CanningPosted: September 11, 2012
It’s that time of year again. The tomatoes need to be canned. The peppers need to be frozen. Apples need to be turned into applesauce.
I had a lovely day yesterday, sitting in the Alcove, nestled under the trees, listening to the birds, the breeze, and the buzz and hum of insects. I watched the clouds drifting overhead. I picked up the book I brought with me, thought about reading, and went back to watching the clouds.
In the early evening I moved to the deck and watched the play of light in the bushes and trees.
I couldn’t have asked for a better day.
Thanks for dropping by the Bogs today. I’ll have to keep this short. While I’m busy with the canning and freezing, feel free to have a seat on the deck. There’s iced tea. (Today’s iced tea is an unsweetened rooibus flavored with a little orange zest. You can always add some local honey if you like it sweet.) Wine is available for those inclined in that direction. Put your feet up, relax, and enjoy the view.
Happily we bask in this warm September sun,
Which illuminates all creatures…
~ Henry David Thoreau
