Local U-pick strawberries were 8 quarts for $14, so I headed out sans children yesterday morning and picked 2 baskets full. Discovering I was out of sugar meant canning had to wait until this morning.
11 half-pints of strawberry jam pinging on the counter top. A merry sound indeed.
Next up is Spiced Strawberry. Then the rest are freezer bound.
(my plain ol' jam recipe is the Ball Blue Book one. I'll share the spiced on here if anyone is interested.)

I wasn't planning on disappearing for almost 2 months, but life happens and there you are. However, we are done with school, the basement is clean (10 years of crap in about 4 days. Durn near killed me.) and that is good.
I now present to you a pile of photos, and a few words to go along with them:
The girls dresses I made. And I had them finished the day before! Amazing!
A bit of life that has kept me so busy. There is a reason this little monkey was a number 5 instead of a number 1. It takes the rest of us to keep him semi out of mischief.

A garden post coming once it's worth looking at
Cobwebs in the coop which make me all happy since it reminds me a of a barn. Yes I'm a goof ball.
Hopefully I won't be such a stranger after this, but then again, no promises.
