Adventures of a Modern Day, Middle-Aged Hero, on the Glory Road(to family security)


There are worse smells to come home too....

Earlier in the week, SWMBO got a wild hair, and after a morning of home schooling ran down to the local U-Pick Orchard with the youngin's...and possible bit off more than she could chew.  She came home with nearly 60 pounds of peaches and gala apples, forgetting that there were doctor appointments, and a night of dinner out with my management team at work that were going to interfere with her canning plans. 

Finally, today she was able to get her prioritize straight, and while she still has more progress to make, she has cranked out Strawberry Peach Jam, Spiced Strawberry Peach Jam, Apple Butter, and the current batch is peaches in syrup, with several jars of apple sauce to follow that, and maybe some canned apples(for crumbles and pies!)  I was brave to enter the kitchen to give her a kiss when I got home, then rapidly got out of her way.

Needless to say, the apartment smells AMAZING.  Too bad for you, internet visitor!
