My hectic life gets in the way of my blog! I am winding up the summer, as I leave on a trip tomorrow, and have less than a week until we start school once I return. I have accomplished a lot of cleaning and decluttering this summer, but there is always more waiting. We have to finish clearing the back room in the basement upon my return, because James and Elijah are going to have at home MMA lessons starting in September. I sold the large items, including the pool table, but there are still countless small items to be relocated to other places.
I have also done quite a bit of school prep, but I still see a few late nights before we can begin the new year. We had a Classical Conversation meeting a few nights ago here where we presented how we do CC at home, it made me want to change around the way I do a few subjects.
Socks, our CVS kitty, went to her new home yesterday; we are happy she has a family with kids for lots of attention.
I also did a pepper canning session on Saturday. These are banana peppers -
And even more jalapeno peppers -
It appears that we will have to buy a batch of tomatoes at the farmer's market if we decide to cram in a hot salsa batch before school, because the guineas aren't leaving me enough to use. (Pretty sure the white guinea flock is up for sale...) The grey flock is annoying in the barn but they don't get in the garden.
I will post from my vacation destination tomorrow -
