Have you forgotten??? ENTER NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't forget! I'm doing a giveaway for my 100th post, drawing tomorrow! You have to go HERE to read what's going on, and to enter!!!!

It's canning season again!!! Guess what we were making today - that's right, strawberry jam! We made SIX batches of regular, and a batch of no sugar added. It smells like strawberries in here, and sugar, and hot water - the last batch is in the hot water bath right now. Phew!

An update on Mom: She went to her regular doctor today, and is officially off work until Tuesday. Of course, she's hard at work HERE - but I'm being a harpy, so HOPEFULLY she's not working as hard as she would...! THANK YOU SO MUCH for praying for her!

I'm sorry I haven't been around a lot this week; trying to get caught up, teaching a class, and still dealing with church fallout has been REALLY stressful. But I really want you to enter the giveaway!!!! I need the strokes. ROFL!!!!! GO ENTER NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Glad to hear your mom's doing better, Lori. It's hard to keep a good woman down, even under doctor's orders!

I can smell that strawberry jam from here. Mmm.

Yummy...Strawberry Jam!!! My Favorite! :-) How nice that you canned already.

Watch over your Momma...they can be a stubborn lot I'll tell ya'! Mine was the same exact way. I would literally take her by the hand and sit her down, make her and I some tea and then she would rest. That generation really have ants in their pants!!! Good golly. ;-)

I love the smell of strawberries... and peaches. I've never made jam or canned anything for that matter. How long have you been doing it?
