I don't know where the day went but it sure went fast!
We got our monthly grocery order today and I have a bunch of 20 pound boxes of fresh fruits to freeze, along with a 20 pound box of fresh broccoli to blanch and freeze for the winter. We'll be eating a bunch of the fruit fresh but I plan to make applesauce with some of the apples and Cardamom Pear Butter with some of the pears, as well as freeze some of the nectarines and peaches for smoothies.
I love having frozen broccoli on hand for soups during the winter and this is the first time I ordered this much at a time. It ought to last the winter.
I'm super excited as I ordered a new camera this week -- a fun, orange Canon PowerShot SD1400IS won out after a quick search on-line. I ordered it new off Ebay. Some of my sisters have Powershots, which ultimately sold me on it. I wish I had it now so I didn't have to wait to start monkeying around with it. I almost feel like a little kid, I'm nearly giddy with excitement.
I really wanted turquoise or aqua but I'm excited about orange since I pretty much love most bright colors. And, apparently, I have a 'thing' for orange lately.
The camera I've been using is about 8 years old or so. It was my mom and dad's first digital, a Minolta Dimage Xi, and I've appreciated having it! But I know it will be fun not to have to 'try' so hard to get clear shots anymore. Maybe I won't have to hold my breathe and freeze in place so much for each one. ;)
I can't believe tomorrow is already Friday. Time's been flying by since school started!
