This Is The Pits: Kidz In The Kitchen

It’s apricot season.  Oh yes, yes it is!

All over Kamloops there are apricot trees dropping their fruit – aaahhhh!!

I love apricots.  Love!  I grew up with a tree in the back yard and was lucky enough to get to learn the art of canning from my Mom at a young age.  I remember standing at the kitchen sink with apricots up to my elbows washing and pitting and shoving them into the hot jars.  It turned full circle when she helped me can my own apricots in my own kitchen when I was pregnant with my eldest (actually, I guess that isn’t full circle – that will be when I can for her.

Mop It Up!: Norwex Mop Review

Now, I will admit that I am not the best housekeeper in the world.  I tend to let messes get… well… messy. I’ve been known to just leave things until I really can’t stand it anymore before I clean it up.  As such, don’t look too closely at my kitchen floor.  I’m a corner-sweeper.  You know?  The kind of person that just sweeps the crumbs into the corner until the end of the day when I pick up the dust pan and get rid of it?  Well, I guess I used to be a corner sweeper.
