The Bag Lady has been very busy this week, what with the garden, the cows, appointments in town, the housework, the garden, working, ranching..... did she mention the garden? The weather has been chilly, and frost has been forecast several nights, so she has been covering things in her garden so they didn't freeze, only to have the temperatures stay just above freezing. Then everything needs to be uncovered again during the day, only to have it threaten to freeze again..... it's been a vicious circle. She hasn't dared NOT cover things, either, because the one night she didn't would absolutely be the one that it actually did freeze!
She has a large box of tomatoes ripening on her counter. She has canned some already, and is hoping that there will be enough ripe either today or tomorrow to make some of her salsa for canning.
What with working and appointments scheduled every day, it seems, she's scarcely had time to sit down at home (and she rarely sits down at work...). She had to take her little truck in to the shop for a recall appointment on the cruise control. She's glad she finally got around to it because now she won't be afraid to use the cruise! Apparently, there was a slight risk that it would burst into flames or something, so she hasn't been using the cruise control (rather than take the time to make the damned appointment, which she thought would take forever, but actually didn't, and she ran into an old friend when she was there, so they had a nice visit!).
She may not be posting much for the next couple of weeks because she is going to be really, really busy
Ida-who? Idaho, that's who. (Anyone out there reading this from Idaho? Look out.... the Bag Lady is a-coming your way!) But before she can leave, she has to deal with more garden produce. There are still beans that need to be picked, and the brussels sprouts that she is so looking forward to, as well as more broccoli and a few zucchini. And that lovely cabbage. (Please, powers-that-be, don't let it have worms.....!!!)
