Weekly Doings

Well, it has been a week since I posted. Where has the time gone!

It is hard to believe that the summer is almost over and I will be heading back to work the middle of next week.

I was sick for a day this week, lack of sleep, headache and aching body. I am feeling much better now and more able to face the fact that I am no longer as young as I once was.

On the days that I was feeling great I was busy in the garden. Today I picked a basket of cucumbers. Thank heavens Harvey plans on taking some of these to work with him tomorrow. I made double batches of pickles and relish last year and really do not need to make any this year.

Finished off the two sweaters I was working on to use up my yarn stash. I probably won't get to wear them very much before the cool weather hits, but there is always next year.

I started another one that I would like to get done in the next couple of weeks. A nice bright red one..... wonder if I can wear them as vests this winter.

This upcoming week will see me doing a bit more out in the garden. Carrots need to be harvested and prepared for the winter, potatoes are ready to be dug up, and more herbs need to be dried. Should be a busy week.

Everybody have a wonderful evening. I am off to visit everybody.

God bless.


  1. Jackie,

    Oh, those cucumbers look so good. Mmm! We didn't grow cucumbers because of lack of room and I've been craving them on toasted tomato sandwiches with cheese. Delicious.

    Love the sweaters. I think they would look great worn over a nice blouse.

    Glad you enjoyed the photos of Welland and the ships.

    Have a great week. The boys are getting ready for school now. Brandon will be in high school and is a little nervous. I told him that was normal.


  2. How wonderful to have the summer off to be able to harvest all of your vegetable's. I can't wait to see the red sweater, I'm sure it just a beautiful as the blue and green. You truly have so many gifts Jackie. I hope that your son is doing better.

    God Bless,

  3. I wish I could spend the week with you. I love to dry herbs and put up things for the winter. I think it is the pioneer spirit...m...

  4. There must have been something going around last week because there was one day that I was sick too...had a really bad headache, aching body, lack of sleep,etc, just like you!!

    Our garden has gone nuts in the last couple of days and of course everything has to be ready at the exact same time! lol I need to go in there tomorrow and do a second picking of peas, yellow beans and cukes. There`s also lots of spaghetti squash, as well as zucchini that are ready. We won`t be digging up our potatoes until the end of September or early October.

    Love those two sweaters you knitted, they`re gorgeous!! xoxo

  5. Jackie--you are an amazing woman! You get so much done, and your posts inspire me. I love the colors of the sweaters! I would wear them as vests if I were you. Isn't it sad to think of those nice ripe tomatoes being almost to the end of the season? I only have a few left, too. (Sniff). Enjoy your last few days off! Kindhearted from FL

  6. Jackie .. you are one busy lady! Thank you for the photos of the moonflowers!
