My summer projects:
1. Make strawberry jam
2. Sew lots.
3. Keep garden weeded.
4. Bible Study with the girls.
5. Learn to spin.
I realized that today if I didn't do some serious weeding, I was going to fail on this list. I went outside even though it was hot, and weeded the garden.
I bought strawberries yesterday because I planned on replenishing my store of strawberry jam. I was tired but I thought that my strawberries wouldn't wait. So I got out my things and started making jam, as my son said, " I have spent my morning "jamin" in the kitchen.
This morning before I started chopping weeds, I picked my third basket of tomatoes.
The only thing on the list that I haven't done yet, is I haven't learned to spin. My DIL brought a beginning book so I need to sit down and read it before she brings her wheel. The kids have been taking swimming lessons and right now it is fun for them to be in the swimming pool. I do mean to get to that next though.
I was pretty happy to see I am doing what I wanted to do this summer. I have had a nice summer so far.
The two oldest that live here have been getting ready to leave for camp in the morning. The are going to be camp counselors. I will only have my two youngest home this week. My daughter was house setting next door and I think I got used to the kids running over so it might be a quiet, lonely place next week.
I am glad I have garden work to do to keep me busy and lots and lots of sewing to do.
Have a wonderful weekend,
