It is the last night of this hot month of August. It had been 100 plus for weeks and hardly cooled down one single bit. My garden suffered. I lost my squash and zucchini plants and the cucumbers just couldn’t go any further. I did get a decent crop though from all the survivors and will plant all of these in the next week or so for the fall. They will do just fine.
What a wonderful month it has been aside from the sweltering heat. My job kept me busy and I still had lots of play time with my baby. The sewing machine is in use once again and I’ll post photos in the very near future of some of my projects. I love shopping at the fabric store.
I’ve also learned to tat. How I discovered this art was on a blog of one of my favorites, Shelly Tucker. She shared a post several months ago and since that time, I’ve been watching tatting videos on Youtube. Two weeks ago, I went to Hobby Lobby and bought everything I needed for needle tatting.
My pantry is full of all kinds of delicious things I’ve canned over this summer: pickled okra, blacke eyed peas, spicey carrots, bread and butter jalapenos, bread and butter pickles. In the freezer: Peaches, berries, bananas, okra, and more.
September brings a new canvas and fall is just around the corner. My camera goes with me more often now for there is so much to share when its not so darn hot out.
