My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

The Pears were ready .. I was not!

Here they are... or at least one basket full.. Thank Goodness, Clay helped me peel, pare & core them and we managed to get 15 quart jars from a 40# lug. They were kind of expensive this year, but  well worth the freshness...and I  insisted on Bartletts.
 I didn't think they would be ready until tomorrow  but  Surprise! Today was canning day! Don't they look pretty?  They are ready to put on my pantry shelf. Now we can go on our road trip... next week,  so I guess they ripened in the right time...afterall.

About a dozen jars will fit nicely into my mailbox, maybe more...when can I expect the first batch? LOL

Check out my blog next Monday and you will recognize something of yours......

Glad you had fun with the kids!
