I didn't walk again this morning. H let me sleep in, so I didn't get up until 8:30. Stripped the bed and put the sheets in to wash. I had every intention to hang them out, but other things got in the way.
H wanted to try making jam out of the peaches we bought on our trip, so we cut them up, sugared them & let them sit. I went back to the bedroom to remake the bed & turned on the light----SNAP, CRACK, SIZZLE----the light bulbs EXPLODED! We keep our bedroom dark-cooler and we sleep better-so I couldn't see. Long story short, we spent two hours on the phone trying to get this fixed. The ceiling fan is still under warranty, so we are getting a whole new light kit. Hunter thinks it may have been improperly wired.
I still had to clean up the shards of broken light bulbs from the bed--stripped everything off & thoroughly vacuumed mattress & floor, then went over the floor again with a wet mop. I washed the mattress and pillow covers. No time to line dry--everything in the dryer. Finally got the bed made after lunch.
Then we both remembered the peaches, so we spent another hour making jam. This is new for us. Both of our mothers made jams & jellies (his all the time, mine not so much) and we had watched, but never really had a hand in it. H found a recipe in an old cookbook that had belonged to my mother, so we went for it. The jam is really pretty, so we hope it 'took'.
