I am sitting here this morning working on canning beans from my garden. I am praying and hoping that my first experience will a pressure canner is nothing but wonderful! lol!
But it allows me a moment to be “present”. I just finished paying bills and I am sitting here with the door open and the fragrance of cow is wafting around. Mr. T. would love it right now!! I get to take a moment and enjoy the progress of this summer.
I mean, just the success of the beans alone, it’s pretty remarkable!
I shouldn’t call it a success until I am done canning them, huh?
Anyway. The beans are a result of my first big girl garden.
I pretty stinking proud of it. Bonus, it’s actually producing vegetables.
I feel so confident, I am starting a herb garden by the house today.
I know. It’s awesome.
So, in the spirit of being present….and reminiscing all at the same time…it’s hard to believe how much has occurred in 8 months. The house is coming along. The deck/patio area are almost done in the back. The storm cellar is just waiting for a drain and a new door (once completed, I will give the full recap of that project!) We are redesigning the entrance steps on Wednesday. School starts in 14 short days, so I am in the big push to wrap up the major projects for the summer.
Another perk…I am starting love living out in the open and looking forward to more adventures daily.
Next up….I think I am going to be a Chicken Complex so I can have chickens next spring.
Anyway, it’s just a great, quiet morning. It’s actually a nice temperature…which is glorious without AC in the house. It’s just nice. Peaceful. Whole. Wonderful.
So, I hope you are having just as wonderful of a morning. It’s a great way to start the day!
I am seriously starting to wonder about this pressure canning. It is definitely an exercise in patience.
Peace out peeps.
