Aerie Report, September 12, 2011

Hey! The J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS! pulled on out last night. The Cowboys had never lost a game where they led by 14 points in the fourth quarter...until last night. Blocked punt, fumble recovery on the 2 yard line (keeping Dallas out of the end zone), an interception, and a 50 yard field goal with 26-27 seconds left and the J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS! come away with a 27-24 victory in week one.


Terry was out all afternoon so I entertained my self by peeling, slicing and canning 26 pints of peaches. SHE can carry the things downstairs! (Along with the 7 quarts of tomato sauce.)

With blueberry jam, strawberry jam, tomato sauce, and now peaches, all that remains is to find a source of apples for some applesauce.


Terry did go out late this afternoon to pick from the garden and reports that the string beans seem to have finally given up the ghost. (Perhaps they drowned?) The zucchini, too, are no longer producing. Might be time to pull both the string beans and zucchini plants and put them on the compost heap.

Freezer is packed with string beans, zucchini bread and grated zucchini, and blueberries. What's missing is meat. Which is sorta okay since there's no room in the freezer for it at the moment.


A most unusual day here at the Aerie: No rain. But, hey! The day ain't over yet!

A very productive day, it seems. The only time I ever cared to peel/slice/dice was when the company was good & conversation made the time fly by.
