I'm sorta upset because of the deadline I set myself. I won't be able to go to the fort tonight because I still have to set the skirt onto the waist. *sigh* Oh well, I'll still be able to wear the dress at the next camp and the Brigade encampment.

On the totally unrelated and bright side, our victory garden is really getting amazing! I just ran out and picked some strawberries : ). We also have zucchini, broccoli and carrots flourishing, as well as millions of tomatoes of all varieties! When I say millions of tomatoes, I mean quite a lot of plants, about like, 3 or 4 beds.

Today is a very hot day, and I've got a headache. Not because of the heat; I need new glasses. I actually ordered some new glasses online a few days ago, but I ordered using my old prescription! I feel really dopey for not noticing the glasses are coming anyway, and I'll order some new ones with the right prescription when they do.

Well, we have a big family, and there are different kind of tomatoes. Some are better for slicing, some for sauces, some for soups, and they all can be frozen, so they won't be wasted!

I bet! We haven't made homemade tomato sauces before, sounds like fun! We make jams and jellies and pickles, alot though. (We are accually going to be making some rasberry and plum jam today!)
