Where have I been?
Well. . . . . my cherry tree exploded. Well, not literally, but with cherries. So, I was picking them last week and begging people to come pick them and take them. And, between yesterday and today I made 120 jars of bing cherry jam. Plus I dried some and made cherry raisins. I'll bet you can't guess what our neighbor and work gifts will be this year?! It is nice to know that this is done for December, I may or may not make zucchini bread like I normally do but we'll see come December. Right now I'm done, everyone is getting a jar of jam and that is it. My whole house is sticky and it was so hot today. But it's done. Now I just need to get the house clean before Saturday for our annual Fourth of July party. We have people come and we provide the meat, buns and drinks. Everyone else brings a salad or dessert and fireworks if they want to and we light them off. It's a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to it! My birthday is on the sixth and this is kind of my unoffical birthday party every year. The kids can't wait and tell me "Mom, we light fireworks on your birthday every year right!" They have it mostly right I guess. Well, that is all, I'm going to go take a shower and go to bed. Good night!
