August, 1 - 2, 2015, WI
Sunday, August 2. Yesterday, Pat and I did some shopping in the morning and then made 3 batches of Raspberry jam from berries that he had harvested and froze. We made a batch of plain, one with lemon to make it slightly tart, and one with half raspberry and half cherries. By nighttime, we weren't 100% sure that it had jelled but by the next morning realized that it all worked out as it should. This morning we sampled when I made bacon, eggs, and toast for breakfast. Yummy!
Today was a lazy day. For some reason, I didn't feel real good in the morning, so I got off to a late start. I set out to walk with Frisco around 9:30 but Tracey's Dad stopped by and we chatted for an hour or so. By the time I got Frisco walked it was hot and humid and it just got worse throughout the day. A front is moving through, so we had some pretty good winds but no rain and it is much needed around here.
I was headed to Culvers for an ice cream this afternoon when Savana came by, so we waited for her friend Colin and then the 3 of went for ice cream. Later in the afternoon, they came back and she made us dinner - an Asian tamarind soup that was really tasty. The girl is growing up!
