I've been canning.
Which happens to be on the back patio.
I've been up and down a flight of stairs a bazillion times.
Ya, seriously. I have.
I've canned 42 quarts of Spaghetti Sauce!
Now I'm cooking down a quadruple batch of
It smells divine.
I wish I had Smell-o-Vision!
Cuz you would love it!
I'm going to let it simmer all day tomorrow.
I don't want to can anything tomorrow.
Cuz it's Sunday.
A day of rest.
A day of worship.
I need it.
My hubby and I took a few moments out of the evening to attend a
Patriotic Ceremony at the firestation.
Our Paramedics and our Firefighters put on a spectacular program.
I had a son serve a Tour of Duty
Because of 9/11.
I will NEVER EVER look at the flag the same.
Because of that day.
Because my son served.
Our firefighters and paramedics also played Amazing Grace on the bagpipes.
I love bagpipes.
I also love the paramedics and firefighters.
I work closely with them because
I work in the ER.
I feel honored to know them.
They presented a flag to Brady Howell's brother.
Brady was a local young man who died in the Pentagon on that fateful day.
They also unveiled a monument in honor of 9/11
They have pieces of the Twin Towers in that monument.
I felt overwhelmed.
I love our flag.
It was a very moving ceremony.
That we may never forget.
Note from Monday morning:
The salsa has simmered since Saturday night in my turkey roaster.
My house has smelled wonderful.
It's a thick and yummy tasting.
Off to put it in jars now!
