Slow progress vs. binging

Tonight we canned one batch of blueberry jam and stacked a little bit of wood. We are experimenting with a different sort of progress - incremental successes instead of all day binges.

A few weeks ago we had an all-day canning effort which resulted in 40 delicious jars of fruity yumminess. Tonight, our half hour of jamming produced 6.5 jars. Instead of felling, cutting and stacking an entire tree, we've been devoting 20 minutes a night to splitting and stacking a tree we dropped this weekend. It is a different sort of work for us. I'm not exhausted, but I do feel a little less accomplished.

I don't have pictures of either of those projects, but I do have some recently accomplished sock knitting to show off. Bill is calling these his Chocolate Peanut Butter socks:
