Colonial Williamsburg

It seems like just yesterday we were on our way home from vacation. I wanted to post these pictures right away but "life happens".. And of course I didn't get all the pictures I wanted because My camera was acting up. This is a kitchen. I loved this one because we got to participate. Well the kids did but it was good for them it kept them interested. They had to fetch this wood and deliver the food that was prepared to the house. The kitchens were outside as to not heat up the house in the summer.

Cellar for storage

Some garden pictures

You can click on any of the pictures to enlarge. As I was looking at my pictures I realized I took more of objects that I wanted to reproduce here at home than I did of scenery or buildings. I have some shutter and fencing pictures as well as colors I liked. Oh well...... guess I had a mission and didn't know it. I'll post pictures of what I bought while I was there and some projects I finished on the ride tomorrow.

Yep we are packing for vacation. We leave in the morning for...............

One of a prim lover's favorite places...................................

We are going to Colonial Williamsburg!!!!!! Of course I will have to bear with the water park, Busch gardens and the beach just to see what I want. But the girls are getting older now so it'll be easier to do different things hopefully. We are taking along our niece and nephew too. It is forecasting 90's and 100's and if any of you know me know that I hate to be hot. But all will be well as I am with my family whom I love dearly. Say a prayer for me and the heat though. Will take lots of pictures. Maybe even get a piece of pewter or 2.

Supper anyone

I spent my day not as I had originally planned but worth while none the less.
I picked fresh veggies from my garden and decided I had to do something with them.
I planned stuffed peppers for dinner and figured while I was at it I made up 12 more for the freezer.

What else to do with green peppers?????????

I cut some up and put them in the freezer for use over the winter.

But what else??

I chopped some up and made spaghetti sauce. We'll have lasagna some time this week and the rest I'll put in the freezer.

I moved on to hot peppers next. I stuffed those with a sausage stuffing and par baked them to go into the freezer. When I get them out to eat later I just add sauce to warm them. DH and I like those as a side dish with spaghetti.
Sorry no pics. I got busy.

I've got some zucchini and squash baking right now in the oven. It was a recipe my SIL made we loved it so I'm trying it tonight to use up some more zucchini. Tori wants to make some bread tomorrow so it'll use up the rest of the zucchini that's been shredded.

The jalapeno peppers are already for stuffing too. Salsa was on the menu but none of my tomatoes are ripening because of the lousy summer we are having here in PA. So stuff them I will.

I try to use the bounty that God provides to me. I love taking things out of the freezer through the winter and knowing they came from our garden.

Anyone hungry???

Now for the big reveal. I finished painting the chimney cupboard...........

Not too bad even if I do say so myself. I'm not sure is I would take more off next time. I think I'll look for a piece at the TS to see if I can tweak my technique a bit.

Now it's off to sew. What I really wanted to relax and spend my day doing.
