See that question mark on the Chef's serving tray? If you come around these parts very often you should already have a good idea that I ain't cookin' Sunday Dinner this week. We'll either eat out somewhere or else have a baloney sandwich if we come back here.
What are your plans for Sunday Dinner? Going to Grandma's or eating out? Are you cooking? Just share your plans in the comments.
All together on Friday and Saturday I've canned 16 pints of MY HOMEMADE SALSA, 12 pints of MY HOMEMADE CHOW CHOW and 4 pints of MY HOMEMADE HOT PEPPER JELLY. Click on the bold links for the recipes on MY RECIPE BLOG. I added pictures to the recipes on my recipe blog and I'll post some of them here as well.
care for chow chow or relish, but my friend wants
at least 4 cases, totalling 48 pints of this stuff.This is some of the salsa and hot pepper jelly
that I made. Sorry it's so dark. I've never
pretended to be a good photographer.Here's a little better view of the hot pepper
jelly, but not much. Sorry.
I don't know what's up with Miss Emmy but she's been a pill yesterday and today. She just does not want to sleep like she should during the day. I wouldn't mind if she just stayed awake and in a good mood, but she sleeps a few minutes then her eyelids fly up like window shades and she's cranky. Then she fights sleep and did I mention that she's cranky? All together today she only slept about 2 or 3 hours. That's not nearly enough sleep for a 2 ½ month old baby. Or maybe it's just that it's not nearly enough for a 43 year old Grandma.
So far Emmy is sleeping pretty well at night. She finally went to sleep about midnight Friday night, then woke up at 5 am this morning and by the time I fed her and changed her she was up for about an hour, but she went right back to sleep and slept until almost 10 am Saturday morning.
I'm taking Emmy to church with me Sunday so I hope she's in a much better frame of mind and isn't fussy and whiny all day. I can almost guarantee if Emmy's fussy and whiny, Grandma will be as well.This is a bit of a delicate situation but I have to deal with this. Someone recently gave me the Reflective Blogger award and it has completely slipped my mind who it was. I want to acknowledge the award and I do appreciate it, but as my Mama would say, lately my mind has been like a sieve. Okay, my mind is leaky all the time. All the canning and preserving I've been doing and having Emmy here 12 hours a day through the week and all weekend is not helping my memory at all, I must add.
I didn't want to just let this slide because I really do appreciate the honor and I want to show my appreciation. So, if you're the nice blogger who recently awarded me the Reflective Blogger award, please forgive my forgetfulness and jog my memory. Please?I got the paperwork on Friday for my court appointment for my Disability hearing. I have to go August 15th to Jonesboro, Arkansas to court for a personal interview before a judge to determine whether I will get my disability or not. Thank the Lord that Jonesboro is only 5 miles away. There was a possibility that the interview could have been almost anywhere in the state so it's a blessing that it will be so close and convenient for me.
Now I have a request for those of you who are prayer warriors. I most humbly request and covet your prayers for me for this disability hearing. I have been trying to get my disability for over 2 years and have been without any kind of insurance or health care for the entire time. Please pray that I will present my case in the best light possible and that if it's God's will, my disability will be approved. I don't know anything about the judge who will be presiding over my case. Please pray that he will be open minded and compassionate towards me. If he denies my claim I will have to start over from scratch and it's already taken me over 2 years to get this far with my claim.
To all of you who will commit to praying for me in this matter - Thank You and God Bless You all in advance. Diane is tard now, and I'm going to post this and study my Sunday School lessons, then try to get some rest if Emmy will let me.
