I finally got in the last of my carrots, beets and turnips. My turnips weren't very great this year..only a couple meals. I used lots of carrots through the the summer and fall, but I washed up 2 large bags and 10 ziplock sandwich bags of mini carrots for snacks. I scrubbed up all the beets and cooked and peeled them all. Then I sliced and ice cream pailful and made fridge beet pickles, then I froze 7 bags of sliced beets and 4 bags of diced and we had beets for supper.
My sister told me a hint for washing carrots..using the washing machine :) use gentle and rinse first if they're really dirty, don't fill too full , then bag up and store in fridge.
I had to go to town again today to mail stuff for hubby's job, then brought hubby coffee in the field.
I did some laundry and did some organizing in the bedroom, sorting clothes , changing out some new lamps. It looks better already, I do want to paint it soon!
Well I should get to bed and be ready for our big, busy weekend..keep on sparkin'
Stay turned for mid-week when I'll do a recap of October's goals..I may have to snoop on other's blogs for some inspiration for November :) I know my November theme will be "Hospitality"
My recumbent bike is in Weyburn for me to pick up Wednesday so I'll be including alot of biking to keep holiday weight gain away...
