Happy New Year!

Looking forward to another year of great reads and gardening!

Although I may skip the canning this year. I had really big pile of tomatoes and only wound up with 4 pints of salsa! And for the first time ever, my strawberry jam didn't set completely! I accidentally bought liquid pectin (which I've never used), instead of powdered, and you do things in a slightly different order! Sigh. At least the dilly beans were fine, and as always, pretty darn easy!

I'll stick to reading in these cold months and always looking forward to your great ideas!

Have a great and safe night.

Happy Birthday, Julia!

I hope you get to spend some time today doing something fun and/or decadent!

Change is bad

Goodreads keeps making tweaks and "improvements" to its interface. Are these really better? I find it disconcerting to go there and suddenly find a different-looking page. Once I get over my shock, I don't see it as being particularly different, just rearranged. As a creature of habit, I find this upsetting! (Not to worry, I do manage to adapt despite my curmugeonly ways.)
