U and cool outside today

This picture is one my wife sent me of herself.

I canned 20 quarts of prunes on Saturday.  I still have enough prunes to make five more quarts. I will do that this morning.

I also have my 80 pounds of peaches here.  I could not find any wide mouth jar lids yesterday. I will try to find some at a different store here. 

I will can 10 quarts of peaches and freeze the rest of them.  Frozen peaches taste more like the real peach than canned peaches. 

I am now reading Neptune's Inferno, a book on the U.S. Navy at Guadalcanal during the early parts of World War II.  My next book is The Conquerors, about Roosevelt, Truman and the Destruction of Hitler's Germany between 1941 and 1945.  For some reason  I am getting into World War II literature this summer.

Not the light kind of reading one usually reads during the summer. 

I will try to make some peach jam here too. I got some Sure Jell yesterday but I have little luck making jar that is hard enough to spread on bread or pancakes. 

Getting cooler outside these days.
