I want to can soup today. Have you ever done that? And if you have how in the world do you do it? :) I've cooked my meat but if I'm reading the recipe right you don't really cook the soup, you just get it hot and put it in the hot jars. Is that how you do it? And right about now you're probably asking yourself why in the world does she want to do that - has she lost her mind? It's like this...we have deer meat left in the freezer from last fall's hunt. It's almost fall again. I need to get that meat out of the freezer to make way for this year's hunt but there's too much of it to eat. So I'm thinking I'll can soup, chili, and spaghetti sauce. But I've never done it before and don't remember what mother did.
Or maybe I should just can the meat with some beef broth on it...what would you do?
Which brings me to another matter. There are a lot of things I've never done before and that I really should try...or not.
I've never cut my own hair. My beautician is retiring - I think I told you that and that my daughters and I are all running in circles in a dead panic over what to do. Unlike my daughters I no longer color my hair (sorry girls if your friends didn't know that you color it 'cause now the world knows). I'm thinking maybe I could just cut my own. What do you think?
I've also never taken every stitch of clothes out of my closet, gotten rid of them, and started over. Some days I'd like to do that. Wouldn't that be fun? I'd have all new clothes to wear to the hospital to visit my husband after he had a heart attack over me buying a new wardrobe.
And I've never just flat out told my neighbor off for letting her dogs run wild in the neighborhood threatening anyone who walks past her house and even biting one or two. I have this overwhelming drive to be nice. You know the way God tells us to be? But couldn't He just cut me some slack on this one thing this one time? I need permission to be ugly one time - do you know of a verse in the Bible that will give me permission for that? Because I definitely think I need permission before I do it.
I've never stood up in the middle of a sermon before and yelled, "Amen!" I've wanted to on occasion. But I'm afraid someone in the congregation might have a heart attack. We have a lot of old people in my church. But not me, I'm not old. Going on 63 is not old. My goodness I won't be old til at least 93. Maybe one Sunday when it's particularly inspiring I might do that.
I've never bungee jumped either. And I definitely won't do that. But I did get the funniest audio about bungee jumping I ever heard yesterday and I'd love for you to hear it except I don't know how to attach the file. I laughed so hard I cried. I promise you would laugh out loud! So if you'd like to hear it let me know and I'll forward it to you - I do know how to do that! Or tell me how to insert it in here and I'll add it here. I got it as an attachment in an e-mail.
I've never driven on the left side of the road. That's because I've never been to Europe. And since it's not likely I'll ever get to go I'm considering just trying it here. I could just go driving merrily along forcing people to move over to their left and maybe we'd all end up driving that way. Or not. Of course if I did that someone would probably take my license away and then where would I be? I'd be forced to ride my 3 wheel bike everywhere. Probably not a good idea.
