After a cup of coffee and a nice morning walk in the cool air, I got to work.
While I did not manage to get the eggplant pickled (that is a job for tomorrow), I did manage to bake bread, bake 4 crisps (3 plum and one blue berry), and dehydrate basil, thyme and oregano. I even watered all my plants. Lugging that 4 gallon watering can up and down the stairs numerous times and to the back herb garden is not fun, but could be considered good exercise. No wonder why I am stiff and sore now!
This afternoon I finished the first baby blanket and started the second one. Hopefully this one will move along a bit quicker than the first as I am now used to the pattern.
I also picked more of the mini eggplants and washed all the canning jars in preparation for tomorrows pickling session. The recipe says it will make 6 pint jars so hopefully this is correct.
We had to turn the air conditioning on this afternoon, but we were lucky enough not to need it even earlier considering I had been baking pretty much all morning.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
