Another Monday and mom didn't have to go to work--I like Mondays!!
We did our usual morning walk about the ranch, it so nice to see a little green again, that 1/2 inch of rain did wonders. As you can see in the following photos the sun was a glow and there was actually dew on the grass. We haven't had a dewy morning in like forever!! The little hummingbirds have returned to the feeder so I guess mom helping the birds and the bees was all good. Had to include Schatzie today, since we managed 2 laps around the farm she was HOT and decided it was time for a dip in one of the ponds that still has water. Me, I prefer exploring the pond that's dried up!!
Ok, now the story starts getting a little dicey!!
We have two peach trees on the property and both have produce an abundance of juicy peaches, so monday became "preserve the peaches day." Mom was a slicing, dicing, baking, and canning our yummy peaches. Good grief we now have peach jam, frozen peaches, canned peaches,peach crisp and she even managed to save a few for eating. This was mom's first attempt at preserving peaches and I think she's done a pretty good job. The most amazing feat was this was all done while poppy was in the basement with the water turned off redoing some of our very old water pipes!! Yes, you read correctly, mom had no running water! Wow, that's kinda like "Little House on the Prairie" don't ya think?? No need for concern, mom knew ahead of time and had lots of water stored up. At the end of the day we had running water again and a delicious peach crisp and I didn't hear one bad word during the whole process from either one of them.
So my monday was......Peachy, just peachy!!
