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.

Just a Moment – 6


A Friday ritual inspired by other blogs. A single photo from this past week…. few no words…. just a moment captured in time. If you feel inspired to share…. leave a link in the comments with your moment.} My thanks to Life with Nin for inspiring {just a moment}.

My trek to the Farmer’s Market yesterday yielded the ingredients for chili sauce along with four squash, two of which have already been consumed!
The chili sauce will be simmering soon!

Flowers, for me, from me!

Because I love flowers!
