A geranium spp
Was all over the property, so I googled it.
That's right, still no boats. I'm working towards almost three months boat free. It's crazy. So I've been crafting, and planting, and killing time like a boss.
Tidbit: Coloring Book Update
It's almost here!!!
So most of the knowledge about this has passed through my IG over the last few weeks. Last week the first proof of my first coloring book arrived! Since this was my first full body slam at using CreateSpace.com I wasn't sure how it'd go. My first try, everything uploaded easy and the formatting was approved. It was all going well.
|Matte Cover Proof 1 "Well"|
Since I collect and correct data for a living, the sticky-note disease
transferred to my project. It didn't stand a chance.
Round two into formatting, not as easy, not as pleasant, and I was sneaking up on rage when the final edit, the fourth a few days ago, was finally accepted!!! Microsoft word and I were having words. But it was like freaking Christmas when the Email came through.
I receive my final Proof and finished copy by next Friday! They will be $12.00 and will be super easy to get a hold of once available. SO Stoked. Fish might be next. Who's to say?
My mini promotion of my coloring book through IG has already spawned a fun graphics project and sewing brain child project. RIGHT!?
Tidbit of Food: Spanish Lavender Jelly
One of my favorites has a delightful Lavender bush, going to town, in her front yard. Since the violet jelly was so easy and fun I did a full experimental jelly recipe, all me!
2Cups Spanish Lavender
2Cups of water
4Cups of Sugar
1/4Cup Lemon Juice
1pkg liquid pectin (3oz)
Hot water bath Canner
I steeped the lavender for ~45min, (until it was cool really), strained it, and put it in the refrigerator for the next day. (It was laaate).
Got the beast canner started, and 8, 4oz jars prepped, clean and heated, in the dish washer.
Added the tea, sugar, and lemon juice into a pan to boil. Stirring until I couldn't keep the boil down, then added the liquid pectin. Boiled it for another two minutes. I took it off the heat and went to town filling jars. Hot water bathed for 10 minutes. (we're at a low elevation)

Until Next week! Or something more interesting happens. Shrimp Fleet might finally be taking the plunge.
