Hello sweet blogging friends,
I have been having some busy,
but fun weeks.
The garden is ready and I have
been canning salsa and tomatoes.
A few years ago I discovered that
if I stuck a plastic bag under
the corner of my cutting
board it was easy to sweep
all my waste right in
and eliminate a lot of mess.
Here's the tomatoes, peppers,
onion and garlic all chopped
and ready for a batch of salsa.
Next I made a batch of my first ever
A friend bought some to a pot-luck
and they were so good that I asked
for her recipe.
Now's the fun part . . .
I went camping with Steve's sister
and her husband.
The following photos are from my trip . . .
These are all at Steamboat State Park
This is where we camped.
On my drive home I stopped at the marina
where Steve and I used to moor our sail boat.
I have so many wonderful memories
of those years.
This is a favorite swimming
and kayaking spot that I stopped
at too. There were two ladies around
my age getting ready to go swimming.
I would have joined them,
but it was very hot and I had
the dogs with me.
There is no shade and they
would have had to been leased.
Well, now I'm home safe and sound.
With chores to catch up on.
The grass and weeds never take a vacation :)
Remember to look around you,
and count your many blessing.
Our God is good all the time!
Oh, I celebrated my birthday
while camping and my sister-in-law
made be a marvelous birthday dinner.
Steak, baked potato and salad,
followed by chocolate cake and ice cream.
How sweet is that!!!
Seventy-seven years and good health.
Now that's a blessing for me to count.
