Progress...

I know you are all probably getting bored of my posts lately, but I thought since you've all been so encouraging, I'd let you know what I've accomplished. I've got one of three walls painted, the whole main floor cleaned and Janice came to take pictures so that she could list our house tonight. I washed the pillars down in the front of our house, washed the walls in the main bathroom, cleaned all the main floor windows, vacuumed the whole house (except the basement...hoping to do that yet before bed), went to a preschool meeting and had our meeting with the bank.

On that note. It's all good. We've been approved for everything, got a good long mortgage term (since it's a flip house we figured we'd stretch it as long as possible so that we'd have a nice smallish mortgage...is there such a thing?), and as soon as our house is sold we'll be ready to go. Yeah!!! That is a huge relief! Now I'm just sitting and waiting for mud to dry so that I can paint the other two walls. Looks like it's going to be another late night : )

Oh, I forgot to mention all the wonderful salsa and apple pie filling my mom and I made yesterday. Oh yes, I found time to can with mom. We made 21 jars of salsa for us and 5 batches of apple pie filling from the absolutely gorgeous apples I picked off their tree. I even climbed a tree (which I haven't done in years and years!). I got 3 four gallon pails of apples. One pail makes 2 1/2 batches. We didn't have time to make all 3 pails so I gave one pail full to Tara. We will be eating lots of apple pie and apple crisp this winter and probably into next winter : )

I think my stomach just growled while I was reading your post!

Congrats on the loan!
I was wondering if you would be able to give me a quick, online tutorial on how to can apple pie filling and salsa, and the likes. I have tons of fresh produce and have no idea what to do with it...I certainly don't want to waste it...
By the way...I can't wait to see pictures of your show home, I know it will be gorgeous!

You are not boring us. I'm glad to hear all is progressing so nicely. You even had time to can...sounds wonderful the applie pie filling. I would have never thought of that.

Charlene - I'll get the recipes from my mom in the next day or so and post the directions. I had someone else ask for the recipe, too.

Wow, my head is spinning! I don't get people who can cram that much into their day!!! I can hardly wait to make some salsa, too. (I go the lazy route and make freezer salsa, though!)

You must be so relieved to have all the bank stuff taken care of. How exciting!

Tara said...

Thanks ago for the apples, I will be making the filling soon! Glad everything has worked out this week. Take care...Fargo?

Lindsay said...

Eagerly awaiting your mom's recipes!

Congrats on everything, crazy girl... Just think of how awesome it will be to sit back when it's all done and feel like you've accomplished it :)

We'll catch up in real life soon.

I'm impressed. You're making me feel lazy, so I'll go make something tomatoey and can it so I can feel better!

Goodonya mate! (Or however you might spell that.
