Sun, Rise, Sun, Day
Woke early this morning to make blackberry-raspberry jam with the thrice cleaned berries I picked yesterday from our berry patch.
Another perfect batch! The line up of jam jars makes me feel rich.
Not So Good News:
Earlier this week, my friend and publisher (Foothills)Michael Czarnecki's family homestead burned down.
We're going to be having a fund-raising event at Writers & Books on Sunday July 22. beginning at 2:00 p.m.
Hope all Foothill poets will turn out for this reading. Thankfully no one was hurt in this fire, but they lost everything. Hopefully with our widespread Foothills community, we'll be able to help them get back on their feet in no time. There will be more fund-raisers in the upcoming weeks, if you're unable to attend this one.
There is fund-raising occurring in Corning for the Carnecki Family. Donations (goods and money) can be sent to 171 Cedar Arts Center, 171 Cedar Street, Corning, NY 14830.
or directly to: Michael Czarnecki, PO Box 68, Kanona, NY 14856
or Paypal. Go to Send Money and then put in Michael's email address:
then amount, click on personal tab and then make sure gift is checked.
That's it. ( These are Michael's directions ).
Please help them rebuild and come back stronger than ever. I sent my check to the Foothills P.O. Box listed above. Thought it was the quickest action at this time.
