Busy 4th of July

Happy 4th everyone. No plans for major celebrations on the dairy. When you get up at 3:45 AM, you kind of care less about staying up til dark and shooting off fireworks.

Anyway, here's a happy birthday salute to hubby's granddad; he turned 93 today.

Here is a pic of my hard work. The back jars of beans I picked and canned on Wednesday. The front jars I prepped today, hubby helped snap them; they are ready to be capped and put into the canner. I did that earlier, I think they all sealed, that's always a welcome sound; the popping of the lids sealing.

I love the sound of lids popping! LOL! That sounds really weird, but if you do any canning and preserving, it's always a sigh of relief to hear that popping!

Happy b-day to your hubby's granddad!

Happy 4th!

You could have done the fireworks when you got UP. Hey: would Grandpa mind if you put a picture of him on the blog?
