Actually, there aren't millions of peaches. We ate them all. We couldn't help it they were just too good. This year I only got one box because we wanted to try some plums and pears. The plums weren't great, but the pears we're good. The problem is who eats pears when you have peaches? Anyway, I only canned four jars of peaches and five jars of pears. I also made some pear wine, which is absolutely fabulous. My cucumber jelly is in high demand, so I made another batch. It was a busy weekend. I also made some peach cobbler. There isn't a photo, because we ate that too. Are you getting the feeling those peaches are really good?

Today was a perfect day. My friend from work retires at the end of the month. She has been a nurse for over 30 years. To celebrate her freedom and our friendship we spent a fabulous day in Hill City. A beautiful town nestled in the Black Hills. It is filled with winerys, art galleries, small businesses, and for the weekend quilts. They have a quilt show every summer. I love the community because although tourism is a major part of the economy they still hosted a wonderful event that the local community could enjoy. Also all of the stores are quick to recommend other local businesses.
What are your hobbies? Does your community host a quilt show? Is there a community close to you that hosts an enjoyable day?

My husband and I took a drive up a mountain to watch the northern lights. There were no northern lights, but we had a hellva good time watching the stars and visiting for two hours on the mountain top. I am so thankful that 25 years later we still sit and visit. The next evening we went bowhunting and although we didn't see any deer we had a good time.
Tonight a friend invited me over to pick grapes. We enjoyed a glass of wine, and had a wonderful visit. She is a great person and I've always enjoyed our conversations. This summer she went to Greece and it was fun discussing the difference between American and European cultures. We also shared our gardening woes.
I drove home, top and doors off of my Jeep, and counted my blessings. I didn't finish any huge projects this three day weekend. I didn't go on any big trips. I enjoyed my time and the people around me. Life is short and time is precious. I am thankful for the people in it. I hope you had a great Labor Day weekend and shared it with friends and family.
