I made it through last week, and most of this week. Although this week’s been rough. Hopefully that won’t last any more than a few more days.
So, basically, I got everything canned last week that I wanted to can. With the exception of some tomatoes, which we ended up freezing, because I had been trying to do too much and had had a meltdown after several mishaps (lost 2 JARS to thermal cracking. TWO JARS! Man, that was tough). So, last week I canned 4 pints and 1 half-pint of salsa verde (which Dad declared good), 4 half pint and one 4 oz. jar of raspberry jelly. And 1 pint of pickled jalapenos (lost the half pint to thermal cracking). Plus whatever I ended up doing on Monday (see previous post).
I am tired and slightly under the weather (a blah mood), so not a long post tonight.
Over the past two days I have begun working on my piano arrangement of Owl City’s Good Time! It’s been pretty fun so far, but all I’m currently doing is figuring out chords and melody. Once I finish that, the real fun begins – the actual arranging. The chords appear to be basically the same throughout the whole song, and I have the first verse and chorus melody written out. I might post a recording of it when it’s done, if anyone’s interested. But that won’t be for awhile. 🙂
Well, I need to get myself off to bed (too many late nights + too many early mornings + too much sugar = one emotional and unhappy girl), so enjoy the photos.
Till next time!
Last Wednesday – What canning looks like when I have a bad day – all you need is a little Izze! I LOVE that stuff.
