I try to blog......

But it's been hard lately.....just so busy!
I canned again over the weekend, 6 quarts and 10 pints of tomatoes. Ran out of quart jars and couldn't find any! Johnny boy and I had to break down and go to Wal-hell...over on Brook Rd, which is the worst ever! No jars....so we went to Wal-hell over in Mechanicsville and found only pint size.
On Sunday, Miss Jacquelyn and I made homemade salsa that turned out awesome. We really wanted to can some but didn't have enough tomatoes. I think I'm done canning for this year! I have really enjoyed it...I know, weird but I do like it. And I really like opening that pantry door and seeing my shelves filled with all of the tomatoes, jam and pickles.

we have a lot going on over the next 11 days until we leave for the beach...just a bunch of things I want to get done. I really have a lot of stuff to blog about but right now, just trying to find the time so here's a meme copied from Traci.....until.........
