Grocery shopping today as I am looking at a bare refrigerator, but not before I butcher the tomatoes in my garden.

Not so sweet

You know what makes a girl crabby? When she moves her 5 gallon bucket of sucanat and finds that she has lost several cups of it on the floor because the bucket has a hole in it. Not really a hole, that sounds like something small and manageable... This was a crack from side to side on the bottom of the bucket.

Menu Monday August 9-15

It has been a busy weekend with hubby and the two oldest gone. I spent a good chunk of Saturday mowing and working outside in the glorious humidity. Exhausted, I fell onto the couch after putting the littles to bed and then sat there in a state of mindlessness until I forced myself to go to bed.
I hate sleeping alone.
Hate it.
Fortunately, there was an incredible storm that woke everyone up at 1:30 and kept us up for an hour talking about it. After that, I wasn't sleeping by myself any more.
I am not sure which is more difficult, not sleeping with my husband, or sleeping with two little boys. We made it through, but are all tired tonight after a full day of being outside and playing with the neighbors while I helped them pickle beans. I came home and canned pickle relish, froze 10 quarts of zucchini and made chocolate zucchini muffins for the freezer. We had those for supper with cheese and pickles... kinda balanced, right? No worries, here is the rest of the week. I think.
