It Rained

This past weekend we got a bit of rain and then Tuesday morning it rained buckets but we had 49 mph gusts of wind to go with it.  It was very good to have though. No smoke in the air :)

This coming Sunday and though next week the temps will be dropping and we will have chances for snow each day and night.

Looks like Dave will be splitting wood as the snow flies this year. Not the first time.  He was splitting last week and got it thrown into the wood shed before the rain came in.  
We have some wood in on the enclosed porch on the wood rack and it has been handy as usual.  I have a nice cozy fire going this morning.


I did get Kaylee's sweater finished. It's not the best of the things I have knitted this was an old fashioned one from a book from the 1950's and done in pieces and some of those i didn't get lined up quite right lol.  Kaylee picked out the buttons from her great grandma Genes button collection.

 I made a cap to go with the oatmeal colored fingerless mitts and scarf.  Will send these off with a black set of mittens, scarf and hat to a friend of Corals in Germany. These kind of things are very very high priced in Germany.

Kool-aid Jelly
1 package kool-aid (if you want stronger flavor add 2 packages)
6 cups water

1 package or 4 tablespoons pectin
4 to 5 cups cups sugar
Add kool-aid and water to large pot, mix in pectin bring to boil and boil at least 2 minute. on med high heat.
Add sugar and bring to hard boil and boil 3 to 4 minutes.
Poor in jars add lids and rings and process in water bath or steam canner.

My mom made this when I was growing up and I have made it a few times myself For those times one can't afford fruit or don't have your own bushes or trees and no friends with same.
