School is going well, but we’re all already very tired. DS is getting into the “groove” of 9th grade and DD attended her first on-campus college class. She drove to school at 6:15 am (I got up at 5 am to make breakfast and get ready) and then I drove home as she doesn’t have her license yet. I unfortunately cried as she walked in the door to class. It was almost like repeating kindergarten again–when you take your kid to school for the first day. She didn’t see it but I cried all the way home I am so glad for her, but didn’t realize the impact. What will it be like when DS goes to college. I will definitely have to get a full time job to keep very busy so I won’t miss them so much after DS starts college in four years!
I also picked the garden as well this morning. We had over ½ a quart of okra, two quarts of green beans, jalapeños, lots more tomatoes, a good number of cucumbers and a bell pepper. The okra was sliced and put in the freezer. The green beans will be blanched in the morning with another ½ quart I had from before. The jalapeños were added to the container in the fridge—on hold until I make salsa. Everything else is either ripening—in the case of the tomatoes—or we will be eating fresh.
Tomorrow is laundry day, but not so much time on the road. At least I will be able to continue putting the ribbing on the second sock. Yes, it isn’t far from being done and I don’t have to count rows any more. Just knit until I run out of yarn. Then it’s back to a pair of wool socks as the weather is starting to cool down. I also put another row or so on the granny square blanket this afternoon. I am on the last color—variegated—and it is looking nice. I can’t wait until it is done.
