Jam, Shells, and Floods, Oh My!!
So this must be one of the simplest ways to feel like a genuine homemaker. Throw some ripe strawberries in the food processor, throw some sugar on them and then the pectin syrup. (You must be good at throwing, though.) The littles and papa love it and there is a huge sense of achievement upon opening your freezer door to see those jars of goodness staring back.
Our post beach activity. I mean, really, what is one to do with bags and bags of collected sea paraphernalia? So we decided to give them a coat of paint..or two..or three..or..you get the point. They turned out lovely. Thank you Atlantic.
And, finally, the rains came down and the floods went up here in Jacksonville. (The view from our driveway). Okay, so I'm a bit dramatic, though during the night we really expected to see water seeping in to soggify our place of residence. We allowed tardiness to work and school to enjoy a morning without rain and a family breakfast.
