I have not posted about all the peas. Just by driving around looking for a particular roadside stand, I found PEAS at another stand. DD and I have shelled 4 bushels of peas. We have eaten fresh peas and has her family. I have frozen 41 pints and probably have about 10 or 12 pints ready to bag and freeze. Those of you familiar with the different varieties, these are the Dixie Lee. I am off Tuesday and am still searching for butter beans but will get more peas if I can’t find the beans.

DH and I did quite a bit of yard work at Mother’s house this spring. There is still a lot that needs to be done, maybe we can do more this fall. The roof really needs some serious repair in one spot, but I am having difficulty finding someone to do it, since I need to be there when it is done. I am glad that we do not have to be responsible for fence installation, because that can also be expensive.
I am not a good cook, but the food that I have cooked over the last month has been good. Not only do I think so but apparently DH does also, because we have very few left overs. I know that if one is trying to lose weight, they should only have small servings of the chosen foods. I have found this to be quite difficult of late—think here of fresh corn and fresh peas. If I continue eating too much, I may be forced to try weight loss pills.
Some think that 3 tries and you are out—–usually my third attempt at making an afghan is the pattern that I will finish. I do not do swatches (one day I may learn I need to do this) so I have the trial and error method. My problem is getting the pattern in the right color combination order. Hopefully, next week I can show you in pics what I mean by this.
I went over yesterday to show DD the way it was being done and Prissy saw just the yarn and said ” Is that for me, I want that blanket”.
