As I type I’m listening to the “pop” of canning lids as they cool and seal! Id thrown some fruit in the freezer this past fall, waiting until a “better time” to make it all up into jam. Today Kristy and I made Lemon Pear and Spiced Apricot Peach. MMMM! We will enjoy some as either a tea time or bed time snack!
Ken (Our PrairieFrog Principal) had suggested we take a couple days off school to focus on Hearth Keepers University. There were still several things Kristy still wanted to learn as part of her apprenticeship here, yet time was getting short! As per his suggestion, we canceled school the past two days. Yesterday we made use of two turkey frames and made up bunches of yummy soup, and today, as you already know was jam day.
This afternoon while Kristy runs errands, Ill be just kicking back with my small folk. Kendra is eager to read her new Dick and Jane book to me, and Kaira wants to work more on more potholders with her loom.
Tonight we have a special going away dinner planned for Kristy. I’m sure it will be bittersweet, as we are excited for her to continue her Hearth Keepers University Studies, but she will be greatly missed here!
