I worked so hard again today on my blessings from my garden. This is basically all I did today. I canned Green Tomato Pickles and hot pepper sauce. These are so good to eat with pinto beans and cornbread. My husband says that if I don't put anything else up, he wants these. It was his grandmothers recipe. They are easy to make. It just takes a while when you have a lot of tomatoes. I was so hot and tired from working so hard, and then I got a special phone call from my best friend. We didn't talk but 5 minutes, but it made my day. She just called to hear my voice. Isn't that so sweet? I have to tell you that it was so good to hear hers too. Life has changed so much for us. We used to talk everyday and as the years have passed, it just seems life has got so much busier. It is not that we don't think of each other everyday. It is just life happens. I don't know that we are doing so much more, or if as we have gotten older, it just takes us longer to do everything. Needless to say, when we talk or see each other it is just like we talked yesterday. She is so special to me in my life. We may not get to talk to each other like we used to, but if I needed her or she needed me, we would be there in a heartbeat and we both know that. What a day for blessings--garden blessings and a best friend.
P.S. I JUST FOUND OUT ABOUT ANOTHER BLESSING! I won a mystery gift over at my blogging friend, Connies Blog! Thank you Connie! I am so excited!
