For the first time, ever, today I canned! Who knew it could be so fun and rewarding!

We made salsa....a lot of chopping but it turned out super tasty.

Yes, even Ralph got in on the act...he really helped out!

My friend, Ruth, who really had a fun time, too.

We also canned strawberry jelly. I have to admit it was off the charts in taste. Ruth said it was like the crack of jellies!

Thanks, provided all the materials.

If you haven't checked out, you host the party, they provide the product. You have a great time and in this case, I learned a ton!

Memorial Weekend

We finally had some normal weather this weekend...highs near 80! It doesn't take much for the kids to be happy, just blow up the pool and they are good to go!

We BBQ'd twice this weekend, both times with corn on the side, first we did London Broil and then Tri-tip.

Now we just need this weather to stay around for a while. I had the heater on this morning, can't remember a time EVER that I had the heater on in June. We are back to overcast and cold today.
