Prayers please?

This morning, I'm going to get mom and take her to the surgery center for a little surgery on her left bottom eye lid. When she fell last fall, she hit on the left side of her face and right under her left eye. So when the scab was all gone, it sort of pulled her eyelid down a little, enough to be noticeable. So went to her eye doctor and they scheduled a nip and tuck surgery. Supposed to be there at 11 this morning. While they are doing this, they'll repair her tear duct. She will be so happy to have that done. She's tried the plugs but they just don't work on the eye. I'll spend the night with her, then hubby will stay the day tomorrow with her. Then Saturday, she starts teaching her exercise class at her church! She's got 14 people so far signed up and she is very excited and a little nervous. So 2 prayer requests here. Eye surgery and class. Thank you all!

I made kraut Saturday. I don't really know if this should be called kraut or just fermented cabbage? I added Chioga beets to it. I love this stuff.

This is the coolest bell. It's at the gate by the apple trees. It's starting to get some moss growing on it. Cool.

See y'all later! Have a good Tuesday.

Prayers are going up. Now share how you made the cabbage, please.

Thank you Kim. She made it through and has such a good doctor.

I just cut fresh cabbage and put it in the food processor. Then put it in a big bowl, add salt and start pounding away! I have a wooden pounder that is perfect for this and fits in a wide mouth jar. So you pound and pound and add more salt til it starts getting some liquid. Then put in jars and pound down til you get a little ways to the top. Make sure there is liquid over the cabbage. You can also add beets or anything really. Then put a paper towel with a rubber band around it, leave on the counter at least 3 days. Taste it every day and make sure the liquid is covering.

Good luck! Let me know how yours turns out.

I will be praying for your Mom.

Funny, I'm also fermenting cabbage right now. First time ever making any. Don't like sauerkraut though. I have a love for kimchi. We didn't have all the ingredients for kimchi, so I made a Latin version, we shall see how it turns out.

I just had some for dinner. I'm not a fan of kimchi yet. But I love fermenting things.
