I have marked another of Jene`'s things to do off the list and now there is only one... I said 1 more thing that she has to do before school ends. The prom was Saturday night and the kids looked beautiful!
Mark fixing Jene`'s hair! It was an hour of curling and he did a beautiful job!
Miss Priss checking herself out in another mirror after getting home. There wasn't a mirror safe from her reflection!
Ahhhhhhhhhh they look so cute!
Yesterday the boys and I went to the strawberry farm and picked 2 gallons. Today I spent the afternoon doing strawberries up. Freezer jam 6 eight oz. jars, whole strawberries 3 quart bags, sliced strawberries 7 quart bags.
I also did up 2 quart bags of chopped onions. Next week I would like to go back to the strawberry farm and get another 2 gallons to make up another batch of jam and a batch of strawberry banana jam. Also while out that way stop by the produce stand and get some green peppers and chop up for the freezer. I should have picked up a couple yesterday because they were only 99 cents each and that's cheap compared to the grocery store. I did pick up a bag of onions for $1.99 and at the store they are $3.49. Oh yeah I will be storing up on these while I can. I use onions almost everyday to go into something or another... meatloaf, omelets, soups, veggies, and whatever else I may be making and throw some in.
With the rising cost of gas, $3.49 this afternoon, and the rising cost of food I'm going to be doing a lot of freezing and canning this year. Anyone else canning and freezing? What's on your list to do up? I wish I could have found some asparagus to do up! I did find a place about an hour away but they wanted $3.50 a pound and that is about how much it cost at the grocery store. From what I understand asparagus season is in it's last week around this area. I'm going to talk to the guys and see if we can put some asparagus in the community garden for next year. I'll have to do some research on it first. I'm surprised that more places don't grow it!
I start a new crochet class tomorrow and we will be making a shawl this time. It really looks complicated and I think this one will be a challenge. Sammi says it's time to go to a new level and we all think she's crazy. lol
I better get a move on it the night is almost over and I still have a load in the dryer and another in the washer.
