More Canning News!
Speaking of the State ACME Tournament, Garry and my games on Saturday are set(unless the rain, which is predicted for all week and most of the weekend comes to fruition). We have games #3 and #4 of the tournament. In our opening game, Lima Shawnee goes up against Perrysburg from the Toledo area at about 5pm, then in the final of the opening days 4 games, I'll take the plate as Piqua takes on Napoleon. This, as I have mentioned, is right in the same time frame as the Lake Festival is in full swing, and the Grand Parade is going on in Celina....the town should be a mess, especially considering the shape the streets(from road construction) and lake(from the smelly algae bloom) are in.
Back to Patricia's canning and painting....
The bathroom upstairs is in a full fledged war zone mode, as she takes the paper and extra glue and old paint off...lucky for me, I seldom use that one....I have my downstairs john, and the shower in the basement. In fact the last time I can remember using the bath/shower upstairs was when I was soaking the pain in my side while in the preliminary stages of my appendix blowing out some 7 years ago...for the most part, the basement shower has been the boys(when they were living at home) and my private stall....nothing fancy or fresh, but it does the job, and you can take all the time you want, with nobody knocking on the door to get in.
Canning wise, she has done up 4 types of jams/preserves, including Peach, Strawberry, Raspberry, and a Strawberry/Rhubarb combination. And this week began on her Green and Wax Beans, and some peas as well....always good eating in the winter months.
