Fajitas on the patio

 Naomi and I took advantage of the fact that it was only the two of us for dinner on Wednesday night and ate fajitas on the patio. Our normal dinner companions would not have been nearly as enthusiastic to be eating a dish with peppers in the company of mosquitoes.

Canning tomatoes

I canned tomatoes last week.

On Saturday, I picked the tomatoes (from Lauren Mae's garden) and washed them.

On Monday, I sliced them and ground them (at my mom's house since my blender had a mishap with a spoon a few months ago).

On Tuesday, I ladled the tomato sauce into jars and canned it.

On Wednesday, I reprocessed the jar that didn't seal.

On Thursday, I removed the rings.

On Friday, I and washed the outside of the jars.

On Saturday, I took the jars down to the basement and arranged them on shelves.

Hall of ideas

I took yesterday off and, with the visiting Pennsylvania folks, explored the Hall of Ideas at the Center for the Arts.
