Monday on the Homestead
It is blackberry season here.. so this week we have blackberry pie and blackberry jam on the list.. I am going to try making some of my jam with honey and see how we like that.
Emily, Hannah and I went to Walmart today to pickup a few needed baking supplies. Emily will be baking up some goodies for the county fair. The entries need to be in to the fair by Tuesday or Wednesday. She has a big list of things to make.. we will see how many she is able to do!
I have 2 loads of laundry hanging on the lines right now.. and a third to get out there soon. I had Jacob scrub the tiles in the bathtub.. they were overdue for a good cleaning. Leanne worked some on the kitchen while I was gone.. Sierra helped too.. the house was in nice shape when we got back from Walmart.
Dinner tonight is Chinese chicken and noodles.. quick, easy and tasty.. I was going to make potstickers.. but now it seems hot and I lost my inspiration with the heat of the day!! Maybe it will come back soon enough for dinner!!
I had to order a new Front Page program.. something was wrong with mine.. so I am kind of lost without the ability to update my website! Now I will be patiently waiting for the mail each day and hoping to find it in there.. then I can feel like all is running correctly again after my big reformatting job..
I will be taking pics and posting Emilyâ€™s fair recipes.. and letting you know how she does this week!
Is anyone else ready for fall?? I am and then I am not.. I love summer but then again about now I start thinking about crisp cool fall mornings, a slight nip in the air, the leaves falling off the trees.. the pumpkins ripe and in the stores.. ahhh.. But then again.. I donâ€™t want to rush the fun freedom of summer here.. because fall also brings with it school and school schedules again.. LOL..
