I had a few cukes to share and more than enough green peppers to make my quota of Stuffed Green Peppers for the year. Also, there are many small misshapen green peppers that our good neighbors want to use in making their homemade "V-8" juice so none will go to waste.
These same good neighbors have been supplying us for some time with delicious tomatoes grown in their quasi-greenhouse. How wonderful is that?
The year's grand total of Stuffed Green Peppers in the freezer as of yesterday is enough for thirty-three meals for us. I'm thinking that's a more sensible number than last year when I had forty-five meals worth. This past spring I found I was foisting them on anyone who sat down at our table.

I know it would have been better to get the trim on our house painted during the summer months, but with other projects taking precedence it just didn't get done.
Thinking September would be a good month to spend on a ladder (!), we finally decided on a paint color and I was ready. Then the rain started. If it wasn't out-and-out raining, it was gray and threatening rain.
Oh well, I thought. October gives us gloriously, sun-filled, warm days. I'll get the painting done then with no problem.
I know we're only into the first week of the month, but Mother Nature doesn't seem to realize we've turned a new calendar page and wet September is over. So far, we're yet stuck in the gray, wet, gloom and doom.
Oh well, October will still give us gloriously, sun-filled, warm days for painting. Won't it???
