Strawberry Jam Time!

I bought nine boxes of strawberries from our local grocery and spent this afternoon Jamming with my little kiddles. We had a nice little assembly line going. Amy and Michael helped to cut and smash the strawberries. Emily helped prepare the jars, rings, and lids; then, helped to fill the jars and wipe the rims. We ended up with 10 half-pints and 10 half-cup jars. The little ones will no doubt be for gift giving. I just love the little ping when the jars seal. The jars just look so homey all lined up in a row on the counter. It makes me feel like I'm living in my grandmother's days.

Hello! I love it when you all talk back!
Your comments have helped me through the hardest time of my life.
Thank you!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.

Be blessed!
