Oh I just love jam days. Recently made raspberry/lemon and an apricot.

Your post this morning is sooooo very cheerful and happy, I can't help but smile. Of course, yellow is my favorite color.

We so enjoyed seeing and smelling the rain while in Sri Lanka. Our temps here in Kuwait have reached nearly 125 and that's to say nothing for the heat index. It's hot as heck! I'm sure your jam making ways have turned up lots of deliciousness. Have a great week. Tammy

HI!!!
I wish I knew how to make home made jam...sounds like so much fun....here in HOT AZ...We would have to do this in the fall or winter.....hate to HEAT up the kitchen more then I do!!!When I cook...I cook enough for 2 meals....we eat at home tonight....grab pizza or something tomorrow....then we eat the left overs from tonight the next night...then I cook again.....One of MY neighbors WAY back when we first got married taught me this idea...she was an older Black woman married and a college Proffessor...I told her over and over again THANK you for great advice!!!
They were like grand parents to my kids...one day I will share My favorite Grandma Watson story!!
hugs,
jamie
