Well! Hello Dear Friends~

Written by Sue, Wednesday, August 27, 2014      Such a beautiful and pleasant day, temps.80's, Ahh!

Where does one begin again while being so sporadic with keeping her blog updated? I have contemplated this question so much lately, (at one point thought of pushing the delete button), but just couldn't as blogging and blogger friends have become so much a part of my life, so once again I am attempting to journal here in blogland!

This summer, as most summers are on a farm, has been very busy with late to bed and early to rise. Our days begin with devotions, and coffee on the front porch, and always ending in the late evening with another cup of coffee,(decaf) on the back screened in porch( dodging those mosquitoes,) comparing notes of the day's events, and planning the next day's chores.

This summer found a few challenges for me, but as always God is so faithful, he renews my strength from day to day! I have been studying to be certified as a CNA, something I have wanted to do for some time. If I were younger, I would try for the RN degree. ~smile~ Who knows, anything is possible! My mind and spirit are so young, now if my body would get the message maybe we would all be in sync.Ha! Ha! Anyone knowing this lady,(my Mom, mentor) knows this is true.Just look at that smile and those cute socks, she, by example, has always told her children we could be or do anything we wanted to.

When I see DH get the Bush -Hog out and start to clip I know that the fruit and veggie season is drawing to a close, this week as I watched Mr P. mow I had mixed emotions, one was a sigh of relief, glad to take a breather, the other was a little sad as I know my time in the garden,(which I love and enjoy so much) is drawing to a close for this year. However, I still have my herb garden and flower garden so all is not gone, yet. ~smile~

 This is an earlier photo, I haven't had much time to work with the herbs lately, and the garden is a little messy. Grin~

One of the best thing for me is, I will once again be able to blog, I have missed this so much, and Dh husband knows this, he is so sweet, the other morning after closing in prayer, and we were about to get going, he said, "I will be glad when this canning is over so you can get back to blogging, I know you have missed it!" OH, how right he was!

                                                               So what did I do today?
I finished the tomatoes for this season, Whoopee!! I made tomato salsa, and canned tomatoes.This is the best salsa evah! Daughter Susan gave it to me, and everyone knows SA Texas makes the best Salsa, the recipe comes from a dear Hispanic grandmother who operated a restaurant!

I am so thankful the pantry is once again restocked!

                                          Thanks for taking the time to stop by and say hi!
The farmer and his friends
