Rumors, Car Treats & In a Jam

There was a rumor over at RQ last week that the CC@@ might possibly be matching up to the end of November, but she really couldn't rate it very high at this point in the game so I'm trying not to get too excited. Now this morning I just read that she feels pretty confidant that they will at least get to November 21st......uggg.....still only at 7 days worth of referrals. Hope and pray it will speed up for December. Still hoping and praying also that my travel mates have the flag lifted from their file so that they don't have to get pushed into the next group.

I love leather interior but man it is HOT in the summer, so I decided to cover them and take them off for the winter since the seats are heated. I got the mats and wheel cover also. I love'em and they will match my yellow car! Like my Vanna White? Jac you are too sweet.
This week marks my 1st week with my new hours, I am taking Saturdays off for the first time since high school!!! I spent the better part of my day making strawberry jelly from the berries I picked on Wednesday night. I made 2 batches and Sunday morning when I got up I picked up a bottle and it didn't gel :o( I went on one site and it said wait two weeks to see if it would gel and if not to recook it with 2 tbls of lemon juice and 1/2 pkg of gelatin, another site said use it as a strawberry syrup for pancakes which sounded really good! I think if it doesn't gel I may recook one batch. Anyone ever have this problem before? Any secrets up your sleeve?

Nice Mats!!! I have a soft spot for lady bugs !!!! I've seen these too and wondered how they would look in my car!!
I have made jam for the first time completely by myself....and I used Garden Fare....can't believe how easy it was....this was for freezer jam!! but strawberry syrup sounds yummy too!! will it go bad if it doesn't set?? i like it runny ....it is more like crushed strawberries that way.
Do you remember my attempt at mustard pickles??kimmer

Each month it seems to be the same.... a very good rumor only to go to the toilet quickly.
no point in looking anymore really, but I can't help myself

The mats and seat covers are all very cool! Homemade jam is great too. I was always told if it didn't gel or seal to use within the week as syrup or dessert topping - whatever - as long as you either use it.

I try to stay away from RQ these days as she starts off with so many LID's covered and then it's only a paltry few days.
