It's the little things...

That make me happy... My latest craze is canning. I've had the yearning to do it for a while now, but finally succumbed to my desires this summer. I've canned salsa, strawberry and peach jam, grape jelly, and strawberry/lemon marmalade. And where is my favorite place to do this fabulous addiction? The cabin, of course! My heart skips a beat when I hear the "ping" of the jars - as they are setting. I made some more peach jam this weekend! Yummy! I recently bought new flour and sugar containers and they make me oh so happy! I actually get giddy each time I come into the kitchen and see the pretty glass containers full of baking possibilities. It doesn't take much to bring a smile to my face! I'm always happy when C comes into the kitchen and tells me that we need to make cookies or bread or some other necessary treat. This morning he walked in and said, "Mom, you know what we need to make??? Cupcakes! Strawberry ones!!!" Well, since we were out of strawberries he settled for banana/chocolate chip bread. However, he still insisted that we use the birthday cupcake holders. I think they taste even better that way!

I am coming Oct. 25th and I would like anything chocolate! Does that give you enough time to plan? I think you have enough sugar and flour! ;-D
