We be jammin'....

I managed to scrape up a bunch of empty jars from freecycle - Oh, how I love freecycle! If you're not familiar with freecycle, go to Yahoo! groups and do a search for it in your city/state - people posts things that they want to get rid of or things that they're looking for, and it's all FREE! I got a ton of jars like that over the past couple of days - definitely a money-saver.

Anyway, I started working on canning some more jam today, along with another batch of sand plum jelly.

It's a bit sauna-esque in here right now.

Yes, that's a Santa apron that I'm wearing. Deal with it.

I just tasted some of the strawberry jam, and I have to say that it's pretty darned good! :)

And just for giggles, here are a few more shots that need to go into the My Kids Can Sleep Anywhere files...

And now that my kitchen is completely and totally trashed and I can't seem to get anyone to clean it for me, I need to get on that....so that I can trash it again tomorrow.


  1. Awesome! And so cute.

    Yeah, that's the worst when you've trashed the kitchen but you need to use it again, and you're too tired to clean it!

  2. I know. And of course, the dishwasher is full of jars (and supper dishes) and I have to wait for it to finish running. So I actually just washed a crapload of dishes by hand just to get them done.

    My feet and legs are killing me.....but the kitchen is starting to look somewhat better..... :)




I have only two rules - don't reveal anyone's personal information, and be respectful. It's not difficult, honest. Now, go on and play.
