So, on a lighter note ...

Yesterday didn't start off well (as you know if you read my post).  Physical pain begets emotional pain.  That was just old stuff.  Stuff swimming around in my head while I was cleaning the kitchen.  I don't want to learn to play that game.  I'm fairly transparent.  You know where you stand with me!  No games.

I went to bed last night with a migraine and this morning started off with a knot in my lower back!  I guess I just slept wrong.  Hubs says it was all that fun I had with Keller yesterday!  Gramma had a play day yesterday since the daycare was closed for MLK Day.  Yay me!  She's such a joy!

Today (in small increments - as pain allows), I will make an attempt to deal with the cucumbers and jalapenos crowding my counter and fridge.  Sweet Pickle Relish and Cowboy Candy!   Maybe one today and one tomorrow.  I must pace myself so as not to create a disaster - canning or lower back.  It's gonna be a long day!! Everything that was on yesterday's to-do list is on today's!   And, truth be known, most of today's will probably be on tomorrow's!!!   LOL!

Speaking of disaster!  I'm happy to report that apparently my attempt to make apple jelly which in reality became apple syrup was apparently a score!

Oh yeah!  Guess what song was running thru my head this morning?!!

Put your hand in the hand of the man who stilled the waters.
Put your hand in the hand of the man who calmed the sea.
Take a look at yourself and you can look at others differently,
by putting your hand in the hand of the man from Galilee.

My first thought was can I change that to put your foot (pain) in the hand .... !
I'm so glad my God has a sense of humor!

Have a blessed day!


  1. All your canning sounds good. I have the recipe for Cowboy Candy, but have yet to make it. We all love spicy Mexican food, so I am sure we would like it. Hope you get to feeling better.

  2. hope your day has been better than yesterday! and apple jelly/sauce? i'll take it! yum!!!

  3. I do feel much better Marti and Carissa!!! Thank you! Looks like it'll be Thursday before I get around to making Cowboy Candy. Hope to get the cucumbers marinating tonight for my relish. Something else has taken priority to my schedule .... again!! Good thing I'm flexible!
