Written by Sue, Tuesday, August 30, 2011 absolutely beautiful 80's, low humidity.
We are so very thankful for minimal damage from Irene, our thoughts and prayers are with those who were hit so hard.... It breaks my heart to watch the news and see people telling their stories of loss....
We have been cleaning up and trying to get things back to normal.....the only damage to the house was the screen being torn out, we also lost another of our Bradford Pears, and a lot of debris, so insignificant compared to others.. But still thankful!!!!
I feel very sad tonight for what so many are experiencing...., Our lives can change forever in a moment. Please join me in praying for all that are enduring problems, from storms, extreme heat, and drought.
I am so looking forward to fall, as we have had such a hot, dry summer. Our daughter who lives in Texas told me today that her lawn is so dry that it crunches when they walk across it.
Monday I decided it was time to finally finish the garlic, sooooo....
What does this pan of garlic have in common
with these knee high stockings?
This of course.
We will be planting our crop for next year soon, Garlic is very easy to grow, and we use it both in cooking, and for medicinal purposes. One of the best herbs you can grow.
They are now hanging in the pantry waiting for use.
I am so looking forward to fall......
We harvested our gourds when the girls were home,
Papa and Susie, she is our serious one, always honest, and doesn't want to hurt anyones feelings.
This is our little ham, Katie, every family needs one of these, she makes you laugh even when you don't feel like it, and loves a camera.
I washed them,
hand dried and placed on a table for a couple of weeks.
I then paste waxed...next I hand rubbed with a soft cloth... yes! each and every one! ~lol~
"Voila" ready for containers and placed over the house, a first reminder to me of fall's soon coming
