Where we are going camping for the weekend, DH and I decided first thing this morning to wash the truck. While we were out there working, our neighbour came along with her dog, Molly. She is still very puppyish and she was running around our property. She suddenly appeared with, guess who? That poor little squirrel that we had seen the other day. It had apparently gone, laid down at the bottom of one our trees and died. We are not sure if he died from the beating he got the other day or if he had not been well before that. Poor little guy.
I am now trying to get some blueberry freezer jam done as well as some blackberry freezer jam. I love doing this kind of thing but today I feel rushed as we are leaving tomorrow morning for the weekend. Ah, well, you see I'm used to doing things while taking my time, especially since I retired. At least, I'll be able to enjoy my weekend.
DD has forwarded some of the pictures of the quilts that I made for her and her DH, so when I can tie my DH to the computer long enough, I will put some of these on my blog. He loves working outdoors especially on a beautiful day as today, so pray for rain so he can stay in - not really. He will do this for me, perhaps even this evening.
Must get back to my jamming. Enjoy the day!
