Procrastinating & Poofing the Pillows

noun: procrastination; plural noun: procrastinations
the action of delaying or postponing something.

"You should avoid procrastination."


gerund or present participle: procrastinating
 "I am procrastinating by taking photos of my garden, when I really should be writing a research paper for my business course."

I have no idea who those examples are referencing... 
((Wink, wink!))

Just a little definition to enhance our vocabulary.
Totally random.
But, since the second example referenced garden pictures, I figured, why not?!

We've got so many green tomatoes.  I can't wait to can some spaghetti sauce, salsa, and stewed tomatoes!

We also have a lot of blooms on our cucumber plants.  More pickles!


After a weekend of canning, I had to clear out this cabinet, because my pantry was full!

This weekend I put up mixed veggies, Italian snap beans, strawberry lemonade concentrate, and corn.

The top shelf is a variety of jams and jellies from last year's canning, and the bottom right is a jar of local honey, and some old fashioned cane syrup that I bought at the feed store.

I've also worked on a pillow project for the master, and wanted to share another fabulous birthday gift...

The gift was a pillow wrap that says, "I love you to the moon and back!"  How sweet is that?!

I do love my hubby... I'm so blessed!

From the bottom of my heart... thank you, thank you sweet friend of mine for thinking of me on my birthday.... Sweet Rachal!

I wrapped the bolster with burlap, tied the ends with an elastic ribbon (like a piece of candy), and pinned my great grandma's broaches on one end.
((I just saw that the gold butterfly is upside down.. poor thing probably has a headache!  Gotta fix that.))

Sorry it is foggy... who knows why?

D-R-E-A-M letters purchased ((on sale last week, maybe still?)) at Hobby Lobby.

"When I want you in my arms
When I want you and all your charms
Whenever I want you
All I have to do is dream
Dream, dream, dream..."

 I purchased some really cute pillow covers off of etsy, and need to add a few more pieces.  Before it is over, we'll have a pile of pillows.  Making the bed will really be a CHORE!

Hope you're enjoying your Monday!

    1. Ha! No shame.... I've just learned to angle the camera in a way that you can't see the pile of dirty clothes/dishes! LOL!
