To celebrate this grand day, my mom and I made some pickles--using my late grandma's recipe. (Actually, we would have made them anyway.) Fall does seem like such a nice season for good smells and spicy things. (We added a lot of spice to our pickles and, later, to our apple cider and both concoctions smell delicious in their own unique way!) We've never made very many pickles before this, as Grandma always made enough to share with us, but since she passed away in April, we decided that, if we want pickles, it's now up to us to make them.
My dad and the boys finished putting the new floor in the small manure spreader this afternoon, (great job, guys!!!) so now they can get the piles of straw and manure cleaned up and out of the way...
Off and on throughout the day, I looked at digital cameras on E-bay, trying to decide which one was the best quality for the money I want to spend. (I severely broke my other camera this Spring and have been missing it very much!) After asking Andrews' advice several times, I finally decided on a silver-colored General Electric digital camera!!! Now I can hardly wait for it to come... :)
Well, it's very much bed-time once again, so I'd best sign off!
May God bless you with safety, joy, and pleasant aromas throughout this new season.~
