love in a jar.

I spent a couple of days at my parents’ house this week celebrating my dad’s birthday and canning peaches with my mom. We canned 37 jars (quarts and some 1.5 pint jars), and my mom let me have 18 to hoard savor here at the lake house. (We ate the contents of one of the jars with breakfast on Friday morning.)

Because we don’t have class on Labor Day (which hasn’t always been the case), I was able to hop in the car on Wednesday afternoon and be there in time for dinner! Boh and I returned on Friday for an afternoon meeting, and because I don’t have to get all of my grading and prep done for Monday, I still have time to enjoy the sunshine AND get both dissertation and teaching work done before Wednesday. Or at least that’s my hope.

Happy Labor Day weekend, everyone! (And stay tuned for more knitting!)

  1. Those look delicious! I’m hoping to do some canning tomorrow, too, but the more I read about it the more convinced I am that I’m going to kill someone…

  2. Ooh, what a treat! I wish we had a Monday off to look forward to, but … as I’m not teaching, I shouldn’t complain. Happy labor day to you and Boh!

  3. Oh yum! It’s been a banner peach year for sure. I’ve been freezing some for pie etc… during the winter. First time trying this.
