Chili Sauce and Granny Square Jewelry

Friday’s chili sauce marathon yielded eleven and a half pints – the half pint went into the refrigerator to use immediately! We haven’t had Grandma Clark’s chili sauce since Bill’s sister-in-law sent some home with us in 2006. I can’t wait to cook up some burgers tonight (a black bean burger for myself) and see if the sauce tastes as good as I remember.

We had a quiet weekend, laying low, studying, crocheting, and generally trying to stay cool since our evaporative cooling system was not working properly. It seems like this always happens on a long holiday weekend. It was cool and rainy last night, so it is nice a cool inside this morning, but if the sun comes back out and heats it up outside, the system will simply by blowing hot air throughout the house. I sure hope they come fix it soon.

Saturday I made two more Embroidery Floss Granny Square necklace and earrings set and wore one of them Saturday evening when we went out to dinner with friends.

I received several compliments at dinner on my jewelry, with one of the ladies requesting a closer look at the necklace. No comments on my hair, though. Maybe they didn’t notice the cut, with the fantastic jewelry I was wearing!

Excuse the blurriness. I need to set up the tripod and try to take a decent picture, maybe even one with a smile.

Today I have zucchini squash pickles brining (another family recipe) and will process them this afternoon. Other plans are filing some receipts so I can see the top of my desk again, some more website work (more Alabama church school information to update) and more crocheting.
