The sweetest alive

This week

Had the best week.  I worked over 45 hours.  ( that is not the good part although every day I thank God I have a good job).   I was able to spend a few hours with some good friends over lunch yesterday and caught up with what everyone is doing.  Time flies quickly and the afternoon did not last long enough.  But to you Kelly, the lunch was wonderful and I enjoyed the visit. Then I stopped by the Neighbors to wish Anna Marie a happy birthday.  Love Anna and Ed.  They are special people.    Then it was home for canning.   I made 10 quarts of V-8.  Although, I guess technically what I make is V7.  Anyway we  like it.  I also use it to make my beef stews in the winter.   I also had peaches ready so, I made a batch of Peach jam this morning.  The trees are loaded as you can see by the picture, so I will have more than enough to put up peaches to eat and more jam.  My husbands favorite  are peach jam and grape jelly.   Grapes are doing to well this year so we will be happy with peach jam.  On Wednesday, I helped a friend make some accent pillows to go with her new bedspread.  She is a novice sewer and it was very fun to help her make three pillows, using material on sale and some embroidery designs.   We made the three pillows for a little more than the cost of one purchased accent pillow.  She was very happy.  It was fun.   My reward for my hard work this week ( other than the wonderfully colorful jars of food on the pantry)?   I am going to eat Mexican for lunch and then on the the new Angelina Jolie Movie.   Then this after noon I will probably do some studying on my Medical billing and coding class that I am nearly finished with.    See you all soon.  God Bless and thanks for stopping by.   And don't forget, if you are of the mind,to add "In God we Trust", or "One Nation Under God" to your emails, snail mails, and any other means you might have to keep our founding principals upper most in peoples minds.

Your peaches look wonderful and I'm sure taste good too. You will be busy canning etc. However, it will taste so good this winter when the snow flies.

I bought some peaches at Weavers Market. I never made jam but would love to learn how. Guess trial and error.
I love the song, Wild Horses, the Susan way! Beautiful!

Those peaches look so good. I really wish we had a couple of peach trees. I'm a Missouri blogger, too. I thought I'd stop in and introduce myself! Not sure now how I found you, but am glad I did...I'll be back. I was wondering, if you don't mind my asking, if you study billing/coding online? ~Cheryl

Glad to hear you had a good week. It's good to have time to see a movie and eat out for enjoyment after all those hours of work(more than 45 for sure!!!)

You were one busy gal again this week. Glad you got to "play" a bit. Thanks for stopping by on Saturday.
