Thank you everyone for all the good wishes for my injured hand. It's still swollen ( when I fell I landed on it) but I'm able to do most everything now.
Just before the day I fell I had bought quite a bit of fruit which needed to be dealt with. DH offered to do the work and all I had to do was tell him what to do. Hmmm. What's not to like about that?\
Knowing how often peaches that look good don't have much taste I only bought a few. Good thing, since they were not at all tasty. Not wanting to throw them out DH had the great idea to make rhubarb/peach jam. It's a strange combination but quite good.
We had also just bought another 20lb box of cherries. I was able to wash them using my left hand and between the two of us we got those in the freezer.
A bag of apples that were marked down at Walmart needed using up and DH peeled and chopped while I got out the ingredients for apple pies. I wanted one with a top crust while he opted for one with crumble topping. Since he's the one who usually makes the pie crust around here that went just fine. The last apples became apple crisps ( in the ramekins). Needless to say we're still not done eating all this!
So that's what we've been doing while making sure we take time to sit outside on the porch and enjoy the August sunshine.
Thanks for coming by, G.M.
