Yesterday I had a great day with my friend and her teenage daughter. We chatted, had lunch, and did a little sewing project together.
After they left, I went grocery shopping. I also stopped by a produce stand, and purchased a bushel of tomatoes. (At least, I think it was a bushel. For the most part, no one in California measures produce by bushels, pints, pecks, etc., you buy produce by the pound, so while I learned in fourth grade what each measurement holds, I never had the chance to apply my knowledge, so I didn't retain it. I guess I should learn it over again, since almost every produce stand in this area does use this form of measurement.) So where was I? Oh yes, tomatoes! I bought a lot of tomatoes. ;-) I have tomato plants in my garden, but I have a feeling they aren't doing too well...and when I saw how lovely these tomatoes looked...and the price wasn't too high...I came home with them!
I plan on canning them today. Last year I canned several pints from my garden, and I used them all up early in the winter. So this year I would definitely like to put up more. That's one thing on today's "to do" list.
The other thing (here's where the pins and needles come in!) is sewing! I have a custom sewing job. I'm making two aprons, and out the yummiest, scrummiest fabric. *grin*
I'll be back later on today to post pictures of my progress! Have a great day, whatever your forecast calls for!!!
