an absolutely perfect day comes along. Yesterday was one of those and today is shaping up to be more of the same. The sun is shining which is welcome after a considerable amount of rain earlier in the week. Temps are dropping to the mid-50's at night and staying under 75 degrees during the day. It is a relief after the hot summer days.
I have bags of frozen peas and several pounds of butter thawing to be canned tomorrow. If all goes well, on Monday I hope to cook down several bags of frozen apple slices for applesauce to can.
A few months ago I decided I needed a Mr. Coffee coffeemaker. I had been using this to make coffee.
My Dad gave me that old drip coffee pot years ago when I didn't have a coffee pot. My parents bought it right after they married - 73 years ago. That old pot makes better coffee than the new one does. The new one is now on a shelf. The old one is still producing really good coffee, which is important to someone like me who considers coffee the 'elixor of life.'
And now I believe it is time for a short nap, after which I may sit out on the deck and crochet for awhile. It is just too pretty a day to be indoors. :)
