so here's the thing.

I've been canning. Because that's what you do in the month of September when you feed your family on as much local produce as humanly possible.

Blanch the tomatoes, let the cool a little, peel, core, rinse, repeat.

Or something like that.

Also? The homeschooling. And that is all I have to say about homeschooling right now. Also? The chickens. And that is all I have to say about chickens right now.

And finally, I have been beaten over the head with messages of forgiveness lately. Not people telling me they forgive me for being a jerk or anything (yes. I am a jerk.), but I am just being bombarded with books and the last few sermons and my kids and....

So yeah.

I'm beat. I'm taking the rest of the week off, to maybe clean my house and can more tomatoes. And also jam. And plums. And whatever else pours into my house.

I'll see you.


  1. Call if you start trying to teach long division to the chickens.

    What the hell did you do that requires such excessive forgiveness? Be more bad and maybe the forgivers will leave you alone.


talk to me, people. because you know i get all giddy when you do.
