Chuck’s Bed

I thought I would show you all Hubby’s latest project.  He has been working on making a bed for Chuck.  It is almost finished.  The headboard and footboard used to be our dining table benches.  When we first made our dining table we made benches to go with it.  Years later I decided I was tired of the benches and wanted chairs.  So he made me chairs.  (He’s so good about things like that!)  Anyway the benches moved up to the building for a while and now they are being remade into a bed.  I like that.

We have been busy with our garden here.  Canning is in full swing.  I love it!!!  Lots of good food being saved for winter time.  Our cucumbers are just about gone.  I thought about planting some more seeds but I don’t think they would have time to do anything.  We have been blessed with lots of cucumbers this year so we have made several batches of pickles.  I put the recipe for the Christmas pickles over into my recipe file under canning if any of you are interested.  We had our first taste of fresh corn this past week.  YUM!  I love fresh garden corn.  When I was younger and it was time to put up the corn, my mom would always cook corn on the cob for breakfast.  She said it put us in the right frame of mind.

We had our annual Sunday School Breakfast this morning.   We usually have it at SmartView Park here on the Blue Ridge Parkway.  For some reason (that I will never understand) the Parkway has decided not to open many of the picnic areas this year.  So we couldn’t have our breakfast there.  The road is still washed out going down to the river so we had our breakfast at the Coon Hunters Club.  Yes, ladies, coon hunting IS a sport here.  We have never participated in it but many people do.  Anyway, we had tons of good food!!  It was a really nice way to start off the service.

Tomorrow, I will be helping Hubby texture a ceiling.  After that we have some tomatoes to can.  I think we will make spaghetti sauce with them. In the meantime, I have a new book from the library, a cup of tea and a green swing that is calling my name.   I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.

Today, we have been busy with school.  We did a batch of apples in the steam juicer.  We got 1 gal and 1 qt. of juice.  We then run the apples through the Roma sauce maker and got enough applesauce to make 3 qts of applebutter.  YUM!  I also made a batch of homemade laundry soap. 

Colors here are at their peak this week.  I hope to get more pictures to share.  We have been having rain but it looks like it will clear up this evening.  Hubby has been busy making a king size bed for Jess and Dave.  I will show you all pictures when he gets it finished.  I think it looks beautiful.  Here he is working on one of the posts for the headboard.  I think I actually managed to get this picture without him knowing it.  He was deep in concentration.

Tonights supper will be baked pork chops with potatoes and carrots, pumpkin pie for dessert.  I guess I better get busy, I think everyone is getting hungry.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
