We had another round of peppers ready to pick. These grandsons had a big time helping Grandpa pick them.
Then (again) we roasted, peeled and chopped the chilis and sliced all the bell peppers. They’ve all been frozen to enjoy later.
There are still jalapeños in the fridge that I plan to pickle.
Two of our grandsons live on a small farm and raise Guernsey Show cows. They showed one at the Tulsa State Fair and a local tv channel did a feature story on them which turned out so cute.
My husband has been making some decorative knives. He gets fancy wood scraps from a friend with a high end cabinet business.
The knife parts are blanks he mail orders.
We grow zinnias most every year. It is really easy to harvest their seeds.
I just trim off the flowers when they’ve turned brown.
Then I leave them to dry for a few weeks.
After that, I’ll just take them apart, keep the seeds to plant next year and then throw away all the non-seed parts.
There will be thousands of seeds once I separate.
There could be bugs so I’m leaving the sack of zinnia heads in our tornado room to dry out.
We mowed and edged the yard this week and we hope it’s the last mowing of 2017.
I keep an old pair of shoes that are just for yard work. I’ll wash them and then they’ll be ready for more yard work in the spring.
It’s been feeling more summer like than fall like but that changed yesterday when a cold front moved into our state yesterday.
I think it’s amazing that it was 41 in one part of Oklahoma and 94 in another at the exact same time.
Our daughter in law is a hair stylist. This is a recent photo shoot at her salon where her 2 daughters posed as customers.
Both little girls have lots of long dark thick hair.
I think these photos turned out so cute.
I’m wondering who had the most fun, Charlie and Andie or their momma, Sheena?
I think it was an afternoon to remember for all of them. ❤️
I just put our supper in the crockpot- Cowboy Casserole from Cheryl’s frugals corner.
I think it will taste especially good on this cool fall day 🍁 I’m a big fan of simple recipes like that this that just use basic pantry ingredients.
