The Good Report {Peaches Edition}

This week my sister got the annual hook-up from her in-laws. Free peaches from their orchard! And lucky for me she always includes me in the bounty. So, so, so grateful about that. So we canned 32 pints and 16 quarts. I peeled like mad and she sliced and poured.

Here's what is great about canning your own peaches:

1. Candy sweet. and flavorful. (store bought canned peaches. well, they are nasty)
2. Feeling like you might have something to eat when baby #2 is born.
3. Getting to chat and catch up with my sister.
4. All those jars look so stunning (pics to follow).
5. The hard work always feels good and makes you appreciate what you have.
6. Knowing exactly what ingredients are in that jar because you put them there.

Other good news:
1. Project Runway is now on Lifetime. A channel we get.
2. More sewing. Finished some of the decor for L's b-day party. Not until Dec, but if I don't do it now it won't get done with a new baby.
3. Alone time at the mall. Looking at lovely things. And a stop at See's candy.
4. Home Depot's $3 paint samples. I'm testing "possibly pink" for the sewing room.

On a totally unrelated note, check out the cutest wedding photos ever.


  1. Mmmmm! Bottled peaches are so delicious! That's definitely one great thing to be able to fill your cupboards with!

  2. Love those wedding pics!
