"For any would-be-canner who is short on space or time, Preserving by the Pint is exactly what you’ve been dreaming of." 

I’ve met this author! She is so passionate, and has practical advice. If I ever start home canning, this is the first book I will reach for.

I’m in Gettysburg to guest preach. Beautiful day in a small tourist town. I was early and stopped for tea at a local place. I read over my notes sitting on a porch swing in the garden behind the cafe. The church was lovely, too; both historic and well-kept, which is not an easy combination.

Not great pictures of a great show: “Star Spangled Swimmer” by Fluid Movement. So glad we could see Quimby and Pattista! The whole company has been working really hard. Fluid Movement (as a group) is one of the things that make Baltimore really special. And thanks to their aquatic tribute to the War of 1812, now I know why we’re called Mobtown.

If you go, buy tickets in advance, arrive early, and bring: hat, sunscreen, water bottle, your own chair, and maybe a pair of those go-go-gadget shoes with elevators in them.

Music! Patriotism ! Cannons (sort of)! Wonder Women! History! Beauty! Glitter! There’s plenty to like about this show.

Went to a church meeting tonight at a parishioner’s house on the rural side of the county. Was treated to this sunset on the way home. GPS had no idea where I was.

Health Strategy for the Day

Today so far, I have run three miles; had a parfait with plain yogurt, granola, and fruit for breakfast; gotten a mammogram; and made a separate doctor’s appointment. I feel like I should balance the rest of the day by eating Caramel Delights on the couch and reading steampunk vampire novels. I’m not going to, but I should.

Wembley and Mokey admire the Baltimore harbor. You can see the dolphin wing in the background. This is the only picture I got all day that had anything to do with the aquarium. Do you see these big kids?
