Nine Years on Wednesday!

Wednesday will be our ninth wedding anniversary!  I really can't believe it has been that long!  Which is probably a really good sign.  And,

we're having a lot of fun.

My back continues to make progress--I even got my first 6-mile walk in yesterday.  It's been at LEAST a year if not several since I could do that.  I do get tired of it after 5 years, but I still had to laugh this week when someone suggested I see a chiropractor.  FIVE YEARS, and really, I'm just struggling along waiting for someone with NOOOOO medical expertise to tell me what I should do.  That does get on my nerves by now. After 5 years, a person with sense would figure out that I'm under the care of specialists by this point.  When DID we become the land of unqualified experts?

The garden took a nose-dive during the last week because it was cold, but it's back in the 80s this week, so I may have a late surge in veggies.  Here's the problem with canning:  when it's cold enough that canning is pretty pleasant, it's too cold for the garden.  When it's warm enough for the garden, having a hot stove going for hours is a bit overwhelming.  But it is worth it.  Or this is the pep-talk I'm giving myself to prepare for salsa!

Happy Anniversary!!! I hope that you have a great day today! xx

Fall! Finally!

Even without extremely hot summers, I've always loved fall.  A little coolness in the air, leaves starting to turn, sweaters coming out-...
