Today was going to be our travel day. With the rain forecast and high wind warnings both here and in Capitola, I’m glad we decided to forego our trip down there. Now tomorrow looks quite nice but flooding just doesn’t recede overnight. In light of all this, I do think it was the right decision.
Today is a home day and I’m glad to be doing some home things. I plan on pressure canning pinto beans and that will take most of the morning. I want to reorganize my canned goods in the wine crate pantry and pull things that might be close to expiration so they can go to the food bank.
Now that I have the Ivar system for the canned goods complete, I can start to do more pressure canning. It’s great to be able to see what I have left and it’s all organized. I did use my raw silk curtain as a cover when I don’t necessarily want to see all the pantry items. I had B put up a small curtain rod on the top edge to hang a rod. Usually, I keep it open but I like the option of the visual of the raw silk. After this, I plan to pick one recipe to do like a ready meal. Probably a soup of some kind. I do have some split peas I need to use so maybe that will be first up.
I went to the gym yesterday and I plan on swimming tomorrow. The pool sent out an email that it will be closed for most of June and maybe July as they plan to resurface it. Their other pool is competition size and is used for swim lessons. I’ll need to check how they will do lap swimming and the times.

Pretty soggy here in S Cal today so I can only imagine how much snow your area has gotten
The snow in Tahoe is phenomenal. Todd Borg , my favorite author, lives in South Lake and he said on his blog the snow is up to his second story windows. Our snow is all gone here but we did get walloped with rain and wind. I -80 has been closed so much.
The silk is quite elegant looking.
I love raw silk. One of my favorite books of old was Alan Watt’s ‘Uncarved Block, Unbleached Silk.’
It rained here in Palm Springs. I have never encountered rain here before. It sure made the desert green quickly
I hope it was still a fun time:)
