When we came back inside he went to work with a construction set that I found for him and I started baking my cakes. I baked 18 caramel, 1 coconut, 2 chocolate, 3 pound cakes and 2 blackberry wine cakes. I finished in time for a late lunch.
G-son and I went outside to play but the heat was too much, making the air conditioned house feel to inviting.
I decided to get a canner of green beans started and after 3 false starts with a leaking seal I finally got this canning season started.
Rebekah and Evy came over bringing her canner and broke beans so we alternated canners and were able to can twice as many jars of green beans as with only one canner. Rebekah brought over supper and Aaron came in so the four of us had delicious chicken breast and some sauteed yellow squash for a nice energy lift to get the last load of beans done. We had a total of 28 quarts and almost a bowl full to add a jar or two of canned squash to to make a full canner load for tomorrow.
This is the easiest canning I have ever done it does make it easier to have someone doing it with you.
After all our canning apparatuses were washed and put away Rebekah left and I went to my office to sit down to give my legs and feet a brief rest and do the weekly paperwork and pay bills.
I spent the rest of the evening icing all my cakes and getting things ready for market tomorrow. The day before the Fourth will be a busy day.
Daughter has had a good day touring Washington DC with her friend Megan. This is daughter in front of the US Capital building.
Good Night and God Bless.
