Ruby Tuesday - In A Jar

Wild Rose/Geranium Jelly
A little bit of summer captured in a jar .. to be savored during the long cold winter to lift the spirits of my family while waiting once more for the rebirth of the land.

Ruby Tuesday Curios

A bit of ruby cheer while waiting for spring.  I can always count on my little glass fronted curio cabinet to lend some color to brighten the day.

Happy Birthday Nathan .. God's Gift

Our youngest turned 15 years old today.  If you don't know it .. he was given a 2% chance of survival at birth.

It's a miracle he's growing up so strong and healthy .. full of life .. and a blessing to all who know him.  Thank you Lord for the honor of being his mom. 

Life would be many blessings short without our Gift!

Instilling A Love For Cooking & Healthy Eating

... with your children.

Nathan is at it again .. learning how to cook!  He so loves to crack eggs, stir them with milk and make him some good eats (French toast) from the kitchen.  If you have a picky eater .. try including them in the cooking .. or growing/gardening process to make healthy food choices more personal.  We are looking forward to the 'dirty' work in the garden now that winter is almost a memory :)
