We awoke this morning to a wintry mix.

Not a lot going on here this week.  Grace has had a little sore throat and congestion going on this week.  Hubby has been dealing with something going on with his tummy.  Not exactly sure what.  I think a trip to the doctor might help but he thinks for sure (today) that he is doing better.  We’ll see.

Yesterday, Julie and I went to C-burg while Grace and Hubby stayed home.  I was hoping to find a few twin size flat sheets at Goodwill to use as the backing for the quilts I’m working on.  I did find one but I don’t think it will be for Sam’s quilt but hopefully it will work for one of the other ones.  We picked up a few things at Wal-Mart, paid a few bills and came on home.  I’m glad we got all that done yesterday before the storm hit.  We also downloaded sheet music for Julie.  The song is titled Hope’s Song by Rebecca St. James.  She wants to play and sing this song at church for Easter.  She’ll have to work pretty hard on it though as Easter is just around the corner.

Julie and I spotted a few of these colts foot blooming yesterday.  I took this picture from an older post of mine as we did not have the camera with us yesterday.  It is always so exciting when we see these starting to bloom.  They are (to my knowledge) our first wild flowers to bloom in spring.  YEAH!

Well, I guess that’s about it.  I hope you all have a great day and God bless.

 

New Canner and Homemade Deodorant

This is my new canner.  I stopped at a yard sale a few weeks ago and the lady had this canner for sale.  One of the handles was missing so she sold it to me for $5.00.  Yesterday, I stopped at Farmers Supply here in Floyd to see if they could order  new handles.  I had no idea if they could or not as the canner appears to be old.  Well, they could and they only cost me $8.00.  I then went to the extension office and had them calibrate the guage.  It was off 1 and 1/2 pounds so I thought I probably should get a new guage too.  This cost $l8.00.  Amazing.  These parts will be in by Friday.  So for roughly $30.00 I got a new canner.  This one is much taller than my other ones.  It will hold 1/2 gallon jars which I plan to use for our juice that we can.

Then we went on over to Vicki’s and had a great visit.  We ate lunch together and then Vicki and I made homemade deodorant.

We used tea tree oil in the solid deodorant and lavender in the powder.  I really like it.  It smells so fresh and clean.  I am impressed.  I definitely will be making it again.

Today the girls and I are making spaghetti sauce.  This will be our last batch of spaghetti sauce.  I think the rest of the tomatoes will just be used to make tomato juice.  Our tomatoes are doing very well this year.  I think this isthe best ours have done in a long time.

I better go stir the spaghetti sauce as I do not have Mrs. Sally’s good kettle any longer.  I took it back to her Sunday.   Enjoy your day and God bless.
