Well -- When I think of summer one of the things I think of is strawberries. I had hoped that we would have gotten enough from our garden but ours did not do well at all. So today, before the season is over, I went and bought 10 quart from a roadside stand. And they were YUMMY!!! Clayton and I did 3 batches of jelly and will be making strawberry shortcake for supper.
1 c. butter
2 c. sugar
1 c. sour cream
1/2 t. vanilla
2 c. flour
1 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
Grease cake pan and bake at 350 for approx 4o min, or until center is set.
I really love hearing the pop of a jar sealing. Always have!!! Its a feeling of accomplishment! That I did it right and the jars sealed, so this winter I can enjoy a taste of summer
Alyssa and Shalene are away for youth camp this week....so they got out of helping with jelly. (Lucky Dogs!!!) Anyway, they didn't take the camera with them, since they will be doing a lot of volleyball and baseball, along with water games. I didn't think it would be wise to send my good camera. SO we are hoping that we can get pics from some of their friends. Hope they have a great time!!!
And for those of you who pray, I'm asking you to remember Steve in prayer. He has been having problems with his eye for the past month and a half. Started out with some blurring in the one eye and then he said it felt like he had something in his eye and sometimes filmy. Well the man didn't want to listen to his darling wife and make an appointment....he was busy and was wishing it would take care of itself. Needless to say, last evening he started having pain and a lot of redness and this morning he was in a lot of pain, not able to stand light or focus. So he goes to the eye doctor/specialist tomorrow to see what is the problem. Pray all goes well (he kindda passes out when he has his eye touched.) He had problems a couple year back and didn't do well with them doing all the tests that touched his eye. Think thats why he put it off with going to the doctor. So we may be in for an adventure tomorrow. Pray the doctor has wisdom and can solve the problem with God's help.
