I have been very busy last and this week ,  mostly this week.   Have no time to write letters.  
I have been picking raspberries.   Made 2 gallons wine and canned 8 quarts raspberries, canned 17 pints mushrooms, and 5 pints peas, 5 quarts borsch, and picked two more pails of peas and shelled them today.   Tomorrow I will can them.   I have pickled 14 quarts cucumber dills and yesterday picked the last of raspberries. 

Mom was almost 68 years old at that time.
