Hello friends, sorry I left everyone hanging. I have been overwhelmed with the little thing we call life and honestly was feeling a bit burned out. So, a little housekeeping to begin with; I have pared down my blog reading list and if you find it I am no longer following you please don’t take it to heart. I needed to remove blogs that don’t hold my personal interest, but you are still on my blog roll for others to find. I was spending so much time trying to read everyone’s blogs that I never had enough time to respond to anyone. I have also become weighed down in my creative process by the need to produce a blog full of pictures every week. Because of this there may be less pictures and less posts overall; I want to create when I feel the urge not because I think I should. Now on to the good stuff!
I have been blessed with a flowing garden so I have been doing lots of canning. There are some that I used a packaged mix for but if you want the recipes for the tart pickles (not labeled) or the pickled banana peppers just leave me a comment.
The Bruschetta in use, very yummy!!!
And I have decided to take part in Kelly at The Year of Less’s August challenge; no more dryer for us.
Like any challenge this one needed some prep work and I am happy to say the clothesline is up:
The liquid fabric softener has been made (check out Discount Queens for the recipe):
And the clothespin holder has been created:
I can’t wait for the decrease in the electric bill (why did I wait for a challenge to make it happen??).
Hope everyone is having a great summer and getting a lot more rain than we are.
Thanks for stopping by!
