I did manage to change a couple doctor appointments and figure out how the water company determined my water bill cost and prepared the binding for the quilt I'm working on. I still need to make a label for the quilt. I even made some temporary labels for my canned jars of jelly, salsa and spaghetti sauce. My friend Kelli gave me a website to go to to create some labels that will fit just right and maybe even be cute.
After dinner we had adult beverages on the front porch. The day is done.....
July 13 I was getting ready to leave for my PT appointment when David hollers at me to grab my camera and come out front. Our #8 Cow had her first calf which makes 5 so far for 2021. She made it easy to take pictures. She had the calf right up next to the front fence. I love the little calves. They're so cute when they first get up and then once they get their land legs they're playing with the other calves, running and butting heads. Momma didn't want me to get any closer to her baby which I couldn't since I was on the other side of the fence.

This was a awesome day! Today my friend and fellow blogger Linda and her husband LD came to the farm. We haven't seen each other in almost 6 years. We lived in Houston and she in Dallas and it just never seemed to be in the cards for us to get together but today broke that trend. YAY!
She even came bearing gifts.. Fresh honey that she helped make and tended the bees that made it. And she had a bag of fresh black-eyed peas. Haven't tried either yet but it will have soon. Wonder if honey is good on Zucchini bread. I hope to make some real soon. I hope the bread will be good period since I've never made it before. LOL
She snapped a great picture of David's garden. She and LD were happy that we shared our harvest with them. Even sharing we still had an abundance of veggies left over. I'll be making spaghetti sauce and salsa, pickled peppers, zucchini chips and bread. Oh and I'll be making some Lemon Vodka Pepper Jelly from a recipe my friend Diana D. It's gonna be a busy kitchen to say the least.
David snapped this picture and it looks like Jerry has an orange cigar.
Linda also snapped a great picture of Jerry. He was quite willing to pose.
Linda caught a picture of me & David on the porch as they left to go back to their home away from home.A few days later I decided it was time to try my hand at making a Lemon Vodka Pepper Jelly. My quilting friend Diana shared her recipe. It tastes really good with just a bit of a bite of heat. But I think I may have cooked a tad to long. It's more like jam but that's okay. Again I'll know better next time.
How was your 4th of July? We stayed and babysat our grand fur babies while Pamela went to Cypress to hang with friends there for the weekend. I made some salsa that afternoon. Had my tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and 5 different kind of peppers in that pot ready to cook and down, then I used my emersion blender. Poured the sauce into jars and put them in their bath. And pop pop pop went the tops. All sealed up.
Later that evening I was trying to sew up a quilt so I could get it in the mail to it's new home but I had help. They were a little concerned over the fireworks going off near by. Sophie made it very difficult when she got between my feet and sewing machine pedal. Bri was concerned but she guarded the door so no one would get me. LOL
She baked her tasty Apple cobbler to share with her friends.. Sure wish I had an apple cobbler. sniff sniff. LOL
Pamela took the picture of Connor. Look at those lashes. Gorgeous.She also posted a snapchat pic of herself and I screen shot it. Besides being an awesome picture of her beautiful self it said Happy 4th of July. She informed me I was biased when I said she was beautiful. Maybe but I don't think so.
