I'm still here

I'm getting my butt kicked by a certain small, sweet someone. I've got tons to do before we pick up our son from his mission, and all the "help" from my little Buttercup slows me down considerably. Not to mention that it is exhausting keeping up with and caring for a small child. She may be the answer to my chronic insomnia. After a summer taking care of her and collapsing into bed early every night so tired that I want to cry, I may have that old insomnia licked.

At any rate, I'm glad I had my babies when I was young.

I have big projects going on that I'm making progress on, and while I have plans for my blog, that is the thing that will just have to patiently sit to one side for now. You know that line about "seasons" in your life...

It's not your grandmother's food storage, folks.

As promised, here are a few of my bottles of strawberry lemonade concentrate. These will go on my shelves (Well, they will if I can keep my family out of them for a bit!) Also in my food storage are a couple cases of ginger ale (bought on sale this week) to add a little bit of sparkle to the lemonade after it's reconstituted with water.

I went to the farmer's market today to see if I could find anything to can. Here's a look at what I brought home:

And now, if you'll excuse me, I have some work to do.
