getting close to autumn

our pups are getting bigger. it must be the anatolian shepherd blood in them. they are almost as tall as konugish now. they are also border collie mix too. they are bred to be working dogs. we wanted them as guard dogs to protect our chickens and corn field.

i am getting a pair of moccasins made by one of our potawatomi ladies. she is very good in her craftsmanship. she is using part of a smoked indian tanned deer hide i had been saving. she told me it may take a while. i said thats alright i can wait on them. maybe i will get them by our fall dance. thats okay if i dont. i know they are being made. i havent had a new pair of moccasins in some time.

i picked the rest of our green beans. they dried up in the heat we had. i will save them for seed next year. i still have to separate them from the pods and store them. i know they will produce a good crop. i started with heirloom seeds. these will have plants identical to the parent plant. and i will save a few bucks by not having to buy seed.

my tomato plants are producing lotsa tomatoes. i picked another 4 flats of them. i picked some early because i didnt want critters to get them. they will ripen some more. then we will can them. this will be the third batch that we canned. that will pay off this winter.

i am glad that i had about 20 plants this year. at first i didnt want that many but i like it now that we dont have to buy any to can. i used my drip irrigation system i had hooked up to my rain barrels. i got to water them using rain water. i thought that was pretty neat.

i have sun dried a lot of cherry tomatoes too. we have them stored in one of the air tight containers i bought. they are real sweet tomatoes. they too will taste good this winter when we use them.

my cardiac rehab is completed. it got me in shape to continue working out. mary and i walked two miles sunday and monday. we have a good start this week. i am lifting weights too. i do the sets that was part of my rehab. i sent a thank you note to the staff that helped me rehab. i do appreciate their help.

i was told to drink plenty of water. that sounds easy but isnt. i drank water while i worked out at rehab. we also carry water when we walk. we drink it up before we get home. we have a water cooler. i got no excuse for not drinking more water. i am making an attempt to do that daily. i am keeping track on my fitbit. i know it is good for me. more importantly, it make me cut down on liquids with sugar in them.

got chores to do.
