You earn your money on concrete. Hard work there.Pulled my last early pour on a big concrete job today, that I've been effin with since the spring, feels good to have that sumbitch done. Imma drink 40 eleven beers tonight to celebrate.
I'm gettin too old for this chit
I'm wore out just reading that. I admire your pioneer spirit.Fixed breakfast.
Ran to town to pick up a few groceries (and some red worms so we can go fishing tomorrow).
Shredded a bunch of zucchini & started 12 trays of it drying in the dehydrators.
Picked okra out in the garden. (Hey Barney, the onions are coming up like crazy! Woohoo!!!!!) (Looks like we'll be picking butternut squash this weekend. All but 2 of the vines have died & the squash are just laying there. Not the biggest but they look ripe.)
Pulled the last of the cucumbers plants since they'd stopped producing & were dying back.
Made a big batch of creole okra, corn & tomatoes. Jarred it up & started it in the canner. I know it's delicious - I'm just not sure how well it will can so I'm considering this a test batch. (Not sure the okra will stand up to canning at corn times....)
Drained the latest crock of icicle pickles, boiled the syrup again, and poured it back over them for another day. (Plan is to can them either Saturday afternoon or Sunday but this has to be done every day until then.)
Fixed lunch. Home canned chili with crackers & peanut butter. Yum!
Cleaned up the unholy mess from everything this morning. Zucchini goo could be used as a replacement for super glue. Just sayin'!
Started moving everything from the dorm frig's into the new frig. Including a laundry basket full that we'd stowed down in the basement frig. Will get everything else moved after dinner tonight. It's gonna be soooo nice to have it all in one place again!!!
Scanned some documents for hubby's work & sent them to him.
Watered the plants on the deck.
Opened up all the house windows.
And now I'm kicking back & taking a break for a bit.....
