Sorry for the graininess of the pics! It was starting to get dark and I guess the cell phone camera couldn't focus perfectly for these pics. But I wanted to show that good things do come to those who wait - and I mean 90 to 100+ days. :-)
We pulled close to 20 pounds of tomatoes out of the garden this weekend. Those are Romas in the basket above and they are HUGE! Guess who's going to be making sauce this week?
And the Early Girls were not to be outdone. The majority of these will go into some salsa. J.'s brother thinks it's pretty yummy, so I may see if his wife can come over and I'll show her how we make it. She's never canned before so this would be a fun, easy way to learn how.
In other news...
- J. and I had fun at the local gun range yesterday where we shot a .50 cal rifle and a fully automatic Tommy Gun. Talk about fun! Whoo, boy!
- I heard back from the realtor on the other house and there's finally some movement. It's been 7 weeks since we put in the offer on the short sale and the bank has finally assigned a negotiator and is looking at the offer. Should be interesting to see what happens since the house sold for $105,000 in 2005 and my offer is for $15K.
- I've been busy working on our old RV. We bought a late 80's 27' trailer that was in great shape except the upholstery was ugly with a capital U. We're talking salmon and baby blue paired with faux wood grain cabinets. I should have taken some before pictures but I was in such a hurry to get started that I just jumped right in. We put in new laminate flooring and I'm painting those ugly cabinets a nice off-white. Then it will be time to reupholster the "furniture". I'll take some pics next time I'm out there.
And, finally, I've got a watermelon quandry that I need everyone's advice on. But I need to take a picture of it first, so I'll be back with that tomorrow.
Have a fun Monday!
