How does someone miss huge cucumbers on the vine? I found three this morning that have been there all along. Two that are huge and one that's very big.
This week's accomplishments please me. I have been active which makes me feel one foot isn't in the grave. My lazy week a while back made me wonder about that.
1. Made a cucumber salad from a recipe a friend gave me. The brine is warmed before it's mixed with the cucumbers. This does something nice to the salad. It can be frozen, but I'm thinking I'd like to can it for winter. I can take out the seeds from my huge cucumbers and use the flesh.
2. Picked and froze 4 bags of beans. A number of the beans are still on the vine so they will grow into seeds.
3. Watched a yootoob video about how to save bean seeds.
4. Cleaned away the paperwork on the kitchen counter.
5. Put up lights.
6. Went to a home store and purchased a flag for the front of my house. We can put up a 3x4 flag.
7. Decided on the paint color for a couple accent walls in the living area to complete the last step of completing the cozy feeling in my home.
8. Two loads of laundry.
9. Cleaned the wood floors. Today I need to vacuum the bedroom rug.
10. Went to the grocery store and found peaches on sale as well as strawberries.
11. Took my daughter to pick up her vehicle from the mechanic.
12. Attended a 31 party.
13. Met a neighbor and yakked for an hour and a half. This is a big deal for me because I pretty much stick to myself or family.
14. Watched it rain for three days and three nights. Praying there is enough drainage in my garden so the plants don't die. Still watching.
15. Froze tomatoes from my daughter's garden for sauce in the cold of winter.
What did you do this week? I'd love to hear from you in the comment section.
