Yesterday I made homemade jam for the first time. One of my goals this year was to “can some food” and I’d like to think I successfully accomplished it. Making the jam wasn’t difficult at all and it was way faster than I thought it would be (20 minutes on the stove!). I had strawberry … More Jam & flowers
Today I listened to some of our D&D sessions. I got one done and listened to 30 minutes of another. Although it does take time, I like going back and listening to our sessions.

The fight scenes were definitely the … More Star Wars, Civ 6, and D&D
