Strawberry-y

library-1893How was your weekend?  Things were pretty quiet here.  I really wanted to go strawberry picking but somehow the stars just never aligned.  It seems to me like last year the season lasted for weeks and weeks and this year it was over in the blink of an eye.  Last year we picked strawberries, cherries and blueberries.  This year, summer barely started before strawberries and cherries were already out of season.  Anyway, since I didn’t get to go picking I decided to settle for making jam from farmer’s market berries.  I made 8 jars of jam from the recipe in the pectin box.  It’s yummy but even so I don’t like jam that much, I don’t know what I was thinking about.  Anyone I haven’t already foisted a jar upon is welcome to one (or more!)   Erin, that means you!  Now I’ll totally know the reason if you cancel on me Friday.

Chase’s school is closed this week following last Friday’s end of year party.  I dreaded going to this party all day but it turned out to be one fabulous party.  I know where all the tuition money goes now anyway.  Jugglers and pony rides.  I’m sure this week will prove to be interesting while we scramble to figure out what to do.  I always wondered why my office has a tv and dvd player but right now I’m saying don’t look a gift horse in the mouth, right?  

I cut a pair of Puppet Show shorts and started stitching a felt hot dog for the play kitchen.  I would have liked to get more sewing done this weekend but alas that’s the way it goes sometimes.  

Oh, and I went looking for the ice pack tonight and couldn’t find it and this just happened to be posted today over at disdressed.  Awesome.
