Good 46º clear sunny morning. I think we hit 85º yesterday.
A really nice day!

This sent to me by Bill Patterson. He knows I love dogs and this has a gunsmithing bit also... You too will love 'Dog'.

The above picture is "Dog" and this one is Bill and his Chaka:


She is the SWEETEST dog!!! ... and Billy's not so bad either.
Glad you are feeling better big guy! Don't make Jeannie worry like that! Don't make me come up there!

This is the size of the ones born in the spring....


Yesterday I made jalapeño jelly.... Seed the jalapeños (I use a small spoon) and chop them along with bell pepper in the food processor. (Always always wear gloves to do the seeding of the chiles!) Mix up two kinds of vinegars (white and cider) along with sugar and heat to simmer. Add the peppers, bring to simmer for 10 min, bring to rolling boil and add pectin, boil one minute and can. I ended up with 19 half-pints. Thanks Jeannie and Bill for the jalapeños!



I did pick all the tomatoes, red and green ones, off the tomato bush. So, today I'll probably go into town today and get some more wide mouth pints so I can make pickled green tomatoes. I also got some funny and cute beads for Halloween so I'll be making earrings here soon too. Gotta think of things to keep me busy so I don't have to clean the house!!!!


All I know. Nuff said. Happy Thursday! Ciao.
