Struggling with the concept of “enough”? Americans are obsessed with “more”, which often results in stress. “Enough” is different for everyone. Slow down. Stop pushing the “more” button. Think about what is enough for you…
· Enough challenge
· Enough clothes
· Enough food
· Enough prestige
· Enough income
· Enough house
· Enough car
· Enough time for the goals that matter to you…
Stop buying into someone else’s definition of enough. Figure it out for your life. Your stress level may go down.
This was in public newsletter - I think it is full of wisdom. Sometimes we all want bigger, better, more. Let's take a time out and enjoy some 'enough'.
What was I thinking... Do I really need/want one more blog. Do you sometimes you have a great idea, or at the time it seems like a great idea, but then reality sets in... do I honestly have time or even material to generate another blog?
I thought a blog just dedicated to sewing would be fun - and maybe in the future.
But my life is such a blend of events and tasks. Sometimes I'm sewing, sometimes I'm canning, or putting food by, sometimes I have fun family events and news to share. I don't live a catagorized life and that's a good thing I like the mix. All that to say - I'm just not sure I can keep three blogs going. I will stick with The Sweet Little Bird as my main way of sharing who I am and what I'm up to. And in the event that there is someting marvolus in a sewing event or project I will post it to Robin's Bobbin.

I love the case lot sales!!! I wait for them with great anticipation! Well out west they have arrived. I like to buy my evaporated milk when it goes on sale for 1/3 to 1/2 the price I would normally pay. We buy other things too... beans, DH likes canned beans, fruit, always good to have on hand for our granddaughters if I don't have fresh to slice up, dried veggies, wonderful for a quick add to soup or stews, vital wheat gluten, perfect for when baking bread, and the list goes on and on...
If you too have case lot sales you your area, I would highly recommend buying items you would buy anyway. Don't buy things you wouldn't eat, it's a waste of money - but if you use a lot of evaporated milk and are going to buy it anyway, like I do, then it pays to buy it when it's on a good sale. Sometimes as much as 40 cents off per can, that really adds up.
Happy day and get to the store for the case lot sale!!

I was given a lovely box of plums today. I think they are Damson. They taste wonderful.
We will keep some out for fresh but I currently have two canners going, 18 pints. I still have enough for one more canner but it's too late to do more tonight. I got a late start...
We have tomatoes on the vine. I think we will pick Thursday so I can put them up Friday. That's the plan anyway. :-)
Not much else going on. We will probably have a freeze Thursday night so need to get everything but the grapes picked. The grapes like a freeze to sugar. Then it will be time for grape juice and maybe some grape jelly. That just sounds good.
