Good Afternoon!

Good afternoon! Some of you have asked if I am closing my blog or have decided not to post any longer but keep my blog open. They answer to both is NO. Life seems to happen so quickly these days and things come up that require my attention that are far more important. This does not mean that I don't want to blog, I DO. I just need to keep my priorities in order. I know you all understand that.

Things here are busy, and I am thankful for that. Today I am working at a slow pace, catching up on housework and getting ready to make some sweet relish for My Skippy Man. I made a huge batch last year and we just finished the last jar this week.
A friend of ours gave us a bunch of cucumbers the day before yesterday so I will cut some up for salad and the rest to use in the relish.
 Our garden was doing WONDERFUL this year; beautiful plants, gorgeous fruit......and then our chickens, deer, and bear realized what was there and POOF, it was gone.  Oh, well......they need to eat too!  :D

Well, it's time to start chopping all those cucumbers.  Praying you all are having a blessed day filled with lots of LOVE!

Hi there Laura!

Your relish looks wonderful. I also am doing something similar this weekend; I am making plum butter. We have a load of delicious, juicy, red plum on our tree.

I hope you have a peaceful Sunday.

The relish looks delish.

I love your header picture and the over-all look of your blog.
