What's Up Wednesday

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  I'm sorry that I've been so quite lately.  I was sick last week and could hardly get out of bed :(  and then this week I've been so busy with household chores!  We finally repainted the hallway and I got around to making and canning applesauce, and I just started getting my fall clean up stuff done.  Phew!  Do you guys every have so much work that you feel like running away?  'Cause I sure do right now!

Because I've been so busy, I haven't had a chance to work on my plastic canvas designs :(  Once the fall clean up is all done, hopefully I can get back to making  patterns more frequently!  I have lots of Christmas ideas I want to make before it's too late! 

Here are some pictures of what's been going on in my house lately!

I recently went out and picked the rest of my carrots and peppers.  I got a pretty nice harvest!  About 8 pounds of carrots and 3.5 pounds of peppers.

Of course the best part about carrots is seeing what kind of crazy shapes you get.  That one with three long legs is ridiculous.

We went to a local farm to pick up some apples, and they were also selling cabbage.  HUGE cabbage!  Like 25 pound, bigger than your head cabbage. This should last me all winter.

We've gotten lots and lots of apples from the local farm, mostly for eating, but I made sure to pick up a bushel of Macintosh apples for our apple sauce.  I like to make it all up once a year and can it.  It's so good!  The Macs this year were especially sweet and yummy.

 This is my 11 quart corn pot full almost to the brim.  That's only half of the apples!  It's easy to make though because I use a Victorio food mill.

I ended up getting 15 quarts of apple sauce, and made half plain and half cinnamon.  Mmm!

I got some new catnip for my kitties, and it's high powered stuff.  Sunshine literally sat in the spot where I had put the nip all day long.  He yawned just as I took his picture, but I like to think that he's saying "thanks for the catnip!", hehe.

And here's princess Spices in a big, warm, fluffy basket of clean sheets.  Aren't cats great?

Welp, I hope you're all doing well!  And hopefully not as busy as I have been lately!  I'll try to get a new free pattern out this Friday.  Hopefully things will be a little calmer by then.  Have a great week, everyone!


  1. Wonderful peppers and carrots.The funny carrot shapes makes me laugh. Here in Portugal we are cabbage lovers so that cabbage would last about a week over here :D
    This year we also had a lot of apples, and doing apple sauce is a great way to use them. I usually justa bake them in the oven, since my Dad really likes baked apple.

    1. Thanks Bella! I guess you do love cabbage if you could eat that monster so quickly! I love baked apples too! Especially filled with raisins and a little butter. Mmm!

  2. All of that fresh produce looks amazing. Growing up my mom made cinnamon applesauce every year. We had a large family, so we only got into a jar on special occasions. Mmm...I can smell it right now. Glad you're feeling better.
