Cayenne, Jalapeno, & Carmens
October 5, 2011
I realize my blogging has been rather sporadic, but we just got our youngest son married off over the weekend. I am surprised at how much energy that takes, although we really had nothing to do with the planning, only the groom's dinner and the actual wedding itself. Still, somehow it's a draining experience.
Another blogger's brother was married on the same day. She wrote and asked me if I had recovered yet. I would say that I'm still working on it. Don't get me wrong, it was a beautiful wedding, we so appreciated all the friends who showed up, and it was wonderful to have almost all the family here (only missing Gus), staying overnight at our house the night of the wedding. I love that!! Oh yeah, Joe and his bride did not stay here. ;-)
And now, after all these years, Kevin and I are truly 'empty nesters.' Not that we were eager for Joe to move out or anything, but I've already brought home paint chips and plan to paint his room in the next couple weeks. That will make 3 guest rooms. Good grief! I should open a B&B!
When I can find some 'before' pics, I will write a post about the schoolroom makeover we did last week. Today I am washing clothes, canning the very last of the apples, and dicing and freezing peppers. It's a gorgeous fall day, close to 80 degrees and sunny. Wish we could hold onto that for a while.

It's time to put that last batch of apples through the food mill.
