Busy times

Alan is home for a week and of course he is so excited to be able to sleep in a real bed! We have one that is 7 feet long and so he really fits. But inevitably his back will hurt for a day or two as he begins to stretch out and so Sarah being the kind helper she is, thought she would try to crack his back...Oh MY, that was enjoyable to watch. !
Natalie , Sarah, Seth and I have been canning everything we can get our hands on. We made the best Strawberry jam out of tomatoes! Yes it is true and delicious too! We have canned loads of salsa, zucchini and pickles. I love the satisfaction of this time of year!
