The layout itself is free! How cool is that? Plus, all you have to do is "cut and paste" to use the layout.
Well, this past weekend was Nascar time here in east Tennessee. I never go to the races (just like, when I lived in Indianapolis,
never went hardly ever went to the Indianapolis 500. (I think I may have been to two actual "500" races, although I'll admit calling in sick to work on a few occasions to watch the qualifications. I always reported back to work with a tan...)
The one thing I do enjoy about the Bristol races is the flyover that the Air Force does before each major race. Three jets circle over the Speedway (and our house) several times and it is an awesome sight and sound.
The only thing I accomplished today was more peaches canning. Okay, I did get a few other things accomplished, but canning is the only thing that will get noticed. Regular housework is one of those things that nobody notices unless it's NOT done. I knew you'd know what I mean. It and laundry are completely thankless jobs.
I've had a few of you either email me or call me to make sure I'm okay. I think it's awesome that you care enough to check on me! But I've been fine, just knee-deep in canning. Here's a corner of my basement pantry:
And, would you believe, I'm not finished yet?! Next on the agenda: PEARS! Know any good recipes? I tried a recipe last night for peach upside down cake. It didn't have a bad taste but it tasted kinda doughy and reminded me of bread pudding my great-grandma used to make us when we were growing up.
A couple of weeks ago, Hubby and I were complaining to each other that the fruit on our apple trees were looking more like crab apples than Granny Smith. I'm now beginning to think this might be a blessing.
I know this is a short post (for me). Tomorrow morning's plans include a trip to the shop to rearrange, "fluff" and add to our inventory, then on to a hair appointment at 11:00. Tomorrow afternoon should be relatively "free" (we all know that, to a housewife, "free" simply means grocery shopping, cleaning and every day things that have to be done that never make it on a to do list because every day things look silly on a to do list). I'm hoping to squeeze in some blogging time in there.
