So, between Friday and Saturday I canned 80 quarts of peaches. Canning is such a daunting process but it is so much more fun when you have help. This was my first attempt at canning peaches- I hope those internet directions work. And you're laughing because you think I'm kidding?
Saturday morning I arose early (5:30 to be exact) so Jess and I could get our 8 mile run in before I had to teach piano lessons and finish my canning project. Seriously, who gets up early on a Saturday to run... that would be the same sucker who vows never to teach piano on Saturday mornings and keeps doing it!!
I blanched, peeled, pitted, sliced, sugared, lemon juiced, watered, and sealed all the live long day. I was dead tired, but I put in the last jars to be processed at 4pm and Jeremy took over so I could catch a short nap before we went out. I was so tired, but we haven't been out in a while so I wasn't about to pass up the opportunity.
We went to dinner where I 8 (I'm such a geek) too much, but seriously is there such a thing as too much Snow Shrimp? I don't think so. Then we finally went to see Harry Potter... I know we probably are the last people in the country to see it! It was good and makes me excited to get back to finishing #7... J.K. you should have quit at 8 to stick with my theme.
PS... this is post 200!! Amazing that you all have stuck around so long.
