Outside my window... The sun is going down after a *miserably* hot day. The heat index was about 108 this afternoon.
I am thinking... About cutting off the cable. It's getting so expensive and there is really very little worth watching any more. I'm afraid the rest of the family might revolt, though.
I am thankful... That aside from a small issue here and there my household is all pretty healthy and happy.
In the kitchen... I have six pint jars of tomatoes that my husband and I canned this morning. It was our very first time canning anything and I hope we did everything right.
I am wearing... Black shorts, purple tank top, bare feet
I am creating... A wash cloth. Or maybe it's a dish towel. I don't know what it's going to wind up being. It's kind of a trapezoid shape and what I've wound up with as I've practiced my crocheting.
I am going... To spend a few days at the family hunting cabins next week. Not to hunt, just to get out of town for a bit.
I am wondering... How my husband is doing at work. He's a chef and during this heat wave the kitchen he works in gets (in my opinion) dangerously hot.
I am reading... This month's Real Simple Magazine.
I am hoping... That this heatwave breaks soon.
I am looking forward to... Learning to make and can pickles, if I get any cucumbers out of the garden this year.
I am learning... To can tomatoes.
Around the house... In the course of one week I had my vacuum cleaner break and the lower heating element in my oven go out. My husband fixed the oven and I got a new vacuum, so things are in pretty good shape.
I am pondering... Making a pineapple rum cake tomorrow. My birthday was this past weekend and cake didn't sound appealing then...but it sounds awesome now.
A favorite quote for today... 我的媽和她的瘋狂的外甥都 (Pronounced Wuh duh ma huh tah duh fong kwong duh wai shung) Translation: Holy Mother of God and all her wacky nephews.
Just thinking it makes me giggle and the looks I get when I say it out loud are downright hilarious.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Packing up some things to take to the cabin, looking up some campfire recipes, running to the bank and the grocery store.
A peek into my day... (Not my picture, but iced tea is definitely a big part of my day, every day.)
