500 spark points on the wheel today!

Monday, August 08, 2011

I think that this is about the third time that I have had the 500 bonus points on the wheel...today I've treated myself to a virtual treadmill! Woo Hoo...walking it is.

It's back to work for me today. I have to wake Garry up in a little bit to drive me as we are down to one vehicle. Will have to do that all this week for sure. I am going to be walking home though. It will take me almost an hour to walk home, but look at the exercise I can get in. Wednesday might be the only day that is if for walking as "rain" is forecasted.

I got all the celery cleaned out of my garden and diced up. Popped 1.5 cup into vacuum seal bags with my food saver and now they are all in the freezer waiting the making of winter soups and stews. I got 14 cups all total done. I will have to plant more next year, but thrilled with my first attempt at growing celery. Hope to make a start on the beets in the garden this week. I made Raspberry (no sugar added) freezer jam yesterday afternoon. Used up all the raspberries that we brought home from Garry's mom's. I got 8 pints. Kaeli is bringing over all of the fresh picked apricots that she brought home from BC and we are going to turn that into jam also. I love the jams that you don't add tons of sugar to. This way I feel better about serving them to my family.

My positives:
Garry sold his car.
Raspberry jam all made as well as all my celery preserved for the winter.
A short work week, as I have Friday and Monday of the following week off.
Apricot jam making this week and beet canning.
My house is slowly becoming organized once again. Things are being moved back into their proper places after the renovations are nearing completion.
Opportunity to walk home from work today. Yay, some exercise to add to my day.
A new day, new opportunities.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.
