lost the touch

Yesterday chris and I set out to take care of the carrots from the garden that have been sitting on our counter for a week. I was thinking I would can them, then we decided to freeze them. I ran down stairs, and got 4 bags of frozen strawberries out of the freezer (?????), this lead to needing more fruit pectin set stuff, so a trip to the store was needed. We ended up at a farmers market type stand buying a bushel of apples. So, we made applesauce!

I pulled lots of no brainer stuff while we made and canned the applesauce. I grew up doing this with my mom, but I have never canned w/out my mommy. I read the directions for the canner, so did chris..... we did stuff we didnt have to do... filled the jars too full.... amazingly, the jars sealed!!!!! they over flowed while they were being processed- but they still managed to seal. So, we have some delicious apple sauce for the winter! (after we clean the goopies off the lids)

Oh, LOL. I made breakfast yesterday. Pancakes, eggs, and sausage. Oliver ended up getting 3 eggs, and 6 pancakes because I was such an air head. I dont know what was wrong, but I was clumsie, like it was my first time in the kitchen. It wasnt even funny.

This morning, before work I made the freezer jam. I've done it b4, but yet again, I was like a fish out of water.

What is going on???? I am normally quite talented at this stuff. I had my coffee both days, cant blame that. for the first time in a week I got some sleep (baby b only woke once both nights, as opposed to every 1-2 hours like he had been doing while sick). Maybe it is the 10 months of constant bad sleep affecting my brain? Dont know... but I want that touch back!
