My Name Is Not Oliva Walton!.....


I am convinced that my husband thinks that we are living on Walton's Mountain with twelve children to feed and it's 1930.....This year more so that last he's obsessed with canning and freezing....Or shall I say with ME canning and freezing anything and everything.......Today, he called with the exciting news that a friend had brought him down three bushels of Detroit Red apples from North Georgia.....Three Bushels......Do you know how many apples that is..........He ever so sweetly asked if "I" had everything I needed to "put them up".......This, After I have spent the entire day standing with my hands in hot water peeling tomatoes then stuffing them in jars waiting to be put in the pressure cooker........When I get finished typing this, I'm gonna pack up all his belongings, along with any empty mason jars I can find and stack them in a neat pile at the end of the drive way.......Do you think he'll get the message?.......Gosh, I'm sure gonna miss those nice legs of his....

Angie, You are so funny!

Yes, I think he would get the idea if you did that at the end of the driveway.

I have NEVER canned or preserved anything! I wouldn't have a clue where to start. So, I am impressed that you know how.

Maybe you are Olivia Walton afterall.

Angie - you are toooo hilarious. I've never canned anything either, except an ex-husband. Worked out well for me.

Well now after your comment on my blog I KNOW you really are Oliva Walton! ((smile))

I think my daughter Lynnette would be so impressed with all that you know how to do. She loves that kind of thing,...but she didn't learn any of it from her mother. She lives on 5 acres and has milked goats, raised chickens, collects the eggs, eats the chickens, grows a garden, grinds her own wheat, and cooks everything from scratch.

I have always been a city girl.

I can't even imagine not having an indoor toilet! Yikes!!!

You are amazing. Thanks for the sweet things you said in your comment today.

Love, Linda
