House Cleaning Day

It took me 5 1/2 hours but the house is clean, the wash is caught up and everything I canned is put up.  Canning all day for 3 days put a big strain on the amount of work I was able to accomplish around the house.  After cleaning I was able to sit out back and enjoy the nice day out.  I sat out back and looked at some cookbooks and gardening books on my Kindle.  I also picked some eggplant that I cooked for supper to go with the BLTs.  I have a couple zucchini that will need picked tomorrow along with some tomatoes and by the end of the week I will have some peppers that need picked.  My fall peas are up and so are my green beans.  The extended forecast looks pretty nice and there is also a chance of rain.  The cooler weather is a welcomed relief after the horribly hot summer.
Later, take care.


  1. Well i need to clean my kitchen after canning my tomatoes, i keep finding tomato drops in places, not sure how they even got there. but it will have to wait until i get done making jam.

  2. Wow, you make me tired reading this. My house needs a good lecan up badly after the time canning also. I've been clearing clutter and stuff to make it easier

    1. The first 2 weeks after I retired in May were spent cleaning every room in my house from top to bottom. I can't handle clutter and when I'm canning things are out of place and I'm so happy to get it back to my normal.
