A Night at the Lake

I took these photos last July but they’re too beautiful not to share. Our favorite nephew came over and we decided to explore the forest.  We found this lake and had fun wadding in the water and skipping rocks, always on the look out for gators, of course.                  

Picking Muscadine Grapes

It’s August and I have the canning bug. I’ve wanted to can for a long time but considering my old kitchen had a useable counter space of about 30 inches (yep, 30 inches) I literally had no where TO can. Well, those days are gone and I now have a beautiful, spacious kitchen. Yes, we remodeled it and it is 80% complete! Back to canning.
