Strawberries once again

Thank goodness, we did it!
I have been draggin for days-fever, cough, headache, body aches, no energy, blah blah blah.
Maybe because Savannah had bronchitis two weeks ago. Maybe because I've been trying really hard to get my far-from-beachworthy self into the gym that i pay for monthly. Maybe because its the end of school & all us moms are wore out...who knows. But I have felt awful. Meanwhile my beloved berry patch is closing in a few more days & I had to get over there.
It was a glorious day-not a cloud in the sky & quite breezy and pleasant for May in Georgia.
We came home & made 2 1/2 dozen jars!!

4 gallons freshly picked strawberries $33
New ball jars, sugar, & sure jell $40
Spending the day with my favorite girls
& making enough jam to last through the year

Went today to my local Walgreens who has a clinic inside--who knew? Came away with a 3 day z-pack....hopefully on my road to recovery. Between that and knowing my freezer is stocked with my favorite treat, I think I am a happy girl.

Happy Memorial Day! This nation is blessed by all those who have fought for our freedom & the freedom in other countries too.

Paige, Thanks for the info on the Walgreens clinic. My husband told me the other night that they are building one near us. I did go to a different clinic today and I must really have a super duper strain because he gave me a SIX day z-pack, an additional antibiotic and a penicillan shot! I am feeling a bit better now those.

Oh and you are quite welcome regarding the tutorial. I enjoyed doing it. Bye the way, your girls look so darling with their straw hats and all. Sounds like you'll be busy canning now.
