Tired out after a nice long walk around the pond in this hot July weather.
Happy 4th of July!!!
Like most holidays Poppy is working so we won't be doing anything special today. I kind of enjoy watching all the celebrating and fireworks on TV anyway.
Reading the words "sweet land of liberty" this morning reminded me of a funny story. Many years ago my first cousin came home from school and asked, "mama what is liver tea"? "I don't know", she said, "I've never heard of it, why"? "Because", said my cousin, "every morning we have to sing a song about sweet land of liver tea".
Yesterday, I made my one jar of pickles from the cucumbers off my one cucumber vine in the teeny tiny garden...
Actually, the pickles are not in the jar yet. I do not claim to be a pickle maker, but I do like this easy way to make myself a jar of pickles.
Slice and layer in a mixing bowl...cucumber, onion, garlic, and fresh dill.
Bring to a boil...two cups white vinegar, two cups water, one cup sugar, and three tablespoons of salt. Let mixture cool then pour over cucumbers. Cover bowl and put in refrigerator for three days.
Pack in jar(s). Will keep in refrigerator for three weeks.
Need to get busy. While Ann was here, our other neighbors from down the path stopped by for a visit. Good to have nice neighbors!
