The post below was originally published June 7, 2021. At this moment, I’m probably basking unashamedly on the beach with a cup of coffee. Hope you’re having a wonderful day, as well!
I need friends. Running friends. Running friends who only run when it’s incredibly hot outside and I can’t go out there to run. Too much? So I joined Strava.
Find me on Strava!
Then I decided to channel my inner woman of the wild and become a canning master! Next up: living in a hut and churning my own butter. Right. I know.
As a writer, grammar and spelling are important to me, as well as consistent fonts across a document. It’s my job. I appreciate when someone’s email signature line is short, concise, and, most importantly, legible! You may be asking how an email could possibly be anything other than legible; rest assured, I’ve seen it all. It’s not pretty.
Full disclosure: I don’t believe everything I read on the internet. Tell me you don’t either. So I did my own research. Turns out it is true!
My dreamer mindset got a little excited, to tell the truth. But as for adding it to the bucket list? No thanks. The part that negated all my dreams was “The real-life walk would be grueling, filled with scary animals and diversely bad weather.” Nope, nope, and nope. Next, please.
I ask you –
What’s your Strava information? Please comment below. I need friends!
Have you ever canned anything? What should I can next?
Tell me something on your bucket list!

Homemade canned strawberry jam is the BEST! It’s the only jam my daughter will eat now. Spoiled? A bit. I recently canned some pear jam but I haven’t tried it yet. A neighbor had bought some pear jam and it was so good I thought I’d try canning my own since it’s so hard to find in the store. Tomato sauce and salsa are both easy to can and really good.
Pear jam sounds amazing! Although I get the two confused, we would have pear preserves as kids and it was the best thing I’d ever tasted.
A couple things here. I grow hot peppers. REALLY hot peppers! So a couple months ago I made some mustard with chocolate habaneros, mango, shallots and garlic. It came out delicious! But it went bad in the fridge before I could finish it all. So I decided to can some! In those very small 4oz quilted mason jars. Also, I love strawberry jam and have made strawberry pepper jam.
As far as that walk, I’d love to maje it, but I’d be more scared of ending up a prisoner of Al Queda!
I’ve never had strawberry pepper jam but I see the appeal – sweet berries mixed with spicy peppers. Yum!
Not to worry. I’d be terrified, too. Lions, tigers, bears, and terrorists. I’ll pass.
