Although tempertures are cool in the morning, the days have been warming up so nicely.
Had a lovely chat with Quin yesterday before he headed out to catch up with his friends.
I changed my mind about making the tomato sauce as I realized that I had enough ripe tomatoes to make some great salsa. Yay, some spicy salsa is now processed. I am down to three. containers of tomatoes that are in the process of ripening. Soon the canning will be done for awhile.
Did some organizing in my cold storage room. I'm having a bit of difficulty putting together the rotating can storage item that I bought. I think I have it all aligned just right and then start loading it and one of the spaces will be out just slightly. Siggghhh. I have walked away from it for a bit to allow Zen attitude to resurface *grin*
I will greatly enjoy the storage unit once I get it all together properly. Now when I buy case lots of canned goods, I will not have to rearrange the cupboards. I will just put the cans in at the top and the oldest cans will slide forward to be used first. I found a great site for storage containers. https://www.incaseof.ca/store/catego
ry/shelf-reliance---food-rotation/22_70/ . The bonus...they are located here in Alberta. It only took a week for my order to arrive. I ordered the cansolidator series, so that I could add on to it as I go along. I also order a couple of the storage pails with gamma lids. I want to store all my bulk sugar, oats, flour etc in the cold storage room, but because the sump is in that room also, there is moisture in the air. I am hopeful that these pails with the gamma lids will help to keep moisture out of the bulk items.
Although my goal of having the storage room completed by the end of this past week, isn't completely done, I'm very pleased with the progress. I need Garry's help in moving some things and as won't be home until tonight from Saskatchewan, I'm just going with the flow.
A great time of chatting with son.
More processing completed.
Storage room is coming along great. Once I get the cansolidator figured out and set up completely, I can organize the shelves.
Time to read two books this weekend (sitting in the sun on my deck to boot!)
A visit from Shyra and Kyle yesterday.
Several text messages from Garry as he is visiting with his mom. I have to smile at how he has taken to texting things. Something he figured was crazy...why not just call the person! I think he has discovered the convenience of it! lol
Knowing how incredibly blessed I am.
Have a great and wonderful Sunday.
