i love this quote...

“You are spirit daughters of the most creative being in the universe. Isn’t it remarkable to think that your very spirits are fashioned by an endlessly creative and eternally compassionate God? Think about it—your spirit body is a masterpiece, created with a beauty, function, and capacity beyond imagination…You may think you don’t have talents, but that is a false assumption, for we all have talents and gifts, every one of us. The bounds of creativity extend far beyond the limits of a canvas or a sheet of paper and do not require a brush, a pen, or the keys of a piano. Creation means bringing into existence something that did not exist before—colorful gardens, harmonious homes, family memories, flowing laughter.”

Dieter F. Uchtdorf, from the first presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Excerpted from his talk "Happiness is your Heritage" from the General Relief Society Meeting, October 2008.

peachy peach


my friend Shauna (check out her blog over at Nature for kids) and I
spent yesterday up to our elbows in peaches... It was pretty funny...
we had TONS! But, we were able to make loads of yummy peach goodness...
Our list includes... peach jam, peach raspberry jam, peach strawberry cinnamon jam, peach vanilla syrup, peach vanilla cinnamon syrup and plain peach syrup... It was a lot of hard work, but Stephen and I tried some of the peach vanilla cinnamon syrup on some vanilla ice cream last night... AHHH. It tasted like fall. Like apple pie. Totally worth the
hard work. Now we just have to can sliced peaches next week.... ;)
