The sweetest alive

Long time since last hello

Where have I been you ask.  Why working in the garden, the yard, and the Hospital.   Mostly in the hospital.  Lots of overtime and some extra shifts.   Have to make ends meet.  When not working an extra shift.  I am canning or freezing the vegetables that are ready.  We are done with the cucumbers, the green beans and now the corn.  The Zucchini cooked in the heat so it is done.   The tomatoes, beets and peppers are just beginning to get ripe.  Really, what is better than a vine ripe, nice rich red tomato?  So in the next few weeks I will make salsa, V-8, spegetti sauce and some whole tomatoes.   Then the canning will be done, fall will be here and I can relax and enjoy some nice weather before winter.  The rain here in Mid Mo seems to never stop.  It stormed yesterday and again this morning.   Rain is good.  Keeps the pastures green,but really the small streams have been flooding all summer, so enough for a week or two.    I have posted two of my works in progress.  The only sewing I have managed this summer.  I am finishing a block of the month called the Queen and her Court.  The pink pieced block is the center block.   I am also working on the primitive applique as a Christmas gift for someone I love.   I always start early on those homemade gifts.    Now I need to get on with the day.  I only have one day off and lots of work to get done.  Stay cool.
