A Bit of Silliness

What I Did This Summer

Remember when we were kids and on the first day back to school the teacher asked us to write what we did during the summer.  Well I think we all need a little silliness, so I have decided to tell you what I did this weird, crazy, ZOOM laden summer.

First of all, I made jam. Not just once but 13 times.  I decided in June to visit our local Farmers Market and each week pick out a fruit and turn it into jam.  I now have 13 different kinds. I have Apricot, Red Plum, Black Plum, Raspberry, Black & Blue Berry, Peach, Honey Crisp Apple, Pear/Orange, Crabby Pluot, Apple/Cranberry, Orange Marmalade, Strawberry, and Fig.  I also have 3 quarts of canned peaches and 3 pints of Tomato/Eggplant spread.  It’s been busy summer but I’m ready for sandwiches this winter.

In addition to jam I trained two of my Chihuahua’s, Esmerelda and Charlie, to sing the “Song of our People.” I tried to teach Louis as well, but his idea of training was turning over in bed. 

Well that was my exciting summer.  So, what did you do?

  1. Moved across country in the middle of a pandemic, began working at a new church in the middle of a pandemic. A few weeks after we left Colorado the fires forced the evacuation of Estes Park where we lived for five years. Hmmmmm… oh yeah, and we were homeless for ten days when the rental we were supposed to move into fell through… let me sing you the song of my people 🤪
