It's been a week of #(*&)(*@# and I'm really glad that I survived. Too much work and not enough time to do what I like. What I really like...no, what I LOVE is going to the hills and going huckleberry picking! It is the most relaxing thing I've ever found. If everyone could come and pick huckleberries with me, there would be world peace. Seriously, it's that awesome.
Some of my favorite things from this very busy week that helped me keep my sanity:
#1: I enjoyed a visit from Kim, she took a really cute picture and you can go to her blog to see it. I couldn't figure out how to do the timer thingy on my camera so I took this one of her:
She was so nice and fun. I was so happy to be able to finally meet her.
#2: My blogbook! I found the idea from Sondra and thought that was so awesome that I copied her idea! I think I won't scrapbook again.
Sondra puts lots of pictures of her family, events and recipes. She prints one monthly and it is kind of a family journal for them. Thanks for the great idea!
#3 Favorite thing: A new Ball Blue Book of Canning. Weird, I know but I love canning books and websites and this book is like the Urim and Thumum of canning. Can't live without it.
#4 Favorite thing: Our Ward Cookbook that we've been working on for over a year finally came! I love Ward Cookbooks, they are my favorite. I love getting tried and true recipes. This is the second book we've done for the ward. They are a lot of work but so worth it.
This was the one that we did 5 years ago...
It's been well used.
#5 Favorite thing: HUCKLEBERRIES and stained purple fingers!
Purple heaven! Life is good!
Note to self: Don't work 7 days in a row again!
