A New Toy and a new Change Coming

Saturday, July 11, 2020

I enjoy making jams this time of year, but am finding the heat and humidity created in the kitchen just drains my energy level. I found an electric water bath canner at my local hardware store. It was expensive, but after using it for the first time today I can attest to loving it. We have 80+ degrees and 90+ % humidity and the kitchen is NOT stifling hot. Not only that, I am finished in record time. Getting the water from simmer to roiling boil took far less time than on my range. Count me IMPRESSED. Who Knew?

I am now just four short weeks from retiring from the Medical Laboratory profession. I am looking forward to not answering my alarm clock. Cleaning snow off the car to commute 45 minutes in a blizzard will now be a thing of the past. These last weeks will be over before I know it, but now I am getting impatient.

Stay healthy everyone. Wear your mask - it is important no matter what the current White House occupant says.

    emoticon I know what you mean about retiring. I still drive school bus and am not looking forward to going back, that is if we do. emoticon

    Warm congratulations to you on your pending retirement!! I imagine that this last stretch in a health care profession during the pandemic has been challenging . . . and yes, it has to be so nice not to be anticipating winter commutes!!

    That electric water bath canner sounds like a neat gizmo . . . it always seems to me that canning happens at the hottest time of the year!!

    Congratulations on you near by retirement. Enjoy it. It is so wonderful when you buy a tool that works far better that you thought. What a strength saver. Enjoy your days and stay safe.
