Ok, where is the title of my blog from??? Of course, Simon and Garfunkle! Well, I'm shaped more like a brick than a rock, but hey, don't you like my island? Jack finished it today and I love it.. I love him too! I also painted the other side of the kitchen a bit lighter than it was. Now it flows much better. Only a few little finishing touches, such as trim around the bottom of the cabinets and some curtains. Whew, it took me longer than I thought it would and Jack has canceled all the HGTV so I don't get anymore crazy ideas. (shhh...I already have some more crazy ideas!)
Yes, I know this pic is blurred. It's a pic of crab apple jelly. See the pretty tree below? It's my brother Greg's tree. It sits in his front yard and it has the biggest crab apples I've ever seen! Jack and I and my little great-nephew Ethan picked a peck or more and I promised I'd make jelly. It came out great. We tried some on toast this morning and I'm going to give some to any family that shows up at the Christmas party. I can do that because I made 24 jars of this stuff! That should be more than a year's supply don't you think??? I'm thinking of calling it "E's Crabby Jelly" after Ethan who's not crabby at all, just cute as a button.
Greg, you can brag that you have some super duper crabs here! I mean crab apples!
