My Mom, Ruby will be 94 in December. She is
amazing! Yesterday she helped me freeze corn.
She cleaned all of it and scraped it after I cut it
off the cob. What a huge help to me.
It is amazing how the roles have changed over the
years. I used to clean and scrape it and she cut it
off. But, as we both grew older I have taken on her
jobs and she mine. Life is good!
Corn is a hard job, but is delicious in the winter months.
We froze 21 quarts yesterday. This is about 1/3 of what
we do each year, so another couple of days of hard work will
complete this years corn project. We also make
a wonderful corn relish, but that will be another
Needless to say, I didn't get a card made
yesterday, but made memories with Mom!
