My computer gave up on me this week. For several days, it would let me on for a few minutes before blinking off. I finally quit trying. A new monitor is on the way and should fix the problem. Tonight Ed rigged up the computer with an old monitor just so I could check email and pop in quick here.
Actually, it was good timing. The last two weeks have been crazy busy. I was almost glad that the computer distraction was eliminated from my life. I remember this happened last year. Maybe there is a lesson here?
venison to can (and he has never left me down yet) I won't need to get the canner out until next summer.
This week I finished up the applesauce, did crockpot apple butter, and made ketchup with the last of the tomatoes that I've been collecting in the freezer.
I actually can't believe, looking in the freezer and canning shelves, that we have so much abundance in our summer drought. I do have a lot of empty jars, and last year I filled every one. But we ended up with far more than I expected.
God is good. All the time.
I know it to be true. But it is so easy to forget. And complain.
Sometime I need to write down all the lessons learned from a dry year. And from broken computers.
