Today I made blueberry jam. I didn't have much luck last year with my cherry jam, so I was a little worried, but it seems to be OK. All the jars sealed and the jam firmed up nicely. The blueberries are from Florida, but they were very sweet so I thought I would give it a go. Now I have my confidence back so when local blueberries are ready I'll be ready too.
A completely unexpected simple pleasure today was learning that the fragrant tree in our front yard is actually a linden tree. I have read about these trees for years and wondered what they looked/smelled like. For the last three years I have had a huge one in my yard and didn't even know it! A neighbor informed me that the blossoms are good to make tea with, so I picked a large basket-ful to dry.
My kids are playing soccor all weekend. All weekend. I'm not sure how much in love with that I am. Probably less than 50%, but there's no way around it unless it pours down rain.
Have a great weekend!
