Drying * Canning * Visiting * Dreaming * All In One Day
Today I picked the mint leaves I grew washed & put them in to dry. The homestead kitchen had mint in the air. So fresh & clean the odor of mint.
I canned carrots tonight & I can hear the flats sounding off & on as I chat with you. The mint is in the small jar. Not much after is had been crushed. But so thankful for what I had in the rock bed to pick.
Last night I finished up a lot of prim cats for the shop keeper. I made a trip to the shop early this morning to leave them & the pumpkins I have been working on along with Millie the stump doll. I thought Millie had sold but she never made her way to a new home. I took some framed stitcheries & a ditty bag also. The shop keeper wants many more cats pumpkins & fall framed stitcheries by the end of the month. Looks like I need more hours in this month. I sure hope all sells fast.
I took a fast drive to the place where the bunny hutch was made before heading back to the homestead today. There was this sweet little shed that would make the perfect potting shed / summer kitchen. A dream I have filed away for now. Inside there is a counter on the one end from wall to wall. Veggie plants & flowers could be started in the spring on it. I loved the double doors on the end. They could be opened while canning on a cook stove cooling the place off. I can imagine all the jars lined up with veggies to cool on that counter during the summer. Of course it would have to be built to match the chicken house bunny hutch & outhouse tool shed. Dreaming on.
A thought to ponder: Without dreams one would be without hope.
Wishing you all a safe & happy holiday.
Blessings Til Next Time!
