Sooo, I need to get outside pretty soon and water my veggie plants, take Nikita for a walk, might pick a few blackberries to eat and then need to start working up my peaches. I think I will make up a batch of peach brandy, put some in the dehydrator, and perhaps another jam. I am in a homemade jam swap with the farmgirls on MaryJanes so want a couple varities of jams
I finished canning the pineapple yesterday-they always look so pretty in the jars, and I cut up a huge yellow diamond watermelon-those are sooo good with this kind of heat. If I didn't already have some pickled watermelon rind on the shelf, this is the perfect melon to make that with.
They sent my Mom home already; which my brother and I were surprised they did so soon; since she lives alone on a farm. So need to check in and see how she is doing now-she sounded pretty good on the phone yesterday.
I went to a specialist to review my knee yesterday. My family doctor took these excellent xrays-the new machines are amazing-he showed me the arthritis and he thought like I did, I would be good with just another shot to keep the swelling down. However, when I drove in yesterday-someone forgot to make sure this doctor had the films-they wanted to just take another set of xrays-and I said "why? the set that was taken are fine, and why would my insurance pay for them twice" Oh they usually do she says-and I said no, I will reschedule and come in when you get the films-why waste money?? so thats where I am at with that. of course the doctor is going on vacation so won't be back in til august.
It's 76 degrees and humid outside already-so off to do my stuff outdoors-catch ya all later.
Happy Hump Day---anyone making anything homemade??
