Good. Random. Fun.

30 Aug

We were supposed to have a sunny day today, but I think the smoke from the wildfires out west blocked all the sun.  At least the sun looked awfully odd this afternoon, like it did when the news was reporting weather like this was caused by Canadian wildfires.  I do hope things improve out West.

The only place to see the sun around here today was the little sunflower that survived the yard goats.

I made some more candles today.  That’s probably what I’ll be doing any free moment I have.  It takes a lot to have a true store to open.

Sundrenched Vineyard

Today’s fragrances were sundrenched vineyard, milk and honey and pumpkin honey chai.

I didn’t do any more canning today, but I have tomatoes that are ready again.  I’ll worry about that tomorrow.

I’m hoping to have the last of my canning done by the end of next weekend.  That will be a great task done.

    Ya, we’ve seen that kind of sun here in western OR. Thankfully, we’re having “rainy” weather – not enough rain to do much good yet, though. Some of “your” smoke may be from WA. We’re enjoying the clearer air.

    Pretty candles!

      It was really odd on Sunday. Hope you are getting more rains.

    Great pictures! Like your names of your candles! Have a great Monday; it is very foggy out there at the moment!

      I’m not very creative. I just use the name of the fragrance oil I put in them.

    Love your candles but really! love your canning and tomatoes. Did you grown those yourself?

    • Teresa September 1, 2015 at 7:52 am #

      I did get these tomatoes from my garden. I have a bunch more that need canned now.

    Lots of nice tomatoes. 😀 Smoke makes for interesting sky colors.

    • Teresa September 1, 2015 at 7:52 am #

      It was just the most odd sky that day.

    Wonderful sun! The moon was also amber at the start. I got a shot, but after the majority of the golden glow had dissipated.

      I couldn’t see the lovely full moon over the weekend. We had too many clouds too.
