We're home, the camper is emptied out, laundry is going, and these pictures from last week are still making me smile!
Peaches and apricots
2 batches of jam and 1 of chutney
I finished the apricot jam today (it's so yummy - definitely my favourite!) and wiped off the jars of tomatoes so everything's ready to go down on the shelves in the basement. Most of the jam is freezer type so it's frozen and tucked safely away. I think I'd still like to can a batch of pears so I'll try to find a box of those next week and the apples are ready for a day of applesauce making. I do declare, I'm feeling a little like Ma in the Little House on the Prairie books with all this summer work!
This morning I finished reading The Shack (Where Tragedy Confronts Eternity) by William Young, the August selection for our book club. Oh, my - what a read! I'm really looking forward to the discussion this month but I'm still sorting out my own reaction.
"In a world where religion seems to grow increasingly irrelevant THE SHACK wrestles with the timeless question, "Where is God in a world so filled with unspeakable pain?" The answers Mack gets will astound you and perhaps transform you as much as it did him." (from back cover)
