Hit the Ground Running

You might know that I’ve been out of the country for a while.

It’s been a relief being home.

My snuggle intake has doubled.

It’s nice.

However I’ve also been pretty stinking busy.

I’ve made 3 batches of salsa so far.

That’s 15 jars.

I’m down to 4.

Mostly because I like giving them away.

Here’s the thing.

I’ve also smiled a lot.

But you see that apron?

It’s pretty nifty looking huh?

It was a Christmas gift and it was from a really great new cousin of mine.

Best part?

When you’re chopping all the tomatoes and getting tomato juice EVERYWHERE it isn’t ruining my clothes.

Okay so I don’t always craft in the best clothes.

But it’s nice not to fall asleep with crusty tomato juice on your skin.

But it’s all worth it.
