Done like dinna

The greenhouse is pretty much done for another year.  So to use up the rest of the veggies, I made another batch of pickles...bread and butter this time, and some salsa.  Mmmm.  I used just about all of my mason jars, so I guess my canning is done for another year.

 And because I can't resist, I'm posting a picture of last night's sunset from my front door.  I never get tired of seeing this.

Fall is in the air

What more can you ask for, after getting off work on a late summer's afternoon, than to come home and enjoy a classic novel and a glass of homemade wine, while sitting out in the sun?

 The BIGGEST spider I have ever seen...hanging out on the veranda by my feet. 

 My first batch of pickles for the year.  Disappointed with how they turned out...too salty.  But I'll be making more.  :-)

 I bought myself some fall mums, because they are so beautiful and every girl deserves flowers.

Soon, we will be spending our evenings cuddled under a blanket in front of the fire, instead of in flip flops out on the deck.  I am not ready for summer to be over!
