DH and I made salsa Thursday night , we had 7 qts and 1 pt. We also canned 3 qts of tomato juice from the tomatoes that we squeezed out to make the salsa.. There was 1 qt of whole tomatoes , that were leftover , so they we canned them too.
I was going to make tomato -basil sauce with the other tomatoes we had left. I harvested the best of my basil leaves , washed them and put in them in a paper towel to dry. I left them on the kitchen table and they got threw away by accident during the salsa making. Guess I'll make spaghetti sauce , since I won't need as much basil.
I still have jalapenos that need to be preserved . I'm planning to make stuffed jalapenos to freeze and will probably can a few more jars of pickled rings. After hours in the kitchen Thursday night , I rested last night but tonight we'll be back at it again. I can't work with peppers while I have the Grands , so we have to do it at night.
I'm thrilled to have salsa made , didn't think I was going to get to make any this season. It's so expensive at the grocery store , I hate paying those prices.
I've almost got the bedroom decluttered , have one more corner and the closet to do. I have got all the clothes that were stacked up , sorted and removed. It looks and feels so much better.

He was getting the hang of it . I'm sure he'll be swinging like a monkey before long.
We had lots of water balloons , they played a game called " Put Out the Flame. You had to take a towel and get a water balloon , wrap the balloon (Flame) to smother it and put out the flame , by sitting on it or stomping it. They couldn't get the balloons to burst , it was so funny. They finally had to throw them up in air or against something to bust them.
It was a great party , the adults had alot of fun with the water balloons too. Water Guns and Water Balloons were the perfect thing for a hot August day , most of the adults went home wet too.
I was proud of the older kids , they helped me pick-up all the busted balloon pieces , and I didn't have to ask them to help. I'm planning to use them in an art project and on a scrapbook page.
Hope you had some childlike fun over the weekend !

I have both of the grand babies today , so I won't get much done. Today I will enjoy my time with them. They're 8 months old now , crawling and exploring everything. I didn't think , Little Missy would crawl but after watching Little Froggy ( new nickname ) for Sweet Baby J , crawl around , she has started crawling. I thought she would be walking by now , but since she has started crawling , it'll probably be awhile.
Little Missy is waving and saying bye-bye , she can say Momma and a week ago today , she said Pa-Pa. She has won Pa Pa's heart , that's for sure. She also tries to call my cat , his name is Buddy and she calls him Bu . Little Froggy will say Hey , and is trying to wave.
They bring so much joy to my life , can't wait for the new arrival in Dec.. My oldest daughter's due date has been changed to Dec. 29 , maybe a Christmas baby.
Curious J will be here this afternoon , I miss not having much time to spend with him , but I was blessed to have the first 3 years with him.
He's still curious as ever , he'll be 4 tomorrow. DH is going to make him a rope swing , just what a curious little monkey needs.
Well , I need to get off the computer and finish the grocery list for the birthday celebration this Sunday.
Have a Great Weekend and enjoy those small Blessings that come your way.
