This summer is a bit crazy. Between trips and house guests, all very good things, the "lazy and hazy" days of summer are few and far between.
An evening stroll in the garden revealed the purple coneflower blooming its little heart out.
We picked a few plums from the tree hanging its fruit over our son and daughter-in-law's fence. I made three jars of jam. Love the light shining through revealing the chunks of fruit.
I used a recipe from this book. The concept of small batch preserving is good when there's just the two of us and we don't eat as much jam as we used to. I plan on using some of the plum jam to make an oriental plum dipping sauce for meatballs.
This week is quieter. I took our Australian friend to the airport on Monday morning. I'm doing a little sewing, a little preserving, a little gardening, and lots of quiet thinking.
How's your week? Busy or calm?
