This is what I have been doing instead of cards
Well after 3 weeks with his family in Colorado, one week with my brother in British Columbia and 1 week with our family in Alberta I am trying to get back in the swing of things. Not an easy task. lol
While we were in B.C. my sister-in-law and I picked at least 40 pounds of blue plums. I didn't know that 40 pounds of plums could be so much fruit. I brought back 120 pounds of apples. I also raided her garden for beets, carrots, pumpkin, potatoes, corn and onions. Once that was done we cleaned up the garden for the winter.
This is only a small portion of the canning I did in the 3 days before we went to my daughters. There are beet pickles, pumpkin for freezing and beets for freezing. Also froze 8 freezer bags of plums. Didn't even make a dent in the boxes. On top of that I made 6 pie crusts, one pumpkin pie and one apple pie for an early Thanksgiving and early birthday celebration for Joy. Because she works those days, we celebrated early.
I also took a picture of the birthday card I made for Lacey and forgot to post before the holidays. Now it is on the camera but I am having a problem taking photos off of the camera.
Ok that's it me for this time. More on my adventures with canning in the next post (if I can get the pics off the camera).
Have a Blessed day.
