From What Am I Doing To I Know What I’m Doing

It is morning Cindy has gone to put in a long weekend of work, I have fed the cats, emptied the dishwasher, made coffee, and almost swam to the garage to get jelly jars.  Yep it is raining again and will be all day.  ( I’ll play weather man now.)   The temp. is 58, the wind 4 mph, and you can get pretty wet going to the garage and back.  (But you already know what my mom says about rain.)

I thought I would show you my Trick or Treat monstrosity.

Nothing like the picture which shows my creativity.

It also shows I have slipped to a minus 7 in crochet work.  But enough of creating things I’m going to do something today that I know how to do can jam.

But first a few more decorations.

Under the light on the back porch

Also out there.

There will be a larger one added that will sit on a caldron

That one isn’t in place yet.

Inside  This on the file cabinet.

Another tree with small figures.

Yesterday Cindy and I went to Walmarts  for sweat pants to replace my lighter pants for the cold weather.  I have gone from a 2xl down to a large so I needed something smaller to keep them up on my hips.  I now have 6 pairs of assorted colors to hang in my closet when I can find room.

Still working on See What I Have Done but It was only part time because of the wreath.

Well it is almost 10 am I have jars to wash, lids to sort, rings to set out, my canning equipment to set up, and my berries to start thawing.  Yep it is Red Raspberries today.  At least I know how to do this.

Have a great weekend and do something nice for yourself.


34 & 1/4 th cups of Red Raspberry jam complete.  Now I still have a cooking pot to scrub out, equipment to pack away, and labels to make but hey it is still a good days work.

I’m going to check on my strawberries to see if I have to buy more to finish off my rhubarb for Strawberry Rhubarb jam.

That’s it for now.
