A Waning Gibbous Moon

  Now that I have put this picture up, I think I may have already used it recently, but for the life of me, I can't remember.  It's the most beautiful jalapeno jelly I have made yet. Happy as a clam with this stuff, and I will NEVER use another recipe.  lol  I hope to put up some sweet red pepper jelly as well, and today found a recipe for tomato preserves.  I can remember eating tomato preserves at my granny's house  a hundred years ago...it is a delight. It uses a LOT of sugar, lemon slices and cinnamon and ginger.  Very excited about trying it out.

   Slept in until 9 AM this morning...guess I was tired. lol  I was having some really crazy dreams too...about my ex-husband and people from my life all mixed up in a wrong time, wrong place kind of way. It was all so confusing that I kept trying to wake myself up, but would immediately fall back to sleep and resume the dream.  lol   It wasn't exactly a drinking dream, but there was lots of drinking going on around me. I was [apparently] curious, but not thirsty.  lol

Had an interesting day with MissB...she was frantic about one of her cats, and stood at the sink after searching for it for half an hour, and almost cried. She said she knew people thought she was crazy, I said, no one thinks you're crazy, sweetheart...and she said, I just love these damn animals and I worry about them, I can't have any thing happen to them, they're all I have... I said, you know I understand...and then I told her a story about one of my cats who goes missing on a regular basis, and every single time I worry myself into madness about it. And every single time, the little monkey shows up at the last minute and jumps into my arms.  About that time, I went to the front door one more time, and sure enough, the little cat came strolling out from under the hedge, pretty as you please.   We had a good day today, and I even managed to get some housework done while she was outside (she won't let anyone do anything...if you ask if you can, she will say NO) so the floors got cleaned a bit and the dishwasher got emptied.  When it was almost time for me to go, we went out front and sat on the porch. We can do that now, as the weather here has finally cooled down to some normal temperatures.


  I have sleeping dogs at my feet and the house is quiet. I'm going to head to bed soon as I have a lunch date with a friend in town from North Carolina, way too early in the day. It's been a good day, and I have nothing to complain about.  LOL

  The moon is fabulous tonight...even more fabulous last night.  I love the full moon....


  Sweet dreams to all....


Namaste.

(yawn) Well, it's the next morning and I'm awaking (it's 5:48 am here on the west coast). I hope you had a great morning and I too had weird dreams.

Wish I could taste some of the jalapeno jelly. I love that stuff when it's got just the right bite to it!

Good morning to you, too!

I've never had jalapeno jelly, How do you use it or eat it? On toast or as a sauce?

I too love the moon and stare at it all the time and each time I get with it..it calms me like the sea.

That jelly looks amazing and I think I am going to need you to send me a jar of it...wink wink!!!

Sounds like a good day at work and a good day at home and the jelly does look magnificent.

xo love

Linda...the jelly is good on peanut butter and toast or bagels and on bagel and cream cheese. It's a little too spicy to just eat by itself...but very tasty.

Gabs=-=-Send me your address and I'll whip a jar or two your way...I know what you mean about the moon, sistah....
