Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

Yes, 2020 will be a year that we long remember. It was a roller coaster ride, no?
But the Lord is still in control, and He brought us through. 
Many of us endured hardships along with the blessings.
But then, Grandma always said we must take the bad with the good.

Today, I'm going to count my blessings. 
And it will take a while, for they are many.
And then I'm going to pray and ask God to favor our leaders with wisdom, our citizens with backbone, and our pastors with endurance.
I'll look in my survival pantry with a grateful heart. And pray that I won't use it much.
I'll look into my family's eyes with love. And pray that we will be safe.
I'll look into my heart and weed out the negative, the unjust, and the hurtful.
And pray to be more like Him.

I hope you will join me. Let's choose to be grateful.

... lids! lids! my kingdom for some more jar lids!!

(With apologies to Shakespeare, I'm reworking the line from Richard III.)

We have picked and cooked our scuppernongs and our muscadines with a Granny Smith apple sliced in, and I pulled out the old family recipe . . . it's an easy one: equal parts grape juice and sugar! For instance, this time I had four cups of juice, so I added four cups of sugar. Toss in a "pat" of butter to cut down on the foaming.

Cook (at a hard boil) until the juice reaches the jelly point, and then pour into clean jars. I got five jars of jelly from this batch. 

I'm guessing that many of you are experiencing the same shortages that I am . . . it's harder to find jar lids than it is to find time to quilt these days. (Grin) That's one reason you see four jars there. It's difficult to find paraffin wax, too, and that is what I would have used to seal more jars. The fifth jar of jelly went in the fridge to be slurped up on low-carb muffins! (Yeah, I know, the sugar in the grape jelly kinda messes up the low carb count of the muffins. C'est la vie! Gotta have some goodies sometimes!)

How about you?
Have you found jars or lids lately? If you did, where did you find those treasures?
