I will resume regularly scheduled work in progress pics very soon (it doesn't look like much right now, have not inked anything!), but it's been a disgustingly domestic diva-ish last few days. I don't love cleaning house, but I can't have everyone knowing what a slob I am, so there has been much tidying to do in various areas of the house in preparation for holiday weekend shindigging.
I've also been in full Betty Crocker mode. Apron, scarf in my hair, spoon in hand, boiling water on the stove...yeah, the works... Summer has arrived, and brought ripe fruit with it! And when it's ripe, you kinda have to deal with it. If you wait, you waste it. So, since Monday I've made 48 jars of jam. That brings my season total to 75 so far. Apricots are officially done. It was a small crop this year compared to last year. And the peaches and nectarines won't be ripe for another month! The blackberries out along the creek are ready for the first picking, but dang it I can only deal with so much fruit in one week!
Olin, meanwhile, maintains his usual level of enthusiasm. ;-)
It's July. Son of a biscuit. This is insane.
