A busy Saturday

Yesterday I had a job list as long as my arm. Why is it that the older I get, the busier I am; I thought things were supposed to slow down! Maybe I'm not old enough yet.

Anyway, because my to-do list was overwhelming, I did the sane (or maybe insane) thing. I did something that wasn't even on the list; I made pomegranate jelly. I wish I could show you the beautiful jars of red jelly, but I broke the camera last week; and I don't see it getting replaced anytime soon. I got my inspiration here at Blackbird Designs. Everything Alma and Barb do is beautiful, and Alma writes such a wonderful blog. And because I am never comfortable cooking without a good recipe, I also compared hers with this recipe because I needed more detail.

Leann at The Old Parsonage had a pay it forward a few weeks ago, and I was one of the lucky recipients! The box arrived this week (on my birthday no less). Like I told Leann, if I didn't know better, I would have thought she'd have peeked in my windows. Everything in the box looks like something I would have bought. Until my camera issue is resolved, I cannot show you my gift; but I want to remind you to sign up for her new giveaway. And please take a few minutes to read through her blog. She will wow you with her creativity. Just looking at all the things she's done makes me want to add to my to-do list.......

You and your job lists. I always hated when you left one of those for us. Dying to try the jelly though! I bought some pomogranite hand soap at Bath and Body works. Hope you get your jobs done!

How nice to get the package on your birthday! Makes it even sweeter, doesn't it?! You sound so much like me. My to-do list is long also. Pomegranate jelly sounds wonderful! Sometimes we just have to throw something in there to make life more enjoyable and not all about the "lists". =] Have a grand week~

I was JUST thinking the same thing as you - why am I just as busy or busier now than when my kids were little??? Maybe because I was forced to actually stay home more and they went to bed BEFORE I did! Now it's the opposite and I just need a breather...whew. I had to laugh though - that's such a womanly thing to do ~ have plans to do one thing and make a 180 and do something out of the blue. Good for you!! ♥

I always distract from my list...sometimes its a good thing...sometimes not! Oh well!
I'll be glad when you get your camera fixed! Soon I hope and I know you do too! I wanted to see the jelly! :)

My to do list seems to have no end. Just when I think I get close to the end, there is always something written on the back.
Thanks for the praise report on Max. I bet that just thrilled your hearts. Thanks Mary for keeping me posted on him.
Enjoy your goodies.
