What did you do this weekend?

What did you do this weekend? We made jelly, baked bread, made a bird house and baked bread. Yes we baked bread twice.

First we made peach jelly. We had a lot, I had no idea how much 2 pecks of peaches would be until we had it in our hand :) It's chunky peach and the peaches are from the farmers market so they were super fresh. Here are some pictures of the jelly

All of the jars processed perfectly!!

Then I made some bread with Abbie. What a wonderful thing, we had a blast. Sweet whole wheat. It was AMAZING with that fresh jelly.

I also made challah, not so great on the breading, but yummy.

So lots of pictures, my first jelly, Abbie's first bread and my first challah.

oh the bird house.

Not a post about Abbie, sorry.

I got a ped egg yesterday and I LOVE IT. My feet were so nasty I wouldn't even get a pedicure anywhere ever, but now I don't even need one! It was 10 bucks and I figured I'd be wasting my money, but figured what the hay. I LOVE IT. I thought it would hurt, even a pumice stone or foot file make my feet a little sore, but this was just like rubbing it with my hand. My feet are as smooth as Abbie was the day she was born, ok not quite, but way worth the 10 bucks.

I almost never wear shoes, my are dry, thick and cracked YICKY and now I'd send you a picture of them and not blush.

Anyway just wanted to share.
