Waaaaaw this will be long!  
I'm behind on blogging! I did a great many things recently. The more hours I work, the more productive I'm at home, weirdly. I worry for my camera because some days it doesn't focus at all. I'm very careless with it and undoubtedly it was dropped many times, so I hope it's just the lens :( Buying a new camera would suck pretty bad because I love this one so.

First of all: I made ketchup. It was friggin delicious! Google for a ketchup recipe and make it and you will thank me.

Then I made my own deodorant, after a Crunchy Betty recipe. This stuff is amazing! I do a lot of physical work and bike to work 30 kilometres and never smell even a tiny bit! Try it, it will rock you world.

Then I made lemons in salt preserves

T received lots of beans and we strung them up to dry, like a very weird garland.

After my cool studio that was cold and far too large, it's nice and comfortable just sitting on the floor and sewing. No pressure, no long sessions. I made some things just for fun.

Curtains, and pillowcases, mostly.

I made cough syrup by boiling sugar with water and steeping thyme in it. It worked very well and tasted really good! Cheap solution.

While I work on some Halloween recipes

I want to thank you all for sharing your favourite blogs with me a bit ago! It really inspired me to do things. It was nice to discover that I'm not alone in my little-house sentiments, but that there's an antire movement that's called "urban homesteading." Very cool!

It really was! It's a lot of work but you really have a good result at the end of the afternoon :) I'm totally making more ketchup next year.
