Crafting with food

Joining Frontier Dreams for KCCO.


Raspberry peach freezer jam. Need I say more?? Deliciousness! I am not sure this will make it for long, I will have to hide a jar waaaaay in the back of the freezer. It is such a lovely jam, looks like jewels.

Weekending


The weekend was such a relief from a trying week. Coffee in the early mornings with my sweetheart, a bit of work in the garden, and then a crazy bunch of visiting with family. Saturday was nuts, but fun. Sunday was a relaxing break before the start of another busy week.

*Gratitude Sunday*



Joining Wooly Moss Roots for Gratitude Sunday. Sunday's heartfelt tradition. A time to slowdown, to reflect, to be grateful. A list of gratitudes.

~ Early mornings in the yard
~ The lovebirds enjoying the sunflowers
~ Evenings in the neighborhood pool

I know Soulemama has stopped, but I still love this... A single photograph from the week. A moment I wish to pause, savor, and remember.

From the Garden



This is the stuff gathered from the garden... in ONE day! Loads of goodness. Meals planned around the yum!

crafting... sort of


I have put the sock aside, because it was just going no where. AND I have managed to go thru my yarn and patterns and found something I want to do... now to just get started! Haha
Still reading Buddhism for Mothers.. I tend to only have time to read in the early morning hours, the time between watering the garden, hanging the wash, and caring for the hens... all before the kiddies get up.

~ Still somewhat cool morning. Being able to sit outside in the mornings, sipping iced coffee while the wee girlie plays in her sandbox has been such a blessing.
~ The hens starting to lay eggs! such cute little eggs.
~ Evening at the public pool. Love swimming and playing with the kids in the nice coolish water.
~ The A/C! LOVE IT!
~ Time up north camping with the family.
~ Our homeschool group
~ Freezer jam and gluten free biscuits

In the Garden






The garden is doing lovely, getting lots and lots of squash. So much that we are giving it away! Mint has gone crazy, which is so nice, and some how even though things are heating up the basil is holding its own. And the chickens! a few have started laying, so we are getting wee little eggs! Happy Dance!

knits and reads


My oh my, this pair of socks is never ending! I am still on sock one! how will I ever make it through sock two?? It isn't the pattern, it is me! I am just not "feeling it". Maybe I need to set this project aside AGAIN and try getting bit by the knitting bug while making something else?
I am reading (again) "Buddhism for Mothers". Such a gentle, wonderful, reminder book. Glad I pick it up again.

Food crafting





All sorts of berries have been on sale lately, so the kids and I picked some up and made triple berry freezer jam. Yum yum! tastes oh so good on gluten free biscuits!
