after this weekend i have come to terms with my new identity. i am an old home-body. i love being at home. i don’t like to leave. the leaves are colorful. it is so quiet. no traffic. no neighbors. just me and my loves. why would i want to leave?
i am old because of what we do when we are at home. canning. i love it. i just received the “ball complete book of home preserving” and my list for things i want to can has grown by oh about 400 recipes. next summer look out. i have big plans.
on saturday night instead of dressing up and going out to parties, we canned the last of our garden tomatoes. all i have to say is this, “who knew tomatoes had so much water in them?” i sterilized 4 quart jars and 6 pints. this is the amount of tomatoes that i started with. those of you that have canned before know where this is going.
