Why I love Sundays

This is why I love Sundays
Especially Birthday Sundays
A typical Sunday is spent getting ready to have this kids over for Sunday dinner  but this day I had the whole day to  just sit and enjoying spending time and knitting and visiting.

this is to me is a gift greater than anything that I can think of,  spending a day " My day"with my Family and look we had a little knit along as my oldest learns to crochet and is now working on a blanket for JT. Yup it was a good day
my family all under one roof just spending time together.
I didn't get a picture of Son Shayne he spent his day sitting on the computer putting tons of pictures on a memory stick for a digital frame that I got as a gift from my Daughter Autumn.
 Hubby was manning the grill making a great birthday dinner ( Steak a Shrimp )
yeah it just doesn't get any better than this

Sun Pickles

Have you ever made these?

They are sun pickles we were given the recipe last year and were so excited to make them again this year, they are super simple to make and so good. I like to use the bigger pickles that are too big for my regular canned dills.

The Recipe
6 1/2 Cups water
3 1/4 cups vinegar
1/4 cup canning salt
1 tsp. alum
a couple heads of dill
a few cloves garlic

Stir all ingredients together until salt is dissolved and pour over gallon jar of pickles.
Set in sun for 3 days and your done.
Store in refrigerator and enjoy.
