It’s important for moms to recognize that all the small successes in our days can add up to one big triumph. So on Thursday of each week, we do exactly that.
1) I operated a gas grill for the first time in my life and didn’t nuke the burgers or, more importantly, blow up anything.
2) I blew the dust off my Ball Blue Book of Canning and Preserves and made something of the blackberries (jam) and peppers (salsa) while my stash of produce was fresh.
3) I made the girls each a simple patriotic sundress for the 4th of July, using material I bought for the purpose last year. Picture to follow.
Apologies for the blog silence. It has been pretty crazy around here and the blog slipped down a bit on my priority list. I still have plenty to say, however, and I hope soon to be back up to speed with the posting.
