WIP's and Jam






After the batch of baby boys that came in the spring, it seems that the girls are making and entrance this fall. I have several projects for these babies as well as some gifts that I am working on. This has been great sense it is a 115 and to hot to even be in the pool. The water was 94 degrees and that is even to warm for me.



I got into the habit of making jam at the end of the school year so I could give jars to my children’s teachers with a little note that said, “Thank-you Berry Much”. Well I don’t have kids in school but I try and make jam to replenish my shelves and in the process I give some to my neighbors. This last week I set about making raspberry jam and was able to give a jar with the DVD “Between Heaven and Earth” that answers questions that the community might have with the Temple being built in our area.

I love raspberry Jam. My big canning thing that happens Labour-day is Salsa. I need to replenish my jam as well. So this year I will be doing that.

Mmm that looks yummy. Great work, Mom! I think I might have to snag a jar from the shelf when I come home at Christmas time (if there's any left).
