It's been a busy morning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've been very busy this morning!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My morning started at 4am.............that's the time we get up so Rich can get ready to leave for work by 5am. This morning after Rich left for work I started work on prune plums. I put 4 more trays in the dehydrator. I took the rest of the plums and pureed them for the freezer...........7 pints.

I canned the sauerkraut that I had started 3 weeks ago. It's a wonder we had any to can as Rich and I kept tasting it to see if it was ready. It was the first time I had tried making sauerkraut. It is yummy if I say so myself. I had 3 quarts to can this morning. I want to make more now that this small batch turned out okay.

Next was canning the grape juice I had ran through the juicer the other day. The quarts look so pretty. I will make grape jelly from the juices as we need it.

After all the canning this morning I decided to take a break. Of course even taking a break I like to be busy. So I did a layout to enter in Carla's Quotation Quest on Scrap101. I loved the quote..............."A photograph can be an instant of life captured for eternity that will never cease looking back at you." Brigette Bardot As soon as I saw the quote I knew the photo that I was going to use. It is a photo of Danny, Rich and I. It is the last photo of the three of us taken 9 months before Danny died of ALS. This photo is very precious to me.

I can't believe that I've did so much and it's only a little past Noon.

This afternoon I have plans. I'm going to be making salsa to can. First I have to go to the pharmacy and get a prescription filled. I went yesterday but forgot to get it. While I'm waiting for the prescription I'm going to take some photos of trees around the parking lot. They are so beautiful.

Have a wonderful day and enjoy the beautiful autumn colors that God has provided for us.
