Partying at the Alford's on the 4th

I think the pictures explain it all. We had great food, plenty of fun and good fellowship.
Thank you all for coming and celebrating the birthday of our country.

Preparing for the 4th

Cute red, white and blue cupcakes that Jennifer and I made.
We got our toes done in red, white and blue for the 4th.

Mosaic Table

Keith laying out the pieces of tile and trying to figure out a good pattern.
Mom when she came over to help me affix the tile to the table.
The table grouted and almost done.
The table and chairs sitting pretty outside. They are so cozy and I love drinking coffee in the mornings.

Carl Gregory Yard Sale

Carl Gregory had a huge yard sale and the city employees were able to get free tables. So we signed on up and got some stuff together. I didn't have much but I made some good money that got me some good stuff for my guest room I am redoing.

Grandma's Famous Peach Jelly

Grandma has been making this great jelly since I was a baby and probably longer than that. So every year when June comes around and peaches are at the best it is always like a treasure hunt to find the best ones. Between me and her looking for the best peaches, I think we went to about 8 different grocery stores and farmers market and could find nothing but small hard cling peaches. That meant we needed to take a road trip. Grandma had to make jelly or the summer would not have been complete for her to not be able to pass the jars out to family and friends. So one Saturday; Grandma, Margaret and me went to Reynolds, Georgia and bought some big and ripe peaches from Taylor Orchards. These were the good kind, they did not stick to the pit so peeling them and mushing them the next week was a cinch.
