Can You Do The Can Can??

Well, on top of Thomas' birthday and a few other things I decided to re-finish my dining room chairs (all 7 of them) and do a little canning in the last 2 weeks.

I'll post about the furniture later when I finish the table too. However, I have canned about 15 jars of Zucchini Salsa, 7 jars of Raspberry Rhubarb jam, and 35 jars (about 65 lbs) of peaches. I must say, I'm pretty proud of my accomplishment. I am absolutely exhausted!! but VERY proud! Now on to my next projects...2 quilts and re finishing my dining room table. Oh yes, and getting my kids ready to start school next week!!

Canning...ugh! Good job though. I did my peaches out with Rachel and it sucks doing them, but boy are they yummy!

That is beyond impressive...and a little depressing for the rest of us.

I don't know how you do it all, especially with 3 kids AND being 7 months prego. You really are a domestic goddess :)

SO I am totally jealous -- always wanted to do it just not enough time or desire to get up and get it done. Nice job.

You are such a great example!!! Thanks for doing this, and getting my own butt in gear to can my salsa. YOU are a true friend!!!!!

Oh my gosh Shauna, you are amazing. I can't even get anything done with only two kids! I think you have motivated me, maybe I'll do something productive today now, thanks!

Shauna...you are AMAZING! I missed the whole canning thing this year. I dried apples, but we ate them all the next day.
