After a disgusting wet and cold spring it seems we're finally in for a stretch of nice weather. Of course it gets too hot right away but at least we're into average seasonal temperatures.
Saw the first local strawberries at the market today, so of course I had to buy some and make jam. PBJ just isn't the same without homemade strawberry jam.
My gooseberry bush is overwhelming me with berries; some are split because we had so much rain but still there are tons. I think this year, rather than driving myself crazy with picking the little fuzzy flower thingie off every berry for making jam, I'll be trying gooseberry jelly.
Weight loss and fitness are going well - I've been able to increase my weights over the past week again. That's always a good feeling. And we'll be having a black belt grading next weekend! Unfortunately it's not my grading yet, but I'll better be paying attention since it's likely the last one I'll be seeing before it's my turn next year.
