Weekend Wrap-Up

It was a great weekend for a duck around here. It's currently raining and has been raining all weekend long. Very wet. We need the rain so I won't really complain but it rained so hard last night and at two different times. Needless to say I didn't get much sleep and am very tired right now. 

I just finished sewing two of Ella's old jeans into capri's. She didn't have any and I was thinking I should go get her some but then realized she had some jeans she's outgrowing. She's been wearing the same jeans for two years; she's finally starting to grow again. :)

I made up some homemade Boston baked beans yesterday. I love beans but have never made them myself. I'm also very picky about my beans so I was skeptical. I had a recipe in my canning book and I decided to give it a try. It took most of the day but was quite easy. I left out the pork too so they're vegetarian (not that it really matters, but it's more healthy). They turned out so yummy!! Zan was even surprised. I've never seen him eat so many beans. Although now that I think about it I might pay for that later. :) I have six jars of beans in my pantry and I need more beans to make some more!! Need to stock up for the summer grilling season.

I'm having a garage sale in a couple weeks and finished almost all my pricing yesterday too. It's nice to get all that stuff done beforehand. Now just hoping the weather cooperates. Speaking of weather I think I can finally go get some things for the garden and start some planting. I'm very excited to get things planted. Just need to dirt to dry out a little bit from the rain.

It has been interesting weather. Lots of flooding in the area. Yep those beans are good for you. Glad everyone loved them. Rummage sales can sure be a lot of work but when you think of the space you have created and the money you make its worth it.
