I am a big time Amazon fan.  You can get so many products so much cheaper through them with relatively small shipping fees.  I will be posting about and listing products that I have purchased through them.  I may occasionally include items that are on my with list but I will try to stay towards things that I have already purchased. 

This week I have listed a small batch canning book that I purchased last year.  I enjoy canning and I wanted to learn more about small batch canning as well.  When trying out a new recipe it is nice to do a small batch to see if you like it or if you want to tweak it a bit.  This book has a lot of recipes and there are also some companion books that I am interested in purchasing.  They do new books each year with new recipes! 

I have not tried any of the recipes from this book, however, I have gotten ideas from it and have used that knowlege towards my canning.  If you are new to canning it is not safe to experiment with recipes until you know what is safe to do and what is not.  I like to tweak recipes to my liking.  I will be posting more about canning in the near future.  Apple Butter season is upon us and I also like to do apple sauce.  If you are interested in learning the steps to canning let me know and I can be more informative in my posts.

James and the Giant owie

Man. . . . if it's not one thing it's the other! James has had a really bad ear infection since Thursday.  He has been very doped up all weekend because he has been in so much pain.  He has had a blessing (for those of you wondering) and he is doing better today.  He no longer looks like the living dead. So, hopefully he won't be struck with anything else. (Knock on wood)

James is going to be starting an Etsy business soon so we will keep ya posted on that.

I know I haven't posted in awhile.  If you had not already heard James broke himself a few weeks ago. 
A ladder decided to slip out from under him and he pulled some tendons and has been wearing a boot.  He had a Dr.s appt. Wed. and is healing good.  He still has pain but is doing good.

They boys are enjoying school and have been having a blast having playdates with their school friends! Eva has adjusted to being the only kid at home and has Rose for a playmate.  She has fun playing with her friends as well.

We have been having fun at the pool after school with the boys and during for Eva.  James took a day off Monday because of his foot hurting and went to the pool for wome aqua therapy and we ended up getting charred. 

We are all doing great and I will try to start posting more regularly again!
