Sam made it home Friday. He has nothing scheduled for out-of-town. I got a bit of house cleaning (dirty words) done while he was gone. We have a great expanse of tile floors - DON'T DO IT!!! It is hard, cold, and loud. Sam generally walks outside when I get lazy and run the vacuum over it instead of dust mopping. Really...it is loud!
I have been patiently waiting for my crepe myrtles to bloom. They have bloomed all over town...but not at my house...until...aren't they gorgeous? I wanted the old-timey watermelon red CMs.
A few posts ago, I mentioned canning squash pickles with Mama. I think I've posted the recipe not once but twice. Here's the finished product. They are like a bread 'n' butter pickle.
