The Pears Came Home

I have been trying to limit my time online so that I can get work finished around here, before I go to work tomorrow. After running a few errands I came back and got busy working in the house, I took an hour out to walk the dogs and let them hang out with me while I stacked more brush to be hauled off. Tony came back home with several 5 gallon buckets filled with huge ripe pears, I know what that means, time for the home canning of pear preserves and pear butter. I reckon I will watch t.v. and help Tony peel pears. How was your day?

That sounds delicious. Have you ever made a pear cake. My grandma made one when I was living with her and it was delicious. I really love them.

@TRBRocks420 Yes, I take the coke cans and I think its around .40 per pound, they will also pay me for cardboard and paper but I stopped because it takes a lot of paper to make money.

It has been a bad day for me. I had several 5-gallon buckets of pears on my back porch and they have disappeared.

LOL, funny. Or maybe someone read this and stole them and they knew you would think I took your pears. WAIT! Tell me what your pears look like?

My day was tiring. I am still feeling very run down. After I left the neurologist's office I felt a migraine coming on, so I tried to lay down for a bit. Unfortunately it has not gone away yet. Hopefully I won't still have it when I wake up in the morning.
