Canning, canning, canning--it's been our life story the past month! But we have been blessed with lots of stuff from our garden this year, so the results are either in glass jars, the freezer or our bellies! :)
Pat has been busy helping me and doing oddball things, but his back is bothering him again. (Glad we don't have turkeys to process this year--since they are so heavy!) I need to mow, but keep putting it off.
I've seen more of Kyle since he quit one job and went back to another--he usually works morning shift. It's some spending money for now for him until he goes to Basics in November. Two of his friends just graduated from Basics (one Marines and one National Guard) so between them and his brother he should get the "low down" of what to expect.
And yes, Jared will be getting married in late October when he is home on leave. Nothing big and fancy, details are in the works! :)
Harvest is going like gangbusters around here--at work we have been extra busy. Soon we will hear the giant dryers hooked up to the grain bins going nonstop. When they finally shut them off, it's oddly quiet!
I can hear combines and tractors and the train going all hours when I'm home. The 'grain train' comes and goes with loaded cars of grain destined for somewhere.
Parts of our area got a frost and freeze the other day--thankfully we didn't. The weather has been cooler, and chilly some mornings and evenings. Many trees are turning golden--so pretty!
