The perfect activity for a rainy weekend in the autumn... canning. There's something about storing up food for the coming winter months that makes me recall my inner animal instincts. Now if only I would be allowed to just eat a lot, build up some fat stores, and hibernate for the winter... that would be the life. Actually, there is just something so beautiful about the pretty colored food canned in those glass jars all lined up nice and tidy. Wow, I've become my mother!
