Moving right along.

The non-money goals are coming along. I canned 11 quarts of pasta sauce today, and 8 last weekend, so I am at 19 quarts. Five more and I've met my goal for the year. I have a bumper crop of Romas, so I'm pretty sure I'll make it.

Although, I slaved over the stove for 6 hours today making sauce when I could just go to the store and buy some for cheap. Moneywise, it probably isn't worth it. But, at least I know the ingredients are organic and homegrown. And I get a kick out of the self-sufficiency part of it.

Also, I MAY -- just a maybe_- be finished with my first draft of my first novel by the end of this week. I was typing along on it today and realized I was almost there. Crazy!

As for my weight loss goal, I am joining a program at the YWCA called Fat Club. it's a six week weight loss exercise program. My friend has done it three times and has lost 30 pounds. She says it's hard, but a lot of fun. It starts Oct. 9 and will cost about $190. I'm amped. I want to be pre-baby skinny again!

    Yeah me too, at age 52 I don't think it's happening. Ha Ha.

    Hey you know I roasted tomatoes for canning and it was much easier. You still need to water bath them, but I roasted with garlic and olive oil and fresh basil. Delish!

    Congrats on the tomatoes and coming close to your goal! I imagine those pasta dinners will taste extra good in the coming months.
