put it in a can...

... and save it.

Canning has been something that is so fascinating to me lately.  When we went on our trip to VA and stayed on my sister in laws brother's farm, he canned like 6 jars of salsa in one afternoon.  He had like 10 cans of corn, green bean, pickles and tomato sauce above his kitchen cabinets just sitting waiting for ripeness.  It was amazing!  I thought, how cool would that be to be so efficient that you could grow, can and eat all of your own produce, year round! 



And then, all of these blogs started talking about canning.  Like they knew I had an interest and would want to read about it... So I'm going to link a few for you to enjoy too!

Alyssa at My Husband's Watching TV - posted about dill pickles she canned.

Cheryl at A Pretty Cool Life - posted about her dill pickles that she canned too.

Kim at NewlyWoodwards - posted about her dill pickles as well.

And Kim also posted about the pizza sauce that she made as well!

Here is Kim's link to all of the preserving she's doing.... HERE.

And from Jessica at How About Orange - A little bit about canning that you might not know...

Maybe someday I'll get my act together and start doing some of this but until then, I'll continue to read how everyone else is doing it...



Love the links!

I asked my MIL to help show me how to can last year because I feel it is just a lost art and I want to learn how to do it and show our kids some day! We didn't get around to it last year but are going to do it this year. I am super excited to learn how to do it! It just seems so practical

My mom just started canning a couple of years ago. While its not my thing, I do enjoy getting fresh jam and stuff from her.

New reader:) But I just started canning last summer. We live in Oregon which has an abundant amount of blueberries and blackberries, plus lots of u-pick farms for everything else.

I'll be posting some recipes in the next few weeks.

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
