End of Another Week

Sunday closes another week of work and the day we usually rest but today we need to finish up a few odd jobs. jWhen I cut up a pear for breakfast we noticed they were ripe even tho they were not yellow and we had to can them right away or lose them so as soon as I finished my letters and Norman finished his chores we canned 6 pints of pears.  Not too many but lots better than last year and each year now it will get better.  After that we went to the garden and picked leeks and a butternut squash for dinner.  Then we got what beans were there so we can can those with the new beans, which we planned to do tomorrow but then we looked at the tomatoes and if we want green tomatoes we had better pick those tomorrow and make the relish so the beans get moved to Tuesday and the tomatoes from Dunlap gets moved to Wednesday.  Somewhere in this whole affair the blueberry need to be picked again but not today we are going to take a rest.  Have a great day.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
