Today in numbers

37 pints of peaches cooling on my counter top, plus three pints of jam.

3 jars broke while being processed (all were wide mouth is this common?)

13 sticky kitchen towels waiting to be washed.

2 soggy sticky potholders waiting to be washed.

Dinners put into the slow cooker this morning - ZERO! (We ate mac and cheese, peaches and frozen yogurt for dinner, LOL!)

60 minutes downstairs without tripping over kids.

Number of naps the baby took today: 1 (really it was quite short for her too.)

95 minutes putting the baby to sleep tonight - shared with hubby.

27 peaches left on my counter to make more jam.

6 layers of peaches in the freezer

Oh, seemingly one hundred times yelling, "Please get along today!"

2 kids that will get alot more of Mommy tomorrow than they did today!

8 sticky feet, 1 sticky floor and one tired Mommy!

Wow, did you really do all that by yourself with 2 little kids?

You are amazing! I do my canning only with the help of my many big ones!


Butterfly Mama said...

Yeah, it's hard to make an assembly line all by yourself!

But like I said the kids were pretty neglected!

Hi Heidi!!

Wow! Canning can sure be a lot of work and mess, can't it?! I must say that making fig jam last week was WAY easier than all the tomatoes and sauce I canned last month. And thankfully I had my mom to help me out (in her kitchen even!) when I canned peaches.

I hope you have a lovely day just focused on your kids again. :)

I would love to do some canning! Although, your post does make it clear how much work it is. :) I'm going to put that on my list for things to try next year. Along with my planning of a square foot garden next year too. Ha!

Oh my goodness! But I bet it was all worth it with that yummy jam!

I had an applesauce jar break this year. What a sticky mess.

Great job. Those peaches are delicious!
