It CAN Be Done

This is my second or maybe third season for canning. I still don't own any of the big required equipment needed for the process, but because of some great neighbors I have been able to complete the processing. This season brought lots of salsa, spaghetti sauce, grape juice, apple juice and apple sauce. By far, my favorite had to have been doing the apple juice and apple sauce. They look so beautiful in the jars and taste even more delectable and having a friend to help you out is fun and better than going at it alone.

Here's to You, Children of the Seventies

Going through my children's clothes I found this suit that my mother saved from when my brother was little. This is a classic pin striped suit. I have two other great outfits, but I'll save those for another day. People must have thought I was going crazy, having dressed my son this way for church, but his Nursery Teacher thought he looked very handsome. I'm pretty sure she has children who grew up in the seventies. May good fashion never die.
