I did manage to can 22 half pints of corn last week. The rest is going to wait for cooler temps. Just that small bit of canning heated up my apartment and it took hours for it to become comfortable again.
I have to admit that I have caved when it comes to cooking. Usually I cook from scratch or I use my home canned food for meals. But my grocery order this week includes a variety of microwavable stuff. I just can't make myself use my oven or even the burners on my stove for fear of adding more heat to my small apartment. I hang my head in shame. On the up side, I don't suppose that a couple of weeks of processed food will kill me off. The heat might. To redeem myself just a little bit, I did order lots of fresh fruit to counter the frozen sausage, egg and cheese breakfast biscuits and the frozen White Castle sliders. (I love the sliders!)
I have tried unsuccessfully to come up with a way to share my genealogy research with interested family members. I can enter all the information into a genealogy program on my computer, but the only way someone can access it is to have the same program. I have tried using online websites for that purpose, but there are limitations with them unless I pay a lot of money for a full featured setup. I have started a couple of blogs for that purpose only to delete them when they didn't work as well as I hoped. But over the weekend I think I have found a blog setup that will suit my purposes. I spent most of the weekend working on it and will continue until I have enough data entered to see if it works. It is too hot to do much of what I usually do to occupy my time so this is a good chance to work on my sadly neglected family tree.
Jeri called last evening. They arrived home from their Alaska vacation Sunday morning, tired but happy. They took time to drive the coast highway from Astoria to San Francisco.

And I get some halibut!! I forgot to ask her if they caught any salmon.
That's all the excitement here. Hope you all are well and staying cool. :)
