Slipping Away . . .
This summer has slipped away so quickly! It has been a very weird summer for me, a few health problems, which seemed to get worse as the summer went on. Hopefully, (keeping my fingers crossed!), they will just get better, and better as we head into Autumn!
We had unseasonably cool weather in August, with lots of rain, which, in turn, ruined so much hay, that was unfortunately, cut and baled and laying in the fields. It also caused the grain to sprout, right when it was ready to cut, making it useless for anything but feed, and some of it not even fit for feeding animals. There was lots of mold and dust, a disaster for anyone with asthma . . . me! There were a couple of weeks that I could barely go outside. When they were finally able to cut the grain and gather the hay bales, the dust would just hang in the air it was horrible! After a Dr's visit today, I am hoping to get my asthma under control and enjoy the beautiful Idaho Indian Summers that we are so famous for!
I did get a few things done while sitting in the house . . .
I know, this looks like a terrible science project gone wrong, but I promise it's not! These are pickled eggs! After my husband and I were married, he worked for his uncle, on a ranch in Bone, yes, I said Bone . . . :0) A small community in the hills just East of where we live. There isn't much to do in Bone, but they did have a little store, that sold the most wonderful pickled eggs! I just loved to go there and buy one and enjoy it's tangy yumminess! Sometimes I would buy two! The vinegar makes them look kind of creepy, but I prefer apple cider vinegar to white distilled vinegar.
And at last, football season started! Yes, it truly is Autumn when the nights get cold, and the boys put on their uniforms! That's Christian, standing in the middle, it's hard to believe that he is all grown-up . . .
I hope to catch up on my blog reading tomorrow, and looking so forward to it! Well, I think I should call it a night, and go crawl into bed . . . night all!
