I'm wondering right now why I tried to pack so much into this day. I usually play in our weekly captain's choice tournament on Thursdays. We start at 9:00. We are usually finished around 1:00.
Today when I got home from golf my DH had brought more beans for us to can. He is so very helpful to string the beans . He had already got a large bowl filled with beans, so the two of us finished the stringing in about an hour. I washed the beans a few times, heated them before filling the jars and then used the pressure canner and was able to get the first canner finished by 4:00.
I had been on vacation and had not seen Mom since Friday, July 19. I left home to visit with her at 4:30 and was back around 7:15. We had more beans ready to be heated and put in jars. Those are now finished and I feel like I have had a productive day.
Right now I am also wondering why I committed to the challenge of writing two blogs each week. Sorry, if I have bored you with this entry. Please forgive a tired Sparker!
