Did you know today is Book Lovers Day? I just bought some. more.



I love books, but have not bought one in a while. I usually get them from the library as we have too many books around here.

There is a used book store here called "Too Many Books". I love to read, but must admit, I use the Kindle a lot.

I have a very large collection of books, just can't bring myself to part with them.

We have a terrific discount book outlet nearby:

Jeez, shopped for shoes. Ended up ordering. The way he's growing he wanted one pair for now and one pair a half size bigger. Didn't have what he wanted so had to order an 11 1/2 and a 12. He just turned 14.

Yeah, his dad takes a 14. That started in mid teens and I was so glad that I wouldn't have to pay for those for too many years.

I wear 8.5-9. Those are easy to find.

And yes, they fit comfortably.

Size 15 here. I can't remember when I wore a size 9. Maybe in junior high school, maybe even earlier.

My dogs like me, that is important.

I was reading in a comfy recliner on the deck this afternoon under the awning when it started raining. Just like a nice spring rain. By the time I woke up, everything was already dry.

Yoo-hoo, anybody home?
Canned seven quarts of tomatoes yesterday. I wasn't going to this year because I have enough left over to get me through next year. Then I started thinking, maybe husband wouldn't be able to plant them next year or maybe I wouldn't be able to can them next year. I don't want to be morbid but we are in our 70s and we kind of have to think ahead.

Mom's parents canned. After they passed, we emptied the fruit cellar. Some seals had broken, but that is to be expected because it had been years. Others were still good.

Mom will be 80 and Dad 77. They're still going strong. I hope I'm in that good of shape at that age.

I don't keep anything older than two years. Husband's uncle's wife canned a lot. Saw the cellar once. She had passed away at least 30 years before. It was the stuff nightmares are made of. I couldn't imagine even clearing it out. I think you'd need a hazmat suit.

Did well at the farmer's market today despite the rain while we were setting up. Been slow the last 3 weeks. Sold out of a lot but oddly not the Pecan Pie Bars which normally sellout quick.

I unpacked the car and we went to get black mulch and white marble rocks. They are still in the car.

Oogie brought home ribs and wings from the bbq joint.

We've been home binge watching Salvation. On a really nice day.

We'll head out later for Circlefest and fireworks. The fest was started a few years ago as the celebration of the city's 200th year.

he will fly up and meet us in Tokyo, then will be with us until Osaka. from there he goes back to work and we go back to Tokyo.

I am really looking forward to seeing him and getting a look at his new home and the city he's living in.

Daughter-in-law is out of town because of a terminally ill aunt. Will be back Tues. Another of her aunts, from the other side of her family, is flying in tonight for the eclipse. She and granddaughter are driving to Nashville Mon. She's a nice person but really a flake. Son begged me to have them over for dinner tomorrow. LOL

Poof, I forgot to tell you....my mother in law's ex-in laws (yeah I know) had home canned food BURIED in the back yard!!! You know, in case of the apocalypse. I kid you not. They also had money buried....plus other supplies. They were weird, and believed that the year 2000 was gonna be the last.
