What Happened To Yesterday??

Yesterday went by in a blur. We got up late, took a walk and then I mowed the grass and weed whacked. Nat came up for lunch and I fixed some of our friend Brian's shish-k-bobs on the grill.

After lunch I decided while cleaning I would cook the chokecherries I picked to get the juice. Nat had brought me my friend Jill's Nurti-Steamer and I wanted to try it out. If you don't know about chokecherries--they are tiny little fruit with big seeds so you don't get much in the way of juice or fruit even when picking large quanities. But, they have the most incredible flavor and color, a deep, deep red. This Nurti-Steamer (if I had a camera) is like a giant double boiler with a collection pot. Water goes in the bottom, the juice collector with a hose attached to the outside for filling jars is next and the fruit goes in a steamer basket at the top. The fruit is steamed for 1-2 hours and walla--you have juice. Canning chokecherries before meant I turned the entire kitchen and all my utensils red--the fruit had to be smashed through a manual crank juicer and it splattered everywhere. I love this Nurti-Steamer--may have to get one!

About 4pm I left home to meet Marjean and Debbie to go to quilt guild in Livingston. I don't know these two ladies very well and it was fun to get to talk to them on the trip over. Last night's guild meeting was for the purpose of putting together five quilt tops for Quilts of Valor. I will post more about this organization when I get my thoughts together--it is an awesome endeavor.

So, it was almost 10pm when I got home last night, thus yesterday's blog is today's.
