Yesterday the boys helped a family clean out the husband's mother's basement. They ended up bringing home a truckload of treasures that otherwise would have been destined for the landfill.
Look at all those jars! The man explained that his mom was a hoarder, and we should dump all the contents because the canned goods dated back to the 1980's. I am thrilled to have more canning jars.
Not only did they bring home the canning jars but we were also given a combination electric/wood cook stove. The electric side no longer works, but with a little elbow grease we could make the wood side usable. The stove would be a welcome addition to the main floor of the house. It's a bit cool up there since we have yet to finish insulating some of the walls.
I've intended on posting some of our recent activities, but canning has gotten in the way. More to come later.
