It’s important for moms to recognize that all the small successes in our days can add up to one big triumph. So on Thursday of each week, we do exactly that.
1) I canned 12 pints of Peach & Rum Conserve and 5 pints of Ginger Peach Jam. Doing this in a semi-timely fashion enabled me to use up about 85% of the giant basket of peaches I purchased, the remaining 15% doomed for the compost pile. This is an improvement over the strawberries, showing I am getting a little better about canning shortly after purchasing the produce.
2) I managed to tame the laundry pile back to a reasonable size. It didn’t help over the past week that all five sets of bedsheets needed washing as well as my summerweight down comforter. Wow–that was a huge pile to fold.
3) The 7-day library rentals were all returned on the seventh day. Huzzah!
