Saving Summer

I’m a little late to the harvest game this year but I showed up this weekend. BV brought me some cherry tomatoes this week and I honestly think they were the best I ever tasted.  I put them in the dehydrator to make my version of sun dried tomatoes.

Today was my annual canning day with SB, we always have a good time. We canned sauce, tomato basil jam, and eggplant caponata. I still have a 1/2 bushel of plum tomatoes so tomorrow I hope to find the time to can salsa and diced tomatoes. I think I missed my opportunity to can with figs this year…the pear fig jam I made last year was one of my favorites. I won’t pass it up up next year….it’s too good.

Last night I had ML over to try out the foot spa kit from Lemongrass Spa, drink some wine and watch a little Outlander. I knew that if I didn’t invite her over that she would have spent the whole weekend alone. What kind of friend would I be if I let that happen?  The foot spa products are amazing and my feet are still super soft today. I only sipped on a glass of wine….I was still getting over a whopper of a hangover.  I went out with PT and her sister Friday night and I overindulged….I spent all day Saturday paying for it.

During my Saturday morning struggles the girl had on the weirdest show called Stan Against Evil. I mean weird! I said “what the?” most of the show. She put it on again after ML and I finished an Outlander episode, this one was called Werepony. If you are only ever going to watch one episode of this show….this is the one. I can never unsee the werepony.


I spent a lot of time thinking this past week about what I do and why I do it. All of the inner work that this past eclipse season has brought is still tossing and turning in my head. Some of it makes sense and some of it I’m still working on….I’m getting there…slowly but surely.  More changes to follow…..Zia
