I've been a bad blogger and haven't been keeping up with the news about Art, Japan, Life. In my defense I've been terribly busy and things have just now been settling down. I have completely moved out of my former residence and packed all our stuff is now stacked in a huge metal container on the side of the road. The entire ordeal was frustrating because even though we have changed our permanent address they are still coming to the old place. The problem is that we don't have our orders yet and that messes with all the timelines that I've been planning out for the last month. I keep telling myself that I just have to stay flexible no matter.
Now I'm living with my in-laws, which is loads of fun because I can sit on the front porch and watch the birds in the mornings. And I get lots and lots of rhubarb to can and eat. Saturday morning I picked rhubarb at the community garden and then canned 5-Spice Rhubarb Jam. It is so tasty! Excellent with cream cheese. We are going to be serving it for Art, Design, and Dine this week. I get to make more tonight.
