~ Snake in the House ~

I had a very unwelcome guest in the house this morning. I don't like to kill snakes , but this one invaded my territory and had to be dealt with. I went to throw some junk mail away and it was wrapped around the trashcan. I grabbed the broom and gave him a few good whacks. I couldn't take a chance on it getting away , so it's history.
Yesterday I canned 9 pints of grape jelly and 4 quarts of pears. My uncle brought me some more pears this past weekend , I plan to make more preserves from them. What are you harvesting and preserving this week ?

~ Many Blessings ~

Wish we had pears to preserve. I'm still working apples into apple butter and applesauce. These are made up and taking up space in the fridge 'til I can get them into jars tomorrow eve. =)

Great job!

You are much calmer than I would have been. Snakes outside I trap and set free somewhere else. Snakes in the house I would be too busy standing on a chair wondering where the rest of the snake family was. LOL
