Catching Up

This post is long overdue, but I will cram in all of the things I have been busy with while neglecting my blog. I am continuing to can all of the deliciousness my garden has produced.. over the past two days I have made salsa with the last of my tomatoes (and all the green ones) as the weather is about to turn cold and wet here in the next few days. I did this with a friend and we put up 44 pints of yummy spicy salsa!

Hubby has been busy fishing and I have really been enjoying accompanying him on these trips.. I love sitting on the shore with a book, jumping up to help him when he reels one in. It it spawning time so he harvested the eggs from the last two catches and cured the roe to make bait (I did not help with this - yuck! but am happy that the eggs were not wasted)

We borrowed my Dad's smoker and smoked a ton of salmon that we will enjoy this holiday season as well as give for gifts. It is a time consuming but relatively easy process.
I felt that the Fall weather meant it was time for a new look... here is the darker and shorter haired me:
In my constant search of ways to keep myself interested in exercise and to spend some quality time with my sister we joined a curling team. I curled as a kid (20 years ago!!!) and we are having a blast playing in a weekly mixed league - suprisingly all that sweeping is a pretty good workout.
I have been LOVING my organic veggie delivery. Here is a glimpse of last weeks bin... fresh delicious local fruits and veggies.. mmmmmmmm

Love the new hair!

I'm impressed with all of your preserving. I've never done canning. It's one of those things I wish I had paid more attention to when my mother did it. Have to try it on my own some day :)

ooooo! love the hair, the curling (also played as a child), the organic veggies (your box looks like mine from today- lol), VERY impressed about the salsa.

(Kind of feel bad after reading this since my remaining tomatoes are freezing on the vine as I type.;P) Nice to see you again. I'll try to be around more!

Wow...all those jars take me back to my mom spending days canning grape jelly and tomatoes. Looks great!
