a really nice week. Temperatures here are in the mid to high 70's and the humidity isn't too bad. It is nice to be able to turn off the air conditioning and open the windows. We had some rain and some sunshine and a lovely breeze.
I canned up the rest of the chicken thighs and got five pints. There was enough broth to fill five quart jars. I have ordered 12 lbs. of hamburger to can. That will be delivered tomorrow. Hamburger is the only meat I am low on, although I probably could use some more bacon bits. The price of bacon has gone through the roof here, so I will have to see if Duane can find some bacon ends and pieces at a reasonable price. I was thinking about canning some bacon slices but not at the current price of $6.99 a pound.
My daughter Jill and grandson Zach stopped over yesterday evening. Zach was all excited. He will be spending a week at Airplane Camp. I asked if the camp was just for instruction or if there would be actual flying involved. He said, with a grin, that they would be flying. Zach has taken flying lessons since he was maybe 12 years old. He needed to sit on a pillow to be able to see out the window of the plane. That's no longer a problem for that over 6 ft. tall 17 year old grandson of mine. I told him that when he gets his pilot's license, he needed to remember that his Grandma loves to fly. I'm not overjoyed with commercial flights, but I dearly love a ride in a small plane. He said he would keep it in mind.
David stopped in a couple of days ago. Both of his daughters have birthdays in June and he said he would pick up the cards I had for them so I wouldn't need to mail them. I think he was actually checking up on me. He knew I hadn't been feeling well and he knows I hate going to the doctor, so he sometimes checks to make sure I don't need make an appointment. I just can't get away with anything! He left yesterday for a conference in Canada, having to do with his job at a landscaping company. He said he was torn...he was looking forward to the conference but he knew he would miss his family while he had to be gone.
Nothing earth shattering or exciting going on here in my little corner of the world. I'm just puttering about with the necessary Susie Homemaker stuff. And in between times the sewing machine is being put to good use. That's pretty much the story of my life and I like it that way. :)
