Canning continues, a set on Flickr.

I am tired all the time, and if you are wondering why (and why I am not posting more often), this is partly why.

Once again I do have to say that Flickr is more representative of what’s happening with me than WordPress is.

Via Flickr:
I didn’t take as many pictures of the chiles from our garden (although I should have). Since sliced canned chiles was just one photo, I figured I’d make another set for whatever else we do this season.

EDIT 7 Oct 2012: Grape processing photos added– not finished making it up as jelly yet.

Wherever you see "jaklumen", that's me- the username is still unique as of the current year. Be aware that the facet you see, is only a small part of the me that is me.

    • It’s said that necessity is the mother of invention… well, here, it was mostly the mother of motivation. Means my kids will have food at the end of the month, because it gets tough every month.
