Awesome day…

Yesterday started with a lovely, cool one-mile walk. Physical therapy was pretty easy.

I picked blackberries, enough for another batch of blackberry jam. Woohoo! I’ll make it, today. Nice and fresh.

I worked on Tough Luck, untangling some paragraphs I didn’t quite like. I liked the content well enough and some of the word choices, but somethings weren’t quite right. Sentence structure, word choices, point of view, missing details. I’m happy with them now.

I’m trying another new author, and though the book I’m reading had a rocky start it’s coming together as it goes along. Sorry. Can’t shut up the editor. πŸ™„

My sister drove me to pick up my work. We stopped to pick up bread and Sure-Jell, for the reduced sugar recipe. It makes a difference. I have a regular pectin recipe. Here’s the difference:

Regular pectin: 5 cups fruit and 7 cups of sugar.

Sure-Jell: 5 cups of fruit and 4 cups of sugar.

I simply couldn’t do the high sugar with my fresh from the garden blackberries.

Okay, the bread wasn’t for the jam… well, it is, but not until after it’s finished. Having bread in the house is a huge must for my peace of mind.

We picked up pizza for dinner, for fun. Then we headed over to the Chihuly glass exhibit. Wow. Amazing. I took pictures with my little camera until the sun went down. We wandered for hours, and my ankle didn’t bother me hardly at all. My back complained a little but not bad. Woohoo! We ended the evening with Cold Stone Creamery. Best ice cream on the planet bar none.

A truly wonderful day. I am happy. Thanks, God.
