Restful Sunday

This has been a very nice day.  I started the day sewing on my new outfits and got the sticking done before breakfast but I still have not had time to go back and iron them.  After breakfast I wrote the family letters and Norman cleaned the house.  I cleaned the stove top and we both did some dusting before break.  Yesterday I cooked a piece of corned beef and today I made corned beef and cabbage for dinner.  It came out very good and we have enough corn beef left over to have ruben sandwiches for supper.  A wild storm swept in right after dinner so we could not do the dishes so Norman took his nap and I cut out my next outfits and when the storm passed we did the dishes and went to the cellar to clean up some canning we left for today.  I did my last jar of dill pickles and y last jar of pickled banana peppers. Then we canned and processed 6 pints of sauerkraut and put the last two quarts in jars in the refrigerator.  Now we will have some when we go to Florida and if we all like it canned we will put that on the list of canning for next year.  Guess we will have to buy more jars if we do.  Now we will just sit and watch a movie and enjoy  a restful afternoon.  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.
