Chocolate Pumpkin Pie...well, I knew it needed to be made. So it was. And it was good! LOL

  2. Gorgeous and inspiring shots, mama!! I love fall, too. It'll be gone before we know it!
