Under the Elephant Ears



I haven't posted a shot of Ellen in awhile. Here is one I took a few days ago. I parked her under the elephant ears out back.




Other news:




On Sunday hubby's aunt gave us a small bucket of peaches. So for the past couple of days I have been peeling and slicing them as I get a chance. This morning I processed a few of them into peach preserves. This is the first time I have ever canned any kind of fruit, so I am not sure how they will turn out. It's just peaches and sugar, so it wasn't that hard, in theory. However the recipe said they were supposed to foam, but they never did. I finally got tired of standing there stirring, so I just chucked them into jars. Obviously I need to learn how to distribute them evenly between the jars, but they sure smell and look good anyway.

As long as they taste OK, I shouldn't worry. They look really nice. Mmm, peaches and ice cream, with raspberries.

OK, that's my diet wrecked. :D

Awww. Do you have any nicknames for Ellen? I used to be my dad's "peaches and cream girl" (not sure why. Well small children are often sticky, as well as fuzzy ....)your picture combo here made me think to ask about E's pet names.
