We made it home, back to canning

We finished our trek across the country on thru Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Mississippi then stayed over night in Mississippi. We spent the night at my friend Debs house.When we left there on Wednesday morning Deb took us to see Elvis birthplace and tour there before leaving there to head on to Kentucky.

We also had breakfast at a local diner where Elvis frequently ate when he was young. Kinda neat to step back in time. I do love visiting the old historical places in the country, most of them off the beaten path.
I have to say I am glad to be back home. We got home to some perfect weather. Temps in the 80's. Deb said when we got to her house that day it was the coolest day they had had all summer in Mississippi.We did have a wonderful trip this week. I got to spend time with the kids and got to pick up a friend in Mississippi and bring her home with me..I had talked to Deb for a couple  years online and we have talked many times on the phone and knew we had a lot in common. It was so nice to finally meet her in person. We got a lot planned for this week too. I am not a souvenir collector but all the way across the states I did purchase a coffee cup from each state. Kinda nice to drink coffee and remember the trip. It really felt good  to sleep in my own bed for a change too. We haven't done any major canning today other then Deb and I started some sweet lime pickles that we will finish tomorrow. Tomorrow we will also be picking tomatoes to make juice and can that. Hopefully we can go back and pick the wild plums that are ripe and make jelly. We shall see what tomorrow holds. Might just hang out an do nothing. So till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
