--Well, I don’t exactly know about feeling better but I’m trying to start the day off on a positive note.
--Jillian kicked our backsides this morning.
Two days in a row.
--Doctor’s appointment this afternoon and then meeting up with some friends in Springfield for dinner.
--Stubbed my big toe on Sarge’s kennel this morning. Took a piece of meat off the end.
--Sarge was after something last night. Iowa thinks coons are coming up because of the corn we have stored under the lean two. I don’t know but Sarge was warding something off. He might be a little wimpy when it comes to throwing a punch but that dog has an intimidating bark.
--I guess I’ll be canning some tomatoes this weekend or making spaghetti sauce.
I couldn’t just leave all those tomatoes on the vines. Picked a huge bag of bell peppers too. I’m giving those to my mom.
--I bought 12 cases of canning jars from this friend of my moms. I actually prefer the older jars. They are much better than the new ones. Have had some trouble with new ones cracking. Probably made in China.
--Drove by my old house yesterday. They took out the shrubs I planted between my house and the neighbor’s house to keep the neighbor’s visitors from parking in the grass. Had to laugh because the new owners of my house had a truck halfway parked in that space, plus a car in the drive. Then they had a big, enclosed trailer parked in the backyard, a tent was set up (probably for the kids) and there was another sporty looking truck in the grass alongside the house.
--I made some really yummy chicken tortilla soup last night. So tasty. Even better with some crushed tortilla chips and grated sharp cheddar.
