My Goals for this Week 8/17/15- More Canning!

I've been canning salsa already this morning.  Now, before you think I'm wonder woman, I plan on getting out of my housecoat soon and getting dressed!  I wanted to get the canning over early before the heat rushes in.

Jars of Green Beans canned

I've determined this week that canning green beans is harder than all the rest of the vegetables.  The picking, stringing, and then breaking them up, can wear a body out. 

It's always great when you have a helpers though.  My husband, grandson, and daughter all pitched in making the job a lot easier this past week.  We had a lot of fun in the process.

Just a note:  I will  not remember any of this when we crack open our first can of green beans this winter!  


Here is what I accomplished this past week:


Write a book review.

Write another guest post.  I'm working on it now!  

Hang out the laundry as many times as I can. 

Clean the den- Just a little bit more and I'm done!

Clean and organize the pots and pans cupboard.   They all fell out at me this past week!  

Midweek- start picking and canning more green beans. 

Start harvesting cabbage for sauerkraut.  Too early last week.

Earn at least 15 Swagbucks a day.  Since I've been doing this I've earned three $5.00 gift cards!  Many times I earn more than 15.

On back on my diet plan (Trim Healthy Mama).   I'm working on this every day.   I'm not perfect but I keep trying!  

Read the Bible more.
