Day of Firsts

Today was quite a day here on our little place...

Started out with the first real harvest. I have picked a few items here and there over the past several days, but this was the first *haul*.

Then upon returning from town, picking up the children, we found that Maybelline has hatched her first baby!

Finally, I made the first batch of canned goods of the season this evening. It has been 2 years since I canned anything. Jalapeno jelly!!! It was pretty much a "have to do today" or the jalapenos would have ruined. I had a few I had picked the other day and added them to the ones today to have enough to make a batch of jelly. We love Jalapeno jelly!

So it's been a very busy day here at Eason Acres; just the way I like it!

Who needs a treadmill?

When you have a push mower and over an acre of land to mow???

Honestly it's not so bad. We got a self-propelled push mower (my choice) and it runs so well, I nearly have to run (actually a very brisk walk)! Great exercise for me, though. Felicity learned to mow this week, so having the two of us work together makes the job go quickly.

A freebie I just LOVE

Just popping in for a minute to share this Kindle FREEBIE I found just a bit ago!

I checked this book out of the library a couple of years ago and really hated having to return it.

Now it's mine to keep!

So happy!

I will be back very soon to blogging on a regular basis. Got TONS to catch up on!
