Mondays seem to always have me hitting the floor running. Getting the feeding,watering, and care of the animals done so I can catch up on laundry and take care of the veggies that were picked or given to me over the weekend. Today the kitchen was buzzing with tomatoes cooking to be made into sauce later, peaches peeled and readied for canning and a cobbler. There was lots of corn to freeze on the cob and cut off for cream corn. Cucumbers turned into cucumber salad and made into bread and butter pickles. In the midst of this was baking biscuits to make sausage and egg biscuits for William and his work crew. I also cooked beef stew, squash casserole, cauliflower with cheese sauce, creamed corn, tomato and cuke slices, with dinner rolls for lunch. Needless to say supper was leftovers from lunch. Laundry is done and all but one load folded and put away. House is fairly clean until Wednesday when I hope to spend the day cleaning and doing more decluttering. Tomorrow will have me doing something with about 25lbs of onions and cleaning a couple chicken pens and couple rabbit cages. We had a wonderful thunderstorm last night that gave us some much needed rain, The gardens may not dry up afterall. Miss having grand R here to help but know she is happy to be home for her mom's big 40th birthday this weekend. Trying to get a schedule going so I won't be so overwhelmed with all that needs to be done. Today was the first day and the schedule seems to be working. At least I didn't feel like no matter how much I did I was still way behind. I just mark things off my list of things to do for today and move on to the next one. Summers always bring so many extra things needing done that I feel guilty sleeping. Think that is one of the reasons besides the cold and snow is why I love winter so much. I have been catching up on everyones blog but haven't left many comments this time. I have a night each week scheduled to just relax reading blogs and leaving comments so please forgive me for not leaving one more often. As I go about my day I think of my blog neighbors and friends and what they are doing and say a prayer for each one. Thank you for coming back to visit though I have not been posting regular. I now have blogging post time in my schedule so it will be more often! LOL Wishing you a quiet and relaxing night and don't forget..... count those blessings no matter how small!
