I stayed up 'til 11 Monday night to finish my stripey shawl and decided immediately to rip it out. So frustrating to cross the finish line only to face the reality that it was simply too short. Sigh. Frogging commenced Tuesday morning during the kids' piano lessons; I'm laying this skein aside until next week when I'll pick it back up again. The rest of this week's crafting time needs to be spent finishing a little something for Charlotte who is turning one on Sunday! Can hardly believe a year has gone by since her birth! :)
Farmer Boy continues to be my bedtime read. I would love to be able to go back in time to spend a week with the Wilders and help Almonzo's mom make maple sugar and syrup. :)
Dan has been reading to us from Father Brown as well as from Romans 8...
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
~The Apostle Paul, Romans 8:1
I picked up food in jars from the Yacolt library after Sarah shared about it a while back. Each recipe is written for small batches of canned jams, pickles, syrups, etc. -- yes, I'm inspired! We always can lots of jam, pears, and applesauce, we always make a batch of dilly beans and pickles, and last year we even canned our own tomato sauce. But, this year I'm eager to try something new, and these smaller recipes will be perfect for that!
