getting back to work on the house...

I just finished up in the garden.  Picked some more tomatoes and pulled my royal burgundy beans.  More details on my garden blog.

On my counter are 4 baskets of tomatoes.  Looks like I'll be putting on some sauce today.

We continued working on the kitchen this past weekend.  And I'm happy to report that we now have our fridge installed!

I'm back to painting the 1st floor bathroom.  Over a month ago, I did the first coat of paint... a pretty earthy green color called Willow Tree by Olympic paints.  Never got to the brush work... but now... I'm ready to get it done!

So... I'll sign off now as precious time is passing me by!  Bye for now!

puttering around the kitchen...

It's a beautiful fall day here in northern Wyoming!

I'm just back from walking Missy, our dog, all around town.

I have about an hour and a half before church starts... I'm thinking about getting a beef stew started and some homemade bread!  Don't you just love the fall?

Puttering around the kitchen...

I love puttering around the kitchen, don't you?

I just finished steam juicing some PLUMS that my Mom gave me... and now I'm thinking about making Plum Jelly!

Then I was looking at my basket of tomatoes from the garden.. and decided to go find my food dehydrator that's just fresh out of storage (since 2003!).

What a mess!  My dehydrator was so dirty... well... 7 years of yuck!  So, I took it all apart, and got it all washed up using the same cleaner stuff that  I wash my veggies with!

So now I have my little cherry tomatoes drying away... to be enjoyed in stir fries and soups in the dead of winter!!!!

And then I decided to slice up some of my Viva Italias... and get them dried up too!

And continuing with that line of thought.... why not some apples too?

OK... now to search for my Blue Ball canning book!  I've got to make Plum Jelly!

Something to think about...

Here's something I'm thinking about...

you will keep getting the same results."   Dave Ramsey

Free Gift to my blog readers!

Back in 1997 a friend introduced me to a non-toxic, organic cleaner. She used it to clean her floors, her counters, all over her kitchen... and even to clean her vegetables and fruit!

It is my favorite green cleaner! I use it on just about anything that needs cleaning. It has no odor and doesn't give me headaches when I use it!

Just a few drops cleans up my garden veggies. It's amazing to see all the grit and dirt that comes off my veggies and fruit... even the store bought produce!

Here's a video that I made recently about washing up my veggies.

I want to send you a FREE sample!

I think that you'll love it too!
