~I'm still making and freezing applesauce like a mad woman. Our tree still has apples on it and I need to get out there and pick more of them.
~The blackberry bushes are producing lots of lovely berries. I have been freezing some, giving some away and eating a bunch of them.
~The tomatoes, squash, beans and cucumbers are going nuts and providing us with lots of fresh produce.
~I'm making lots of quick pickles with the cucumbers.
~I sat down and made a menu based on what we have on hand.
~Butter was on sale at $2.50 a pound. I bought 10 pounds and froze it.
~Winco puts out coupons for when the college students come back for school on things like beef jerky, popcorn, yogurt, chips, poptarts and other items. I made two trips to Winco and used the coupons to stock us up and also gave coupons to our girls to use.
~Jeff and I gave each other haircuts.
~I cooked up two preseasoned porketta roasts. We had some over rice and I froze 3 more meals worth. I still have some in the fridge for Jeff's dinner tonight to use over buns.
~I've been baking bread again.
~Goodwill has been kind to us lately. We found 3 Williams and Sonoma Fall leaf small condiments plates for .99 each, shirts and sweaters, dvd series that I have been on the hunt for, furniture repair pens, fleece fabric in a old bowling print (Jeff wants a robe made out of it), shoes for me for Josh and Lauren's wedding, and a few other items. All of these were either half off, or 20% off.
~We went out to dinner for Jeff's 60th birthday and had a buy 1 get 1 free beer deal and they gave him a free slice of cheesecake.
~I've been hanging out the laundry to dry when I can.
~Rachel bought me lunch on Tuesday.
~We were blessed to spend time with all the grandboys, Rachel, Heather, Chris and Jaysn on Tuesday.
~I continue to watch shows online and also listen to beautiful music online also.
~We stocked up on ziplock type bags from the Dollar Tree. I use them to freeze applesauce in along with fruit and veggies from the garden.
~I was tempted to buy some new Fall decor pieces but realized that I already have lots of things here and do not need anymore. OK, so I did buy those little plates, but they were just so darned cute! I did avoid the wreaths, swags and signs...so that is a positive right? LOL!
~The library has been getting some great books and movies in lately so I have been taking advantage of that.
~Jeff and I have been trying to get out with Caesar and take more walks. Free exercise.
~I sent some frozen homemade applesauce down to Rachel's mother who is recovering from surgery.
~We received some free samples and magazines in the mail.
That is about all I can remember at the moment. One more day of hot weather and then it's more Fall like weather. I can't wait to start decorating this weekend. Be blessed!
