Alive And Well…But Busy!

I don’t know about you, but one of my pet peeves is having a fellow blogger disappear without a trace!  It’s almost like having your neighbor move in the middle of the night, without leaving a forwarding address!  Lest, you think I’ve disappeared without a trace, I’m dropping in to say I’m alive and doing well.  I’m just very busy these days!

The garden is coming in faster than I can gather and ‘can’ it, so that’s taking up almost all of my time.  I spent a twelve-hour day in the field and kitchen, yesterday!  I put onions, squash, blackberries, and peas in the freezer–plus cooked chicken and dumplings for supper!  Today isn’t shaping up to be a whole lot better, more peas, squash and onions are awaiting my attention as I type!  The good news is–we have lots of good things to eat, praise the Lord!

Please forgive my absence from posting or visiting for the next few days.  Our peas are ready, and the beans and corn will be ready by the end of the week.  Yikes!   I’ll be back on a regular schedule as soon as things slow down a bit with the garden, but if there’s anyway possible, I will try to participate in tomorrow’s ‘Hodgepodge’.  I’ve never missed participating, and I hate to start now!

They say a picture’s worth a thousand words, so here are a couple of pictures to make up for my lack of words…

Have a great day! I’ll be back as soon as I can…  I have lots of things to write about!
