I always seem to post these after the fact:

Over the weekend I succeeded in turn pears from our tree into delicious pear butter. I didn't really use a recipe and I've never tried to make it before. Tastes a lot like my grandmother's apple butter. Rather pleased with myself. Next year perhaps I will learn to can and make more of it.

LoveHistory, that sounds WONDERFUL. Apple butter is such a wonderful autumn flavor, and I love pears, so that sounds extremely tasty. Mmm!

Not today but I got regular job earlier this week. I've been doing part time jobs where you can go to a new place like every day so I'm glad I finally got regular.

Applying at two places today. Hope one is hiring soon.

We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
