Our daughter-in-law Kristi did some jam making. She made me some special low seeded raspberry jam. She also made marionberry and loganberry freezer jam. Here is the raspberry puree before she added the sugar and pectin.
Here is my special jam - I have diverticulosis - and have to be careful with seeds and nuts - so Kristi sieved out a LOT of seeds and made me 3 jars of jam.
And here is my breakfast, toasted English muffins with crunchy peanut butter topped with my special raspberry jam. Yum!
Up in Corbett one of the homes has a truck with a big boom on it and they put a big flag on it to celebrate the 4th of July. :-)
We went to Costco yesterday to get chicken and ribs for our 4th of July BBQ tomorrow - when we loaded up the car and headed home we noticed the temperature on our dashboard - 100 deg F! But this is wrong, it showed 101 just a minute later but that photo was fuzzy. :-)
I went out last night to get a photo of the full moon but it hadn't raised up over the apple tree so this is what I got. :-)
I just went out to snap a photo of the flag fan banners in the sunshine.
I'm so enjoying our new pebbled and weed free "no-man's-land". :-)
Oh beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain, for purple mountain majesties, above the fruited plain. America, America! God shed his grace on thee and crown thy good with brotherhood, from sea to shining sea!

I'm loving all the flowers on the deck and you can see them all from the inside of the house through the windows in the dining room which is neat.
Kristi went to the grocery store for a few more things and I asked her to bring me some eggs for the potato salad I'm making for the BBQ. I asked for cage free brown eggs and look what she brought home! The coolest egg carton of eggs EVER! It's blackboard art which is really *hot* right now. I love this!
It even had this tiny newspaper tucked inside telling how well they care for their chickens.
Kristi also brought home a pretty patriotic colored floral centerpiece for the table tomorrow and a cake for one of the kids that are coming to the BBQ that is having a birthday tomorrow!
These are the flowers in the bouquet, they are growing on succulents, so we can plant them after the party. :-)
