Here I am. Today was supposed to be a 'work in the yard' day. Our strawberry patch and perennial beds REALLY need weeded. We were also going to work on the chipping (clearing land to put up our storage sheds..yeah, the ones we bought a year ago). But the chipped matter is great after weeding those areas, they would get another layer of mulch. We had a full day. BUT at around 6 I started to hear the rumbles. By 7AM, it was a torrential downpour. Uhhh, no yard work for us. Soooo I improvised. We headed out to the local orchard and I picked up my peaches for the year. Yup, 1 bushel and 43 pints of peaches later and here I am. While I did the peaches, I also did tomatoes (from the garden)....running them through my food mill and then cooking them down into sauce (7 pints). Green peppers. Yup, did some of those also (freeze them). Zucchini??? Why yes, I do believe I'll do some of those 14 cups of shredded zucchini have been added to my freezer stash. Whew. Busy day.

Lunch today was egg salad sandwiches and a vegetable pasta salad that I found a recipe for. REALLY good recipe. Dinner was a Pesto pizza. YUMMY! That was a new one.....and it was really good!

Who knows what my weight is.....and tomorrow...eii yiii yiii, because I'm working on my SECOND can of diet soda (sodium)
