Making pickles with Mom

pickles11

So, I am still unemployed, which isn’t so bad, really. Except that looking for jobs on Craigslist feels like buying something off an infomercial. Too bad I’m too old to sell my eggs. Just kidding. Sort of.

Anyway, my mom has a huge garden that is overflowing with food, so she asked if I would help her do some canning. At first, I was like, do I have to? Star Trek: The Next Generation is on BBC America. But then I gave in.

Her garden really is beautiful:

I also love all the little trinkets and tableaus around her house:

She has a lot of portraits:

I'm the one on the right who looks like Alfalfa from the Little Rascals.

And yes, we DID actually make pickles:

Next week we are going to do something with the basil. Unless I get a job by then. Too bad I’m too old to rent out my uterus. Just kidding. Sort of.
