My plans for this year was to preserve things I haven't before. So far I did ketchup and salsa, and this weekend I made kiwi and orange jams.

Its been while since I post what we are reading, the last few weeks of summer were really busy so we didn't read much but since school year started we pick up few new books.

Ella is going thru SMILE and SISTERS and I ordered DRAMA and BABYSITTER CLUB books in the library.

I'm reading JULIET IMMORTAL by Stacey Jay.

And Maya started CITY OF BONES.

The canning season has been in full swing for a while now, I'm slowly using up all my jars for jams and pickles and fruits. Few weeks ago I canned some peaches.

Its starting to get cooler outside and that makes me thing about fall and clearing the garden. I still have lots of herbs and when time comes to cut them all I will not have enough space to dry them so I started now. My husband calls this major hanging.

I also cut some basil to make new plants.
