Karen, Sounds like a fun day with books and brats for lunch and dinner. I agree about fun events growing til it's huge crowds and not so much fun anymore.

Glenna, We just saw ground squirrels across the street and in our yard again today. I haven't seen an opossum for a long time. So glad your Mom's appliances are working well.

Karen, Sounds like a great sale at the library. I enjoy things like that. I know what you mean about too many people. It kind of spoils what used to be fun things. Or my opinion anyway!

Patty, The chow chow that mom and I made is a pickled vegetable relish that the Amish eat with most meals. Mom heard about it in some of the Amish books she was reading. I like it and she does, too. I put the recipe up in What's cooking in July.
This is a picture I found online. Looks similar to ours.

Jan, You are correct that the southern folks make chow chow too. There are all kinds of recipes for it. Those coons are sure pesky. I get them here every now and then. And oppossums. Both are a big nuisance.

Just stopping back in to say hello. They delivered mom's appliances and both seem to be working well.

I buy my water. My tap water is not safe. In my opinion.? This is our big LAKE FESTIVAL WEEKEND. I use to go to sidewalk sales, watch parade & go to park for music. Too many people attend now so I just watched fireworks from my yard. This morning I went to the library bag sale. Got books & videos, three dollars for big bag. I saw the local grocery had BRATS for a BUCK. I got one for lunch & another for supper. I may go to church in the park tomorow. No service at my church. Hope Nina is enjoying her vacation. Waving to all.

Patty, Your picture made me smile again. No, I don't buy bottled water when good water comes out of the tap. Dumb and persistent raccoons. I wonder if that's what kept setting our patio light off last night. I saw 3 babies crossing the road several blocks away awhile back. That noise sounded like a helicopter landed almost. Bruce wants to go back there to see what's going on. Hurray for hubby bringing you a box of yarn.

Glenna, Wow, some good apple butter and chow chow. When I looked up chow chow it said it's a southern relish kind of thing. Coffee doodle doo to you, too! It's a relief getting new appliances when the old ones haven't been working right. It's like now these will work for some time (used to be decades).

Good morning Jan and Girls,

Patty, I forgot to answer your question about apple butter yesterday. Yes, I made 11 pints the other day. I love it when it is fresh. I had peanut butter, apple butter, and banana sandwich for breakfast yesterday morning.

The sun is shining here today. Supposed to be in the 80's. We are having a gradual warm up and some humidity heading our way.

I am waiting for Lowes to deliver appliances to mom today. They called at 8 am and said they were on the truck and would be delivered between noon and 4 pm. They are supposed to call and let me know when they are closer.

Hope everyone has a good weekend.

Good morning Jan and Girls,
Jan, what a cute picture...and Nine lives café...perfect.
That's funny about sitting with my scarf on and the air conditioner on...lol

It is really humid out today.

The raccoons were up on the back deck trying to get back into the garbage can again during the night.
It was on it's side again, and in the corner. There are bite marks on the part of the bag hanging below the top.

Hubby has used 2 bungee cords, one on each side, and meeting in the center, so they can't get the top off. Stupid raccoons.

Isn't it funny the loud noises we get during the night, and never find out what it was.

Hubby is out checking yard sales.

I am sitting in my chair working on my teal greens bag. I like how it is turning out.

Nothing else happening here.

Glenna, what is chow chow?

Good morning girls,

How is your Saturday going?

I was up at 2 and saw the patio motion light on so opened the window and it was just pouring down rain for a bit. Then I got up at 7 and heard a huge noise on the street behind us. Still haven't figured it out. Some kind of big machinery. We also had a power blip in the night so I had to reset the stove clock and microwave. Strange way to wake up.

Now I have my cup of coffee and I'm ready for anything. How about you?

Glenna, Wow 22 pints of chow chow.

Patty, I'd put the air conditioner on and put on the snowman scarf.

Karen, Glad you're home.

Vicki, I hope all is well over your way this weekend.

Nina is camping.

Jan
