Setting Up Safe Haven and Strawberry Jam

Been busy here ... as you can imagine ...
with homemaking chores, and homesteading routines,
and whatnot.

At this point, the focus is just upon emptying boxes.

I'll figure out where everything will "best go" later.

Here is my safe haven.

And here is my Strawberry Jam-Making Session.

The jam didn't "set" all the way solid ...
the only thing I can figure I did wrong was
I added six cups of sugar, and not seven.

It still tastes delicious ... as you can imagine.


  1. I can just imagine how good that jam tastes! You have about as many books as I have. Keep trying to weed through my shelves. Hard to part with any though.

  2. Home-made strawberry jam, yum, yum!!

  3. To little pectin or sugar leads to runny jam. So put it on ICECREAM!

  4. Are you still liking the snow?

  5. Where are the snow pictures or are you frozen in a snow bank??

  6. Knock-knock-knock...hello?


    KNOCK!-KNOCK!-KNOCK!...HELLOOOOO!!!!! ANYBODY THERE?!?!?!?!?!?!!!!!!!!!

  7. Frann, no, I am not like the snow anymore ... I figured "why bother boring y'all with the same snow pictures over and over."

    And, yes, I am stuck in a snow bank.

    Andy ... I am here, but barely.

  8. mc...that jam would go so nicely with some of my homemade bread :P

  9. To months and no new thread! Hope you'll are doing ok!

  10. hey MC, I have missed you! It will take me some time to read and catch up on your happenin's. Good to find you again, someone pointed me here!

    I always love jam or fudge that isn't as thick as intended. Soooo good on ice cream, or in milk!
