Millions of Peaches, Peaches for Me

After throwing a big ass hissy fit at the grocery stores around here for selling me peaches that won't get ripe no matter what and actually returning a $5 package of apple-like peaches, I asked Husband to take me to Porter, the Oklahoma Peach Capitol to buy a few of the fruit.

Not one to do things half way, this happened:

1 1/2 bushels of peaches (seconds) for $60
Yeh, what was I thinking? I canned for four days straight... 2 types of jam, peach pie mix, canned peaches and peach chutney. I canned like I had three teenagers in the house. I lost 3 pounds even with all the sampling. Secretly it made me happy too be so productive...
I have three more cupboards just like this. Ha

Hi! I am Nerissa, a Filipino living in Italy.
We just started a website dedicated to the lives of all those living in a country other than the one where they were born. Thru PeopleAbroad.org we intend to increase connections, awareness, and understanding among people.
We would like to ask you to contribute as an author to the website by writing even one single post with photos and/or videos about the region of the world you live in. Your post can be externally linked to your personal websites, blogs, Facebook pages, Twitter account, and/or anything else you like, in order to promote your own activity.
If possible, we would also like you to write your story (bio - where you live and how you decided to live your life abroad) – example: https://www.peopleabroad.org/nerissa-filipino-living-in-italy/.
To become an author, it is not necessary to live in a different country from where you were born, but simply to know a bit of the world by having lived, studied, or traveled abroad.
Please, sign up to our website at https://www.peopleabroad.org/register/ and send all your files with things you would like to share (your story or your posts) by email to people(at)peopleabroad(dot)org. In case of big files, send them by WETRANSFER.
Since this website is still under construction, we do not have yet made it available to search engines for indexation. So, to access it, just type www.PeopleAbroad.org.
We are just starting and that is why your help is essential. We would love to see you onboard!
All the best,
Nerissa
