Isn't that what we all hope we end up being?
Living on the farm may not keep me well preserved,
but it has afforded me the opportunity to make plenty of preserves!
Here is this summer's bounty, preserved for use this winter.
Fear not, I am not yet finished.
This morning I am going out to the garden to pick more tomatoes
and start another large kettle of spaghetti sauce.
Puttanesca sauce to be exact (we love olives)
Everything in the sauce will be home grown,
except for the olives.
Which, believe me, if I could I would grow olives.
They might be my most favorite food of all!
(Did I mention that at one time I could fit 18 in my mouth all at once?)
Don't ask me whatever possessed me to try that!
(Or was it grapes...oh well, same size!)
Oh, and here is the kitchen help....
No, his feet are not that big....it's just the camera angle!
Speaking of buddies,
She has just discovered (after 15 years if life... in her previous home)
the world of toys!
See how she's smiling?
Who would have known that balls can be such fun!
Especially ones that we can keep away from Maddie!
