If you're a canner, don't throw away the foam you skim off your jam. It goes great on biscuits at snack time!
Completely different subject, but I had to chuckle when I looked at this photograph. See how neat and tidy Jonah's area is, and how spread out Mary-Beth's set-up is? Their bedrooms, indeed their personalities, are very similar to what you see going on with their snack situations.
Jonah's very ordered. There's one way to get from point A to point B - fast. His room is neat and tidy, he straightens it himself sometimes twice a day. He has a place for all his things, and likes for the day to go a certain way.
Mary-Beth is so different from her brother. Order? That's something you do at a restaurant. She doesn't walk anywhere. She skips, twirls, dances, hops, anything but walking. The right place for her things? Anywhere in the house will do just fine, thank you.
I wouldn't change a thing.
