~Has Another Week Past, Already?

 Written by Sue, Wednesday, June 10, 2020~ Wow scorcher today, high 90's, heat index 98🌞😎

Do you like surprise visits, I usually don't as I like to get the house in order,however, last Thursday evening  about 9:30 we received a call from our oldest son asking for the code to the entrance gate, he was at the gate,
Wow we were so surprised, we had not seen him in quite awhile,about two yrs. I asked him why he didn't call to let us know he was coming, his reply was, "because, I knew you would work real hard cleaning the house from top to bottom, and do a lot of cooking." What he didn't know was I had completed that task cleaning  a few weeks ago.πŸ˜‰
What he did ask for was a chocolate pie, done!
 Like me he enjoys coffee in the morning, after a good night's sleep, I made coffee without a coffee pot,(remember my last post)  he asked what kind of coffee maker I was looking for, he had a new one ordered in a flash, it came yesterday.

I am sorry to say he didn't get to enjoy a fresh brew while he was here, but Mr P. and I had a fresh cup this morning, oh so good. We had a very nice visit, did a lot of catching up! When families live so far away sometimes it gets lonely and hard to deal with, especially when one gets older. However dh and I will take whatever precious time we can get. πŸ’— Knowing, and trusting all of them to the Lord!
Dh wanted some pimento cheese, today,... I found a very simple, and delicious recipe from All Recipes, love their recipes.

2 cups shredded sharp , or extra sharp,cheddar cheese, which ever you prefer.
 1 8oz. softened cream cheese,
 1/2 cup mayonnaise,
 1seeded, diced jalapeΓ±o pepper (optional) I used half,
1 4oz. drained pimentos,
1/4 tsp. garlic powder,
1/4 tsp. onion powder,
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper, also optional,
salt and pepper to taste.

 In a mixer bowl with the paddle, mix above ingredients.. until smooth.

Voila', Delicious, my taste tester, loved it, says it was so much better than store bought. Made with loving hands. We also love toasted pimento cheese sandwiches. 

Oh! I have been so busy canning and freezing fruits and vegetable,too, enjoying filling the pantry once again.I have lots of photos. I hope your week is going well. I am also doing a lot of praying for our precious country, and for the people who live here. We are so blessed to live in the USA!
Blessings to everyone.

Psalm 34:8~ Oh taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him.

Written by Sue, Wednesday June 3, 2020   sunny, hot, humid, 90's

So they say... and I proved it true....
Like most folks, coffee is the first thing I look for in the morning, it was beginning to look a little bleak this past week, as my percolator just plain killed over, I tried everything to bring it back, but to no avail. So I put my noodle together, and here is what I came up with! Hmmm works pretty well, not as good but it will have to do until I get my new one.
We have been on semi lockdown, dh and I have only made necessary trips, and now after looters, and rioters completely destroyed a Wal-Mart and other stores at the Mall, and everything closed down, I will be continuing making coffee this way. I like my coffee Hot! so I heat my creamer too!😱

Ahh! Black Gold!

So how is your week going? As usual I am busy canning, food, and busy in the garden. Here are potatoes that were planted March 15, ready for harvesting! When the plants begin to turn yellow and die, the potatoes are ready, we dug them, and I canned them Saturday and finished yesterday.

This is what the bed looked liked when we had finished digging the taters, messy huh! but not for long.

This is what the bed looked like 45 mins. later, see the plants in the walkway, I had plans for them.

These are zinnias, I transplanted  from the walkway, they had volunteered from last seasons, pretty cheap planting  I would say.This is what it looked like, 2 hrs. later, better, right? Tomorrow I will plant more flowers, probably marigolds, I am going to plant flowers to cut.
Here is some more  results of this weeks work. I had 28 quarts, with a few left over to eat fresh! I have now checked potatoes off my list.

I find time in the garden is well spent, I get sunshine, exercise, fresh air, quiet time to talk to my heavenly Father, He always has a listening Ear!, And He cares about what I care about. We are experiencing troublesome times, here is one thing for sure, our heavenly Father knows what is happening, he never sleeps.

Isaiah26:3~ You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed upon You, because he trust in You.
