Starting the day with a great big HAPPY BIRTHDAY for eldest son, WES!
Fifty years ago today at Brent General Hospital in Detroit, Michigan this gentleman his appearance making one of my fondest wishes come true–to be a momma! Now for what appeared on his and the other children’s cake for years. Happy Brithday! ( I really wasn’t the brightest bulb in the package!!! )
Yesterday was the first productive day in a long time. First I managed to tear up and box most of the cardboard that had accumulated in the mud room since before my surgery. In the process I broke the blister that the tape had made on my ‘clipped finger’. At least I didn’t pick it with a pin. This resulted in a little bigger on the bandaid but no additional pain.
I spent yesterday morning putting ham and bean soup made from the Christmas ham into jars and freezing it. There was a bowl each for our lunch and five pints in the freezer.
In the afternoon I peeled, cored, and sliced all but two of the apples from the peck we had got free with the half bushel we bought before Christmas. I then canned 11 pints of Apple Pie filling but lost one when boiling them in the canner. Needless to say I was ready for bed before 10 pm and was satisfied with my day.
I want to thank my other son, Les (SEB) for moving the phone and the rocking chair back into Momma’s Corner it was a delight to see it there!
Again Happy Birthday to my son and a very Happy New Year to all of you!
