Ok so yesterday I was going to go gang bustgers on the bushel of peaches and just get them canned and be done all in one day!! But..
Ya know what they say about best laid plans right?? Yeah that would be just about how it works out for me. And it seems its every time I plan something. Truth?? I think I am just miserably unorganized. Its a fault, and I am owning it, there I said it!!
So my day yesterday went more like this instead:
My youngest 2 slept in, which is epic!! If I could only get them to do that on Saturdays I tell ya!! Anyway I started by putting the canning jars in the dishwasher, and got it going, started collecting pots and such I would need to can the peaches and then it hit me: I didn't have enough lids sooooooooo, once the kids were up I got them dressed, bagged up the garbage that needed to go to the dump anyway and we were on our way. I made 2 stops after dumping the trash and without going all the way into town the only lids I could get were the ones that come with rings so I bought what I could and came on back home but not before stopping at dh's grams who had bags of ice she had been saving for me!!
Once back home I whipped up a quick lunch for the kiddos and I and soon after little miss boo was ready for her nap so I loved her up and she fell asleep fast and I laid her in her crib and got busy!!
I had picked the last of our green beans on Sunday and I knew my mom was coming over after work to pick up her tea so I got busy and snapped and cooked her a big pot of green beans with country ham and the later after the beans and ham were done I added a bunch of cubed peeled potatoes!! Yummy. Then once that was set I started on the peaches. I was able to do 16 qts of peaches yesterday before it was time for dh to be on his way home from work. He called to let me know he was on his way and God Bless him took pity on me and brought home dinner!! Good man I tell ya!!
By the time it was time for bed I was more than ready!! My back was screaming!! The skin around my fingernails is stained and ya know I don't care!!
Oh I almost forgot I had to make dh some potato salad before I was done for the day, they are having a BBQ at work for a farewell to a coworker so he had asked me to make Potato Salad, which I finished making at about 10:30 last night.
I slept good but my back, knees and legs are pretty sore.
Only another 1/2 bushel of peaches to do today then onto the apple seconds!!
So if you need me I'll be in the kitchen!!
Have a great day!!
