When it rains it pours....

No rest for the wicked... and any other saying you can think of pretty much fits our life right now.

We leave for vacation this coming Sunday afternoon, by then David will have completed (since last Thursday, Sept. 4th):
3 funerals
Nursing home communion service
1 wedding
4 meetings
3 baptisms
2 weekend services
Catechesis class
starting of Sunday and School and Bible class

Makes my job look easier! I only have to teach the munchkins, cook the meals, clean up afterward, double check my list of what to pack, pack, and finishing canning.

Boy are the tomatoes abundant in garden's and I'm getting many from different people. So far I've canned 18 quarts of spaghetti sauce, 8 pints of pizza sauce, 10 quarts of tomato juice, plus more tomatoes awaiting me, which will go into more salsa. Plus I canned 8 pints of grape jelly from the grapes picked from the neighbor's, who is currently selling (anyone wanna come live by me?). It is a lot of work, but I love having all those jars lining the basement shelves to use all year long.

I better get back to work!

So, where are you vacationing?

I made salsa the other day. I didn't put in jalepeno's. I used a can of Mexican corn for heat, and I also added some black beans. It is SOOOOOO yummy!
