Once a month grocery shopping day means the next couple of days after are quite busy for me. I spend a couple of days putting it all away. There's chores like making of meatloaf muffins in portions to fit my diet.
There's flash freezing of things so I can take out only the amount I need for a recipe instead of thawing out a whole package.
I've started gathering things from discount bins to use this fall in canning season. Hopefully, my little backyard garden will give me enough to be canned.
Speaking of backyard gardens..... look what I got. Aren't they beautiful!
These are a gift from the man who traded the cutting of the trees for two quilts. A blackberry, a raspberry, and a blueberry. All I could say is "oh wow!" when he gave them to me. I've already told him he's done enough to pay for the quilts but he wants me to have my backyard garden. He's doing more than his share in the trade and I'm very thankful he's going a little farther for me. I think he's almost as determined to see a garden in my backyard as I am. (big smile)
Today there's more kitchen work to be done and I want to do a little house cleaning too. Later tonight will be the Thunder Over Louisville fire works show. I won't be going to it but I can watch the planes fly over my house as they buzz the crowds along the river all afternoon. The blue thunder planes are my favorite. They are quite loud while still looking really graceful in the show. Hmm... I like the older planes too. One is a local plane that I see every afternoon. It looks like the Red Baron plane in Snoopy cartoons. It's a red plane so I call it the Red Baron. I wave at him every evening as he flies by.
Ok, my internet connection is acting up so I'll go do something else.
