I canned 9 quarts of beans today. I love canning beans. It's sooooo easy. If I had enough beans, I could can all day long. My Dad always told me,"You eat what you can, what you can't, you can." Smart isn't he. lol
I also picked my first tomato out of the garden. A real tomato, not a cherry tomato. It was the only one. The rest are still very green. But, it won't be long now. This year I am concentrating on tomatoes, particularly tomato juice. We go through tomato juice so fast in the winter. Soups and chili, although, I can drink my weight in tomato juice too.(and that's saying a lot.)
Hubby has had a few bleeps on his job radar lately. I hope something pans out. Although I love him being at home, extra money is nice too. He has been laid off since back in December.(and hasn't done one dirty dish. Go figure.) If he gets this one job, he will be staying out of town for a whole 28 days. But, he will be home for 28 days after that. I'm not sure how I feel about that. I guess we'll just wait and see.
Oh, the other night when I couldn't sleep, well, I couldn't sleep last night either. But I did figure out why I couldn't sleep the night before. I was a human smorgasbord for mosquitoes. I am covered with mosquito bites! Did I say covered, I mean COVERED!!!!!!I stayed up last night scratching. I'm dying here. I believe someone could connect the dots and they would form a masterpiece. If anyone has a suggestion as to how to make these things quit itching, I am all ears. ( well actually I am all mosquito bites. But you get my point.)
