fragmented mumbly jumbly
Anyway, I made the drive in record time, somehow turning the usually 10.5-11 hour drive into a 9.5 hour drive; enjoyed the buddings of fall colors, which are already springing up along I90 in New York State and Massachusetts; listened to books on CD; enjoyed the solitude.
And then I was back in community. A slow introduction back into life here, I fortunately had today off. A quiet day. A day of accomplishments:
- canned 7 quarts of homemade salsa (made with my tomatoes!)
- presently making applesauce to can
- tried my pickles, which have been pickling for over two months. Good, but not as good as last year's recipe
