House cleaning is like stringing beads with no knot at the end of the thread.

What have you done this month?

Wow it is mid-September, what have you done for preparedness this month? Personally with working over 40 hours a week this month I haven't done as much as I would like, but I have done some.

I canned pears, got wood for fires, froze blueberries, planted peas and checked to see how much wheat I have in storage. I also would like to do a complete inventory; plant onions, garlic, beets, lettuce and spinach; get some quilts done; and spray for spiders. Of those three I am not sure what will get done.

The weather has changed dramatically these last two weeks. Sunny and hot to sunny and warm to suddenly cloudy and very cool (almost cold). With that coldness things start coming inside: spiders, ants, yellow jackets and rodents!!!  Yuck! Are you ready?

A heads up, Foley's has some deals on produce, I am not sure how much longer he will be providing for us as this has been a weak season. Sorry I didn't have any deals through my co-op, but the prices weren't very good, and I haven't had time to drive outside of Monroe to I think Sumner or Gold Bar to pick up stuff. I hope we have a warehouse sale again soon.

I am hoping to do a crock pot challenge in October.. I will post more on that later.

Love you all! Have a safe weekend!
