The last 3 days I have spent canning apricots. The yield = 14 qts, 37 pts jam. I made plain apricot jam, apricot blueberry, apricot raspberry and Splenda apricot, Splenda Apricot Blueberry jam. I was on my feet solid for 3 days. My feet and knee are killing me. I plan on soaking my feet tonight in a vanilla foot bath!
Last night instead of going to bed early, I ended up cleaning house and making beds until 12:00 (started at 10:30). The mission team from Stand True (the mission organization my daughter went with at the beginning of the summer) came in at 3:00AM. They originally were going to be here Tues evening, then changed to Wed mid-morning. I was going to clean etc Wed am, but their plans changed and they called late Tues night and said they would be driving though and get to our house at 4:00am. I was able to go to bed and sleep-- my daughter woke up for them and showed them their rooms.
It is fun to be able to get to know the people she served with.
Because of all these things I haven't been able to do my oxycise the last couple of days, but I am glad to report that I lost .75 pounds last night at TOPS weigh-in!! I am not sure how much exercise I will get this next week, because Stand True is here until Sun, then I will be picking peaches from Dad's tree and have to get them worked up before my surgery next week.
I do know, however, I will get a 2 mile walk in on Saturday as the Colorado Christian Women Spark Team is meeting at my house for a hike and picnic. I'm excited to meet some Spark Friends!!!!!!!!!!!
