What Does One Get Done With A Week Without Internet?

What did I accomplish with a week without the internet?

ALOT !!!

I canned tomatoes for the first time in years!   11 quarts and 7 pints.

I made Peach Butter, 1 qt. 6 pts; Peach Preserves, 6 cups; halved peaches, 4 qts;  and canned it all!

Along with that, I completed quite a few wholesale and retail orders.

I have enjoyed being at home so much and I am counting the weeks till I retire.  Originally it was the end of its looking like the end of November .... or sooner  :)

Verizon did a major blunder on their part with our internet service and I am slowly writing up a letter to post on their forum. 


Since we were without the internet for a week, I am moving the closing date of our Giveaway to September 7th.   So, if you have NOT already done so,

 then for a second chance



LIKE, COMMENT AND SHARE on your personal timeline,  make sure the post is public so I can see it,

to be eligible for a second chance to win this adorable pumpkin.


  1. I would love a chance to win, maybe you were just waiting for me! Glad your internet is back. Di@Cottage-Wishes

  2. Hi Cynthia - I saw your white batting pumpkins and would like to order 10 of them (on Etsy) Your listing said to contact you first, but I couldn't get the "ask a question" link to work. Would it be possible to get a listing set up for ten of them and how quickly could you have them all set? I need them for a shower early next month, I'm in Connecticut.

    Thanks so much! Patrice

    1. Good Morning Patrice! I am sorry the "contact" link did not work for you, I will have to check into it. I am sending you an email to the supplied address above to discuss things with you. Thank YOU! :)

  3. Wow, you sure have been busy! The only thing I canned so far is dill pickles.
    Love your pumpkin.

    1. Sandi, that is one thing I have not attempted to can.....yet. What recipe did you use?

  4. sounds like a very productive week. :) your pumpkin is a cute one. Hope you have a good turnout for your giveaway. I have added you as a I blog I follow and look forward to your future post. Have a great week.

  5. I experienced a week without internet myself a couple of years ago. It is amazing what one can accomplish unplugged. :) Your pumpkin is very cute, I'm so glad the deadline got pushed back a bit so I could get in on a chance to win it.
