Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It's learning to look past life's imperfections

You Play, You Pay…Catching Up

In my carry-on I took knitting for 2 pr of shorties…..

this is as far as I got….

again no knitting on the plane!

This bit was done on short drives, to much to see to knit much.

I’ve been knitting off and on constantly trying to catch the store up as fall in on the way & I need to stock longies.

Were also catching up on things gone undone while we were gone..

A bushel of corn to be shucked Friday night

Home 110 I spent Saturday canning 24 pints of corn & 12 pints of pickles fresh from the garden

With my new pressure cooker I found on sale. 

I have a OOOOld one that is supposed to be one of the best cookers you can use.  I have no idea where or when I got it but, it needs gaskets, weights & handles…..will take a few months for parts to come in so I was thrilled to find this one on sale. Having 2 will be a bonus to speed canning along!

Mr.. Fix was out on the tractor nearly the entire day mowing ,& weeding.  He spent quite a bit of time in the play area weeding..which had gotten away from us.

Yesterday, she killed my blender.  Poor thing has been put to hard use these past few months and we burned the motor up. Luckily she had a coupon for 15% any purchase at Kohl's & I had $20.00 Kohl's cash…turns out Blenders were on sale…we got 2…one for each of us…. for LESS than the price of one.

It was a busy but productive weekend!

We have a new family living with us…

Home 117I picked this Birdhouse up a few years ago on San Padre Island, Texas when my nephew got married.

I love weird cute outdoor decorations..any ways its hung empty and un used until this year

I like think it was just waiting for the right family

How was your weekend?


  1. Better get busy, looks like you have much to do:)
    I quit canning years ago, I am basicly lazy and if it makes a mess, I try not do it!!
    Glad you had a good and safe trip.

  2. can you post a pickles recipe?

    I want to try them this summer.


Hey! Thanks for stopping in I love hearing from my bloggy friends!
