What I Did with the Strawberries

Strawberry and cream biscuits

Strawberry jam

I made some strawberry biscuits, fresh strawberry pie (not pictured), and 12 jars of strawberry-honey jam. Yumm! The jam’s a little runnier than I would like, but it always is and Ryan doesn’t seem to mind so we’re calling it good. I’m trying to get Christmas gifts in a manageable state for doing them homemade this year. I’m leaving my job and going to give the stay-at-home mom thing a chance. I think it will be lovely!

We spent yesterday evening whiling away the afternoon in the sun, reading our books while Ulysses happily entertained himself with his wheelbarrow full of water, some containers, and measuring spoons. Summer has arrived and we are all the better for it.
