i've never been too good about keeping a paper journal, but just recently i realized this space is my journal. it captures the little moments, which i like, such as our sunday of making applesauce:
+ a friend dropped by with two big brown bags full of apples from the farm nearby just because. we're blessed.
+ i finally brought out my box of old quart mason jars that i grabbed for $2 at a garage sale last summer. the box included some interesting jars such as a "magic mason jar" like this. it also included original advertisements & a recipe. my life resembles the "creative homemakers" advertisement perfectly, hah!
+ we used our new apple corer (also snatched that up for $2 at a garage sale) with the help of some tools to keep the cutting board in place.
+ the chickens were happy with the scraps!
+ two hours later, we were the proud owners of 10 quarts of cinnamon applesauce with a few apples leftover for pie.
how was your weekend, friends?
