It's Football Time in Tennessee



How did Sept. get here so quickly? One nice (but there are others) thing about Sept. is TN football. Can you tell we live in Knoxville - home of the TN Vols? lol What is funny, is that DH and I were never big football fans, - until we moved here. We laugh and say that your blood turns orange when you move here. This a.m. I woke up early (for a Saturday) and canned 3 quarts of chicken breasts, did laundry and took a load to the dump (convience center to be politically correct) and back home for a quick shower and sat down to watch the game with DH at 12:21 p.m. During the game I ironed DH's shirts and pinned the hems in two baby blankets. After I finish this post, will change clothes for 6 p.m. Mass (DH is doing the music and cantoring). Tomorrow, the family will gather late afternoon for a BBQ at DD#1's. We are all going to bring our own burgers/hot dogs, buns, drinks and something else. We will bring lettuce and brownies.

I used "MiniMe" to can the chicken. It's the All American 910 (holds 4 quarts or 7 pints). It is so handy when I'm canning smaller amounts, and so much easier on my back. But, I still love my AA 925 for the larger loads, eg spaghetti sauce, chilli, soup, broth, etc. I'm finding that when I can meat, it is usually in 4 quart amounts. I have one more batch of tomatoes to can from the garden and I think that will be then end of them. The Romas did beautifully, but the others didn't. The green peppers did much better than last year. We grew 2 zuchini- made great bread. The lettuce did well too. Potatoes only 2 small ones, haven't harvested the sweet potatoes, and the carrots are still very small.

Depending on how tired I am tonight, I may try and work on the two baby blankets. A friend just adopted a baby girl. Then I need to make a baby quilt for a new great-nephew that is due in Oct. I washed the material today, and I think I know that pattern I will use. But, you never know as usually my quilts take on a life of their own.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Our blood here runs 'orange and blue' , Henry is an Auburn fan...and therefore, we are ALL Auburn fans!! However...I try to provide snacks for the game and keep the youngest kids occupied and out of the way so he can watch it in peace. :D
