It seems like summer barely started and here all of a sudden, everyone else is done with their canning…and I have not even started!

I have accomplished many things this summer already, but different things than other years.
– We went on a trip and a family vacation!

– I have been catching up on my reading and have read over 200 books so far this year. It is not as many as I would have liked, but I am hoping to get to 400 by the end of the year! This one is on my “to be read” pile right now!

– I have been exercising and staying in shape a lot this summer! I did about 50 miles in 4 weeks, which was good for me. My legs feel better and I missed it this week while I was sick! I hope I can get to 200 miles before the end of August!

But for now….I have to go through schoolbooks, I need to clean out the garage. There is boxes of clothing full of dust and spiders, and they are not organized in any way. I need to get rid of them or store them properly so we can use them. There is tubs of shoes and boots, as well as boxes of books to sell or giveaway.
I am so terrified of spiders though, so I refuse to do it! I did come up with a plan. I will empty the tubs out on the lawn, shake them out and that way we can sort them without risking spiders in the house!

Canning….my garden has really not done so well, but I have gotten some cherries, strawberries and couple tomatoes with many more to come, as well as some peppers. My green beans, zucchini, carrots and beets all refused to grow or come up. I have a lone plant here and there…but bad! My cucumbers are consisting of two lone plants. My mint got attacked by a zealous weed eater..

I need to go get stuff for canning salsa, pickles and see what I can find for cheap jam making!

What is your August full of?

    Sounds like you’ve had a great summer. I don’t do much canning, but my family really enjoys my homemade strawberry jam. But it’s just too hot to be canning where we live. I’ll wait until it cools of a bit. ;)
