Yes, things are starting to pick up a little here. We have hauled two loads from our Salmon Arm storage down to our shipping container we have rented and parked in Karen’s yard. We are trying to bring anything we want to have in the new home when it is delivered and ready to occupy. Since we can’t get the car up into Bev and Kev’s backyard when it is wet, this seemed to be the best solution. We don’t have a lot of furniture in storage but what we do have we’d like to have right away. We have been sorting heavily as well so lots of stuff that has been in storage for twelve years won’t be making it into our new house.
We took a drive over to Keremeos where there are many fruit stands when we decided to buy pears for canning. We visited several before we found nice pears. In fact, it was the same little stand that Richard bought his peaches from and where we bought ours. Their quality seems to be just a little better and the prices are pretty close to the lower end. Some of the stands had very high prices and the quality wasn’t there. Aileen and Karen made plum jam this morning. The pears will be ready in a few days then we’ll see how many jars we get from 84 pounds.
