when life gives you tomatoes

make sauce!

that tray of tomatoes (plus about half again that many) made all this

and we decided to do just plain sauce -- added a bit of salt and some lemon juice and put it up that way so we can use it for all kinds of things -- Italian cooking, Greek cooking -- even a batch of homemade tomato soup if that's what sounds good at the time

simple, easy, and beautiful -- not to mention the lovely sound of the jars going "ping!" as the sealed one by one

since I'm feeling so much better -- off the pain meds now that the bad tooth is out -- I got a lot more work done on the bracelet

almost finished!

and the work on the landscape quilt is moving right along too -- just one more small mountain to quilt before I move on to doing the sky -- and I'm pleased with the way it looks too

under the category of "don't pick up 400 stitches around a sweater while on pain meds" -- last night I got to rip the original pick up out and do it over -- wow were those weird looking -- tonight I'll get to actually start in on the ribbed band

time to get moving -- need to mow that front yard

There's nothing quite like that ping of accomplishment.
