Look at these beautiful pears! We went down to Jessica’s over the weekend and Saturday we went to David’s Moms. She gave us lots of beautiful apples and pears. We have 3 boxes of apples and 1 box of pears. Thanks, Donna! I think we will start on the pears today. I am thinking I will freeze them. They are very juicy pears. I’m not sure if they would hold up to canning them. The girls had a great time swimming Saturday afternoon in Donna’s pool. Daniel is making great progress learning to swim (with his lifejacket on). He can move all around the pool by himself and of course does not want any help. We also enjoyed hamburgers on the grill with corn on the cob and mac and cheese. We had a lot of fun but it was soon time to come home. Time goes so quickly.
It was a very pleasant day here yesterday. Sunshine and nice temperatures. Upper 70’s to low 80’s. After church, we came home and did our lesson for Sunday night class. I spent some time reading outside on my swing. For our evening meal at church we had polish sausage with peppers, onions and potatoes, sauerkraut, corn pudding, rolls, cucumbers, tomatoes, cole slaw, peach pie, pound cake with ice cream and brownies. I think that’s all! Really good food. We have decided to do II Corinthians next. We are almost finished with I Corinthians.
Grace took this picture the other day. I think she did a good job. Yes, Jess, I know you do not like butterfly pictures.
Enjoy your day and God bless.
It sounds like a great weekend. I think pears are one of my favorite canned fruits, but they sure are a lot of work. Our tree does not produce a whole lot. Last year we were given as many pears as we wanted. I ended up canning 48 quarts, 9 quarts of pear sauce, and some pear butter. Plus, when my parents were here my dad made a couple of pear pies.
We need to pick in the garden today and then finish up the corn that we didn’t sell. Have a great day with your family.
Yeah, everything was good …except for the butterfly. See ya Thursday. Love ya
