|I washed the master bedroom windows yesterday.
Inside only, so still a little cloudy.
In anticipation of a long day. I got started with today’s cleaning, yesterday. Although I am not sure if that actually made today seem longer. Helping take almost 40 kids to the children’s museum, is going to wear you out, regardless.
|Tomato, Tomato, Tomatoes!|
After getting home, I had intended to fired up the carpet cleaner and head to the master bedroom. Then I walked through the alley on my way home from the daycare, and right by the garden. My tomato plants were full. I could not, put off picking and processing another day. So I settled the girls, and grabbed the largest bowl I could find. I then proceeded to fill it two times. I added them to the tomatoes that had already been ripening on the counter. I had plenty of work cut out for me.
I blanched and peeled all of the tomatoes, including the cherry tomatoes. Yep, this obsession of getting rid of things, is reaching truly crazy levels. I then used them to make a large batch of Chili and Tomato Basil Soup. I then processed them in the canner based on the ingredient with the longest processing time. I consulted my favorite canning book for times and pressures.
|5 hours of effort in one small image!|
In order to not fall behind, I will clean the carpet tomorrow, in addition to tomorrow’s deep clean.
I am already beating myself up, a little, for not getting to it today, even though I cleaned extra yesterday. ***Hint, Hint, please keep your “fail” comments to yourself. :-)***
