A nice surprise this morning as I lay in bed in the early hours waiting for a call from d-in-love saying she was on her way with g-son, today she sent a text saying she was going into work late as she has been training someone to do her job and wouldn't be here until around 8:00.
That extra sleeping time was well spent !!!
As I did get g-son settled in with breakfast and got the chores finished I had breakfast while deciding what I should do first on this "going to be a really busy" day.
I decided to get my baking done so I baked 18 caramel, 5 chocolate and 2 more pound cakes to go with what I baked last night.
I finished around noon and had lunch with g-son.
Rebekah and daughter came over at the same time and we got started on our tomato canning adventures.
We all worked diligently all afternoon while alternately checking on g-son and Evy who played very well together all afternoon.
When the dust was all settled in the kitchen we had made 24 pints and 8 half pints of salsa, 5 quarts of pasta sauce, which by the way left my house smelling like an Italian restaurant,yummmm, and we also saved all the juice from the salsa and sauce and canned 7 quarts of that.
After they both left I had icing to do so I spent the rest of the evening still in the kitchen icing all the caramel and chocolate cakes.
I fell into bed about 12:30 am so I am writing this post Thursday night and back dating it.
I am very thankful that God gives me the energy and health that He does each of these busy days.
God Bless.
