Another Surprising Blessing!


Remember sometime ago I was complaining that I never found canning jars at any of the Goodwill stores! Well,a couple of weeks ago..I ventured into one and to my surprise there they were :o) I couldn't believe my eyes, finding them is a rarity.
I looked at Cecil and the look on his face was a little sour..like (she doesn't need to get involved with that now)..I took a couple of steps away..then decided that he would be the first one to open a jar of peaches and eat most of them ...So I took a couple of steps backwards and picked up the whole 14 of them and thanked God for leading me into the store on a whim! ..I paid $4.and change for them and I would have to pay about $12.or more in the Fall, if they weren't all gone by then..seems everything is going up, and I'm too fugal to pass up a good deal...I take it as a sign that God knows I will need them and will give me enough energy to use them.Nothing like a wise woman to take care of her larder :o)

Ladydi, I'd like to think I found them, but I know I was prodded into going there then, where they were waiting for me :o)...Ginny

What a lucky find, Ginny! Now you need to have some good weather arrive so you can get out there in your almost an acre farm to grow something to put in them. :D

Daisy, I hope we have the energy to get something planted on "the Farm" ;o)..Cecil is going to look for someone to till the soil for us...he won't be able to do that (neither will I)..Ginny
