Labor day was canning day at our house. I did a half bushel of tomatoes and 4 qts of pears. I am tired of being on my feet and intend to sit and watch tv the rest of the night. I think that I have enough jars on hand to finish the pears that we picked at my dads house. It's time to start cruising the estate sales to purchase more jars. I know I can do better than what they run at the store. It does change my plans for the year as I will not be able to do applesauce or more tomatoes.
Other parts of the weekend were much more pleasurable. We went to an amusement park with the extended family on Friday. The kids had a blast; me not so much. I'm getting frustrated with the family overstepping our rules for the kids. Husband and I have had a serious discussion about limiting exposure if they will continue to overstep our authority.
I have been sewing clamshells. Really loving this project but will need to purchase more fat quarters to take of out to a queen size. Maybe time for a shopping trip next week to locate additional pieces from this line.
