A Sunday check in.

Wow!  Has it really been a week since I posted?  It has flown by!
We had the hospital inspection people at work all last week so work was crazier than usual.  Everything went well and at least now we can all relax.
Otherwise, things have been busy.  We finally had rain today.  1.6 inches!  And we most desperately needed it.  We haven't had rain for probably 7+ weeks and everything was so dry.  The garden is already looking better.
Of course, we're thankful for rain while people in Colorado are struggling with flooding.  My sister is safe on high ground.  My ex-sister-in-law (who V and I are still in contact with) got an evacuation notice this afternoon but it was cancelled not long after.  She has been posting lots and lots of photos on facebook. The destruction is amazing.... now they're saying 19,000 homes destroyed or damaged.  I can't even imagine that kind of destruction.   Here's hoping for all the best to all out there.
Yesterday I spent a while canning more tomatoes.  I really think I need to be done.  I've barely got any jars left and I'm out of space on the shelves in the basement.
So, there were tomatoes canned and Danish apple bars baked today.  This is one of my mother's signature dishes but I think I've only made them once before.  They're quite tasty!

Otherwise, nothing much going on here.  Life is flowing on.  

And I know I owe you all a feed sack to tote bag tutorial....

  2. I have gone through so many more jars this year, it's really quite a season. So far I'm not getting too tired of it and will keep on until I run out of steam, ha! And those danish bars do look awesome, I'd love the recipe too :)
