Yesterday was occupied with making grape jelly. My husband paid a visit to the family farm this past weekend where he picked grapes that grow at the end of the barn. Some of the vines are seen here early in the spring before leafing out. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of the laden vines.
This year was a bumper crop. I made two batches, one of which didn't set properly. So I now have both grape jelly and grape syrup. So it goes. Oh well, the syrup will be great on pancakes or over ice cream. It still tastes delicious! The labels are compliments of How About Orange, which you can download yourself here.
I'm introducing a new category to the blog which I'm calling WHAT? It's for things that strike me as utterly ridiculous. Today's entry is a $199 toilet brush called the VIPP 11. So yes, it is sleek and shiny with a nice design. But for almost $200 it had better be able to clean the toilet by itself! Wait, make that the whole bathroom. I can think of better things to do with my money than that. It's not the kind of thing I like to leave in sight anyway. A toilet brush as a status symbol? No thanks. Not that my blog is sponsor worthy, but if it ever is I'm safe in saying they won't be contacting me now, will they?
