My Dad is recovering so nicely! He has days where he's really weak, but then there are days like today, he's been walking up and down the street! Not without my Mom or his walker, though. I am so thankful that God is helping him through this! My niece went home from the hospital the other day, and is staying completely out of the heat. She can't get outside as long as things are so warm. Everyone is coming here for the fourth, and she will be able to, just as long as she stays inside. Her Mom's birthday is tomorrow, so we are meeting at a local restaurant for lunch. Wow! Two days of celebrating! Oh well, that's what holidays and families are for! I'm glad we all live local, so we can get together often!
I made twelve half pints of blackberry jelly over the weekend, and am about to use the last of the juice. I should get at least five jars out of it. The blackberries are burned up! I don't think there will be enough to do anything with after this. I'm kind of glad, cause I seem to find chiggers when I pick them! A little cow-itch too! My nectarine tree looks like it will split in two any second! It's loaded with almost ripe nectarines! We're waiting until they are a little more ripe before we pick them. I hope the jelly will taste good! I wasn't very pleased with the way the plum jelly tasted. It didn't taste "plumy" enough for me. I'm glad things are settling down so life can get back to "normal"! Ya'll have a great fourth and I'll talk to you later! Blessings from Bama!
