An Update…

It has been quite a while since I have posted! =)

We’ve been good. Our days have been filled with making our new house our home and lots of canning!

We have put away several jars of blackberry jelly, pear preserves, fig lemon butter and fig jam.

I’ve also been helping my brother, Joshua, design and build Mom’s new blog look. You can see it here. We still have a few things to wrap up, but I really love the way it looks so far.

I’ve been practicing crochet a lot lately as well. I will try to post pictures later this week of a few of the projects that I have made. I am hoping to hand make of my gifts for Christmas this year. We will see how it goes! =)

I started piano lessons again last week. I have really enjoyed getting back into piano… how many of you play instruments?

Recently, I read ‘Bleak House’ and ‘Little Dorrit’ by Charles Dickens for the first time. Several people had recommended them to me, so I thought I would try them out. I loved both books, and can’t wait to read more of Mr. Dickens works.

I’m going to close this post with some recent photos from around our home:
