I've been busy

First, DD#2 turned 17 and this is the best picture of her at her party:

(Next year I won't entrust my camera to a teen and count on good birthday pictures.)

Then I've been playing with quilt squares to make some Binkies:

Next, well, we are no longer the Last American Family to Not Own Video Games. We bought a Wii. And I love it. I am terrible at baseball and golf, but you ought to see me box and play tennis! No, not simultaneously.

Then I learned to can. I can. I can can. No, I don't DANCE. But I can now can. It's a messy process that leaves no counter space free.

But the finished product? 19 quarts of nectarines. Aren't they beautiful?! Stop looking at my broken tile. I know it's broken. And one day I will know what I want to replace it with and I will do so!

How did I accomplish it all? Diet Cherry Coke, of course! LOL

You are superwoman! Canning nectarines, sewing baby blankets, and having a teen birthday party all in one day! :)

(I've been busy too, but it's just moving stuff. Hubby suggested today that I can some peaches. Huh?)
