Black Berry Jam and Why is Sadie in the Bathtub?

I thought I'd show you a picture of the 8+ jars of blackberry jam I made last night. All eight of the cup sized containers I made to give away or save for later sealed! Happy Dance! I also put some jam in a jar I cleaned and reused that we can eat right away. It looks like we'll get a lot of blackberries this year. Even though the vines are taking over our back yard, I asked Hubby not to trim them back too much until after the harvest. Most of the blackberry vines are thornless, but we do have some which were mislabeled and scratch my arms as I pick them. But the bunnies still like to eat the leaves, so they get a treat as I clear out the brambles.

Lest you think I'm all Miss Perfect Homemaker, I do have a question. Why is Sadie the hamster on the edge of the bathtub?

I just can't figure that out. Photography son and his wife took Ms. D to the zoo today. Mr. I had a friend overnight, and then this morning another friend came over, and another, and another... I also have a ton of candles in the bathroom which weren't there when I picked up the dirty towels this morning. It's the only room that doesn't have a window and can get dark. Hmmm...noisy boys, candles, dark room, hamster? I just can't figure it out!
