|Over the weekend he made strawberry jam and a first, smallish batch of apricot. Monday night I helped with a large batch of apricot jam. We had time to chat while we stirred and watched our respective pots of apricots - a companionable way to pass an evening.|
With an unexpected free week, having finished my schoolwork early, I've made a start on my list of things to squeeze into the break. (classes start again 23 August)
My hair has been trimmed. Cleaning has commenced. There is a Clep scheduled for Friday.
The bed in the spare room has various piles started with things that will make the trip with me on Saturday, and a list of things I need to pick up while in Fort Dodge. Naphtali's recent post reminded me to charge some batteries, not that there will be anything as interesting as the streets of NYC to shoot this weekend, but one should be prepared, n'est ce pas?
