on the stupid oven while I was getting ready to...
Bottle what ended up being 17 jars of pears!
Beautiful, ain't it? Brent's mom reminded me that the next step is now to see if they taste good. Oh yeah! That would be nice, wouldn't it?
I took about 10 trips to, sorry to say, Wal-mart, to get supplies for the canning. (Sorry Mom, Fred Meyer didn't have what I needed.)
Now, there are 50 lbs of peaches in my basement that need to be made into something. And, some blackberries in the fridge as well.
I also got to hang out with Court and the kids. (Thanks for the help with the pears)
I got a ride to pick up the fruit with Laura and the kids. (Thanks for the ride)
And I have eaten out WAY more that usual because I just don't want to cook for one. And I don't really want to go to the store either.
So, no, I have not wasted my time alone. But I am so looking forward to him getting home tomorrow. It gets a little quiet around here. Not that he's much of a talker, but ... he's still nice to have around.
