Cooking up a storm !

I have always loved to cook and since I was young, I asked for cooking tools to put in a hope chest in hopes that I would have a family to cook for. I married young and haven't stopped cooking since. I raise the first crew of 4 boys and now they are all grown but wow, what a chore cooking for so many at once but I loved every minute of it. Now with one young one again and a man that I love dearly, things are so different. Learning to cook for a smaller family is hard when your used to cooking for lots of people. I still make way too much when I cook and there is always left overs here. this week the apple fairy's dropped off 6 bushels of apples and I've been canning them since then. Apple pie filling first, then apple butter and now apple sauce. we also started making our own pizza on Tuesday nights since we realized we were spending way too much at the local pizza shop in town. so here is some of our stash for the week. I could really use some more apple recipes too if you have some, leave them in the comments. thanks ~ Lisa

Keeping sooooo busy

As a online seller, you always worry when things get slow yet when they pick up, all life everywhere else stops. Not the normal stuff like taking care of the family and pets but more like getting sleep, finding time to read or take time for myself. It seems that all I do these days is think jewelry and Spider Jerusalem Costume Sunglasses. I swear some day I hope to never see another pair lol I sent out 5 pairs today and 5 lockets a couple of rings Oh my ! I don't mind the business but wow, sometimes it sure comes in bunches. here's what I'm working on today. I'm still not happy with the locket but before I could say BoooOoo I had too many people wanting one. I better get busy ! The abalone is for a ring for myself and one for the shop the flowers are for earrings and a necklace, I need more color in my life and in the shops. the mood stone is for another ring.
