Something Messy....Stress Free!

If you know me, you would know how much MESS stresses me out.

A.L.O.T.

I love to can peaches, but I absolutely HATE the mess it makes!
Last year, I was pretty much at my wits end and I decided I will not can anymore because I can't handle the messy stress.

Kid you not. I am THAT BAD.

Troy came home last year near the end of my canning process and asked why I don't can OUTSIDE?

Outside? You can do that?

Fast forward one year and this is what I did this past Saturday....



OUTSIDE! Yay!



I was even lucky enough to have a hubby that wasn't working much and was NICE to help me do it all!
Even Taylor got in to all the action.

Then she got bored and made a sign that we had peaches to show all the passing cars....

No one stopped, but she thought she was pretty cool. :)


When we were done, we took the hose and washed it all down.

AND My house stayed clean......Heaven.

You won't find me canning inside my house again.

Great idea! I hate the mess that cannning makes as well. I think we are a lot alike in that aspect. :) Glad it worked out for you.

GREAT IDEA! And good job helping out Troy. What a trooper :0).

Yes, Sara leaves the 25th, so you are just fine. If you'd like to jump in her suitcase too, that would be just fine too. In fact, why don't we just plan on you doing that. I'll make up an extra bed.

Carrol: I don't think she would have a suitcase big enough! Plus she would have to pay for extra weight! But if I could get away with it, I would do it!

I dropped the 'present' off at your Mom's house this morning....hoping they got it :)

Love ya tons girly!
