Fermenting salsa and dill pickles!! Yummmm!

As a youth, I frequently heard the ‘grown up folks’ mention that “time goes faster as you get older.” My young mind never quite understood those sentiments (remember how long it took for your birthday to come? Christmas morning to arrive? summer vacation to arrive?) However, as the years have passed (and while I know that ‘time is time’) there seems to be some serious truth in that expression!! I probably have to admit that in reality, I am the one ‘slowing down’ while the metronome of time ticks away at the same old continuous pace. So when I looked at the date of my last post, my emotions went from ‘what?!’ and ‘really?!’ to sheepish admission of my lack of diligent posting! In a moment of desperate emotion, I even told myself that maybe everyone else was so busy having a good summer that my negligence wouldn’t be noticed!! If that happens to be true, then just skip this little ‘rave!’ :) On the other hand, if you have wondered just where I have been and what I have been up to, I hope this post will fill you in! Remember…I started out this summer with a fractured shoulder….NO FUN!!! More…
