I have come to realize that homemade stuff makes my heart happy. I guess I know this about myself, but the more I live my life, the more I know it to be true. I think it is partly my southern upbringing, but some of it is probably my creative side.
|Jellies and Syrups and Rings-Oh My!|
Memories were what I was recalling. Roots were what I was growing. Connected was what I was feeling. Creative juices were what was flowing.
I know there are people who could care less about making homemade soap or jellies or jams, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that at all. But I tell you what, there is something about it that makes my heart happy, very happy indeed!
