Thursday was INSANE!
It was entirely my own fault, but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t exhausted after it was all said and done.
It started out Wednesday…. I was supposed to bring snacks to soccer, so I thought I’d take advantage of the overlapping seasons and buy ALL the fruit that was available at Heeman’s. Two flats of strawberries, 1/2 a flat of blueberries, 1 flat of raspberries and a quart of cherries.
The thinking was that I would take a bunch to soccer and then have some set out for Madison’s rain-chequed grad party on Thursday.
Soccer was cancelled.
But I still had all those berries!
No room in the fridge (as you know).
When I woke up this morning there was already the hint of mold on some…
So I powered out 10 jars of raspberry jam and another 10 jars of strawberry.
Now I have a “special” method for making jam.
I use every dish in the house, every pot, every pan and then I make mess.
The backsplash, electric mixer, stove top, every counter and even the outside of the jars.
So I had to scramble and clean everything up before the ants attacked.
That included washing the walls and the kitchen floor.
Yes, I’m THAT great a chef! lol
Still lots of berries…
Okay – kebabs!
This involved chocolate splattering on everything I had just finished cleaning.
Next up – Maddie’s ice cream cake:

… Then ten 7-year-olds came over and went wild.
A few more gray hairs, dishpan hands, happy children…
and an excuse to go to bed early!
Have a great one!
