By the way, last night, after all the canning, Hubby and I sat out on the deck in the cool of the evening and were sitting there talking away. No, I was talking away and Hubby was listening, as usual. I'm the talker in the family and all of a sudden I went silent. Two beautiful young deer came up into the yard out of our woods. They were unafraid and were actually playing and running around kicking up their heels like two kids. It was a really cool site . . . then later in the evening I went out to the herb garden to pick basil. I was picking and sniffing and feeling awesome but I kept hearing something and figured it was those doggone squirrels. I looked up and there were the deer toward the back of my herb garden. They saw me and very nonchalantly went down over the hill behind my herb garden. Well, folks, my herb garden has seen better days and there really wasn't that much for them to eat so I had to smile and just kept on picking basil. Sometimes in order to enjoy one thing you have to let the other go. I can spare a few herbs for a sight like that!!
Today will be dedicated to canning and laundry. Another uneventful day here at the ranch. Those days aren't all bad you know. Not everyday can be a day full of wonder and excitement.
I'm finally finished canning the new potatoes and it looks like I'll have about 6 or 7 more quarts of tomato sauce by the end of the day. I'm in the process of cooking it down now.
