24 jars of heaven in my freezer

My day looked like this. Woke up at 8:30- AWESOME! Kids slept all stinking night, in thier own beds, without waking us up...Hallelujah! Cleaned my hubby's shower, put away laundry that been lurking for a week or so, vacummed, tidied up the laundry room, did dishes. (yes! that felt good to be productive for an hour or so)

Went to Kunze Farms for my fresh strawberries...oh baby, de-lish! Yesterday and today I've been on my maiden freezer jam voyage, and I must say, thanks to Mere's freezer jam, I'll never buy the store stuff again! mmmm. My boy was a happy helper (because he ate more than he helped) PB &J with this stuff is HEAVEN.











picked up some fun fabrics today for Nursing Covers...Can I just say that I could spend HOURS looking at fabric? The colors, textures...mmm. They inspire me to be creative. BUT...with two grouchy kids in tow...not so much. They totally wrecked my fun. This is why, when I picked a color for my wonderful pedicure on Sunday...I picked OPI's "More time for Me" just cuz I liked the name. :)


Here's one to entice you to check out my e.k. inspired blog...
It's a sassy spunky lavender, plum, olive, and chocolate SO cool.

Then, I bought a new phone for home (apparently I talk to much. I used 1700+ minutes last month on my cell. Vonage, here I come!) Then, we stopped on the side of the road so Preschooler could pee in a water bottle.

then we raced home so I could change out of my sweats and burn some Brauts, then off we went to church for a meeting. whew. I'm tired.

Glad you got your jam made! It feels so good to see that in the fridge! So easy. Wish I could conquer all the other stuff you did. My stacks of laundry and other stuff keep sitting on the floor. You have inspired me. :-)

the kicker is... said...

You are so freaking funny.

Hope that water bottle isn't your Nalgene!!

I'll be staying at Jane's - out near Gresham - for most of the time. (At DeAnna's the first night or two - it's closer to the school)

Wow! you have been productive!

Freezer Jam is on my to do list for the weekend. We hate store bought jam!

i'd love to hear what you think of Vonage......

Hope you guys have a great 4th!

You're amazing! My strawberry jam is locked up in the freezer too. Nothing like home made! It must be all the lovin that goes into it and the fact that you know every ingredient that does into it.

yumm, yumm on the jam. I've only done a little bit, but will do some raspberry too. I'm a little overwhelmed this year with moving. Canning will have to take a back burner. Makes me sad.

Love that fabric!
