I finally pulled myself together long enough to take a shower and then ran out to the local orchard for some fresh fruits and veggies. While I was there I saw the most beautiful cherries just begging to be put up as preserves.
Can you guess what I just spent the last hour doing? But you know you have no strength when you pit your cherries while sitting down in a chair and have to take a break in between prepping the cherries and making the jam and then again before you clean up the kitchen.
Who would guess that cherry juice squirted in your eye would burn like the dickens!
