We've had a good deal of rain this week...
scattered storms that seem to have decided not to scatter.
Indoor activities have won out over outdoor chores.
The garden is loving the moisture,
and I am loving not having to water it!
The weeds, however, are loving it even more...
and let me tell you... I'm not a fan.
But growth is growth, and we cannot pick and choose what grows.
So, with the prolific produce comes prolific weeds.
The rain has given me a chance to prepare for this weekend's wedding shower.
I'd love to show you what I have been up to,
but a certain bride might happen to read my blog and so I cannot give surprises away.
You'll have to wait for Monday... no sneak peaks.
I can tell you...
I have been spending most of my time here....
cooking, baking, cleaning up (I need a sous chef!),
baking some more.
Yesterday I turned the first picking of gooseberries
into a yummy jam.
This might just be my most favorite jam ever!
It seems that the gooseberries have enough natural pectin that no added pectin is necessary...
just gooseberries, strawberries and sugar.
As for the weeds...they continue to get bigger and bigger.
The up side to that is... the bigger they are, the easier they are to pull.
Wanna come help me?
