Is It Friday Already?

This week has gone by too fast. I feel like I'm being stretched in too many directions, and nothing is getting done. Hubby and I have canned tomato juice, diced tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, three varieties of salsa, and I've made tomato soup. I didn't like it well enough to can it. And I still have about 5 gallons of tomatoes to do, and would like to pick some green ones and make some chow chow. I'm just about sick of tomatoes. But it's the best production we've ever had so I guess we should be grateful. Next year could be a bust.

In addition to tomatoes, I've frozen several quarts of shredded zucchini, onions, and blackeye peas. We should eat this year.

We finally got paid by the insurance company and looked at some replacement flooring. I hate making these choices. What I like in the store, I don't like as well once we get it home. This is the original floor:



And here are three choices we picked yesterday.



I really liked the first one in the store, but not so much here. What do you think?

I don't know why your floor has to be replaced, but since insurance is involved, I can only imagine it wasn't planned. I love your original floor! Are you tired of the darker wood? I think the middle one would look nice with your fireplace.

I think we like the middle one best too. Yes, we had a water leak and part of the floor was ruined so it's all being replaced now.

I like the third one, but I tend to like the darker woods.

I like #2 and #3 - the darker wood looks better with the tile, but #3 might be too dark when the whole room is covered.

I like #2 also. That's a lot of tomatoes you have!

Congratulations on all your veggies!! (I mis-typed that word - so I DID delete the other post!) I love #3. But then, I am strange!

Marti said...

I like #3 too. I'm just afraid it's too dark and will make the large room (with only 2 north windows) too dark.

I like #3. And I'm envious about ll your tomatoes! I barely got some cherry ones, and that's it. I have a ton of zucchinis and some cucumbers right now but not much else.
