I am still here! We did have a great time on vacation. This week is kind of crazy in the garden and I am going to be doing lots of canning and some freezing so I still won't be around here much - you understand don't you? I knew you would. We have had very full and tiring days, but very good days. I do have a great all-in-one slow cooker meal to share with you when I can load my pictures. I will try to do that soon.
I also did my homemade vanilla extract for the first time this week. I got the idea from Heavenly Homemakers. I also really want to make these cute little playhouses for a Christmas present so I am trying to figure out how to work that in too! I know that I have to not overwhelm myself with projects especially while all my vegetables are getting ready to need attending to.
