Computer issues and school starting

Did you miss me? OH my what a week it's been here! My computer totally quit on me a week ago, but thankfully it's back and up and running again. :) It's a bit scary how dependent we are on this silly thing, don't you think? I've felt completely out of touch without it. Thank the Lord, it's back and we are hoping we won't see any further problems for some time now. :)

School started here today. The kids are getting to ease into the school year, but by next week we'll be at almost full schedule. So far, so good...smooth with a few bumps, but nothing major. :) The weather today has sure felt like fall and a typical school day. As I type this post, it is POURING down rain outside. I have cookies baking in the oven, the smell of freshly baked bread still lingers in the house and I have 7 quarts of tomatoes canned and sitting in my kitchen. :) Feels like fall here, for sure! Sadly, my hubby is out working in this nasty (as he would put it) weather. That is the only downside to the weather in my mind, though I know a few more days of warm temperatures and sunshine would do my green tomatoes some good. Oh well, I'll enjoy the rain if that's what we get. :)

I just wanted to check in and let you all know I was still here, just lacking a computer for a week. Thankfully everything can return to normal and I'll be able to post more often again. :)

Hurray for your computer working again :-) I always have mixed emotions when our computer is down. First I'm frustrated, then I'm glad, then I started doing a million other things, like reading, schedules etc....all the things I don't do because I'm bogged down with "computer time" and then I'm relieved it's up and running again.

It is rather silly but I am glad you're back~

Yep, raining here too!! :0) I started looking at recipes for green tomato salsa to can since I have tons of green tomatoes that have really no hope of turning red I found a few good recipes so I think I'm going to try it. I'm always so glad when the weather gets fallish for school so the kids sorta get the message that summer is over :0)!! Glad you are back!

momoflots, I did a TON of green tomato salsa last year and we love it! I just used the recipe out of the Ball canning book. It has a smokey flavor due to the cumin in it and is a nice change from the normal red salsa. I have a bunch of green tomatoes on the vine too, this summer has just not been much of a summer for gardening. Such a bummer. I'll make the most of it though! Have fun with your green tomatoes. :) By the's good to be back. :) Thanks for stopping by. :)
