Busy, Busy, Summertime

It seems to happen every year.  Summer vacation comes and I find myself extremely busy as my dh is off most of the summer.  So I spend less time online.  And more time with actual adult conversation.  This year I seem to be busier than ever.  I have two boys with birthdays this week and as they get older I can find time to do things I just couldn't with young babies.  Like canning all day...

Today my dad and I canned 55 quarts of tomatoes.  My table is a sea of silver and gold canning rings.  It is really neat to see.  Tomorrow will be bread and butter pickles, dill pickles and sweet pickle relish.  Last few weeks it was pitting plums and making jam.

The wedding I made the dress for is over and I just need to get some pictures from a friend so I can post.  Poor girl got sick on her wedding day, don't think she will ever forget it.  She was feeling better by the reception in the evening thankfully.

And since I don't have enough projects already I am starting another one.  LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL!
Found it while looking for a siggy swap which I also joined. 


  1. I went and looked at that are ambitious.

    I can't wait to see the wedding dress, I am sure it was very lovely.

    Isn't it too hot to can?

  2. Beautiful Quilt.
    Like you I'm not online as often when hubby is home bit I'm still as busy.

    Love and hugs Gina xxx
