I had a lot of tomatoes to deal with today but Elvis was on it and ready to help. I made him a personalized apron and his own wooden spoon. He used Kate's stove and borrowed the canner from my zibbet shop.
This is how his canner compares to my full size one.
I had both red and yellow tomatoes so I made sauce in both colors. Usually I mix the two but I thought the yellow would be really pretty in chicken or turkey based soups.
Elvis was a lot of help and now we are both tired...canning is hard work!
I've been happily married for 33 years to my high school sweetheart and we have three great kids. All are young adults. I'm currently working part time as an instructional assistant at the local elementary school. My mini life is especially important to me because it takes me away (better than a bubble bath!) from the stresses of real life. I've been involved with mini-ing since the late 1980s with a break for about 10 years while my children were young.
My faith and my family are very important to me. I am so thankful that God blessed me with the gift of creativity!
