Last night I finished canning the vegetable soup and ended up with 12 quarts of soup. I also canned more beans and set the them out of the canner - finally - at 10:20 p.m. last night too. I was never-so-glad than to have that job accomplished! It's another one of those jobs that's not hard-just so doggone time consuming. I don't care though, in time, I'll reap the benefits of yesterday.
Well, folks, I'm as tired as if I had worked all day. Of course, I actually did work! It was just happy work! I haven't even made it outside to the herb garden yet. I had so many herbs sitting on my drying racks ready to be stripped and put into jars I've been at that almost all day. The nice thing about stripping herbs down is you get a feel and a scent from each of them and for me - it puts me in the mood to make teas. So when I came up with a huge batch of lemon balm I started putting a couple new blends together. One tea was for headaches and one was a nice floral tea. It's been such a fun day, though I'm not nearly finished yet.
Have a nice Sunday and I'll talk to you all again on Monday. Bye!!!
