So last night had to finish watermelon pickles. First thing happened was knocked bottle of peroxide off shelf, lid broke, peroxide spilled all over floor. Threw kitchen towels down to sop up mess. Also cleaned towels at same time. Well, maybe not. But peroxide bottle now has pop-off lid and only half bottle left.
Pulled pork out of fridge and knocked glass of water with fresh basil out on floor. Basil not so fresh after that. Took time to clean mess up. Really needed food then. Gettin’ seriously dehydrated too. Felt like Andrew. Slowly dyin’ of dehydration. Didn’t need swimmin’ pool though. Just needed glass of water. Quicker to pull out orange crush. Drank half bottle in one big glug. Well, more like lots of glugs.
Fin’ly got pickles in water bath. Should have been three pints. Got three pints, two half pints, and one pint left over that went in fridge. Put top on canner, sat down, forgot about it. Remembered hour later. Pulled jars out of canner. Already sealed, but okay.
Thought finished making syrup, but had to do somethin’ with watermelon, so put in crockpot today. Had to put honey in to sweeten little bit. Don’t know what time will be ready to put in jars, but have jars. Cold pack pan ready for use when needed. Just hope I’m ready, not asleep.
Had to “cook” pale green jeans last night. Got stains from sauce on sandwich on them. So after got jars out of canner, put peroxide in and added jeans. Soaked all night and have ’em hangin’ on shower rod now. Didn’t wring out, so no wrinkles. Hopin’ boilin’ water shrank ’em. Too big, and too long. Stains gone though. Have more stained clothes need to cook after finish syrup. Guess could just heat water ‘n cook anyway, but more fun after cannin’ somethin’. Wish Don hadn’t called it cookin’ my clothes. Now got in habit too.
Turned heat up today. Just too comfortable under covers to get out of bed. Noon came, decided had to get up. Gettin’ hungry. Had waffle with peach syrup ‘n lots of butter. Good, but ready to eat again. Tonight have to make fritatta. Have fresh veggies for it. Have bacon, have sausage, have eggs. Celery leaves. Want fritatta. Even have good recipes. Prob’ly just make own though.
Couldn’t resist this. Remember when Don called one day while in college. Asked how to hook up VCR. Hooked own up, so called me to ask how to do his. So sad. Tried to walk him thru, but couldn’t, so told him read instructions. Told me he was hoping could skip that part. College kidz! Supposed to be learnin’ that stuff, but calls mom to ask how. Really!!! We paid for that???? Turned out okay though. Just doesn’t like readin’ instructions.
Mike totally different. Didn’t like readin’ anything in school. Now reads instructions about everything. Smart kid.
