Summer Days


I hope that the days of June where ever you are just
beautiful. We had a bit of rain last night. The breeze is blowing
enough to cause the wind chimes to make the day seem, drowsy
and time to take a nap.

I finally took the time to make jam. I made strawberry and
strawberry-rhubarb.

It was only two batches and I forgot just how much I enjoy
making jam. My other favorite part is putting it on the pantry
shelves.

I didn't open any today. My favorite thing to do is to make
home made bread or yeast rolls on the day I make jam and
we eat hot rolls and butter and new jam.
We had to go to my son's piano recital. So I didn't have time
to make bread.
After we got home from the recital and we BBQed hamburgers
we started playing Skipbo, it is a card game and we played 3 games
with teams and laughed and laughed. We stayed up late
with the kids so it was a really good day.

Summer is such a nice change of pace.
I hope you are having a lovely day too.

  6. I have never made jam. Yours looks so good, I am imagining it on a warm biscuit! Is your jam thick or a little runny? (I like it a little runny).

  7. Your jam looks so good. I used to make many batches of strawberry jams and would give a lot away. I just couldn't bear to see them go to waste. Have a great week Kim. JB
