Rural Ramblings of a Modern Woman

Sharing how I merge rural life with modern society…on a budget!

In the relish business

Wow, July is going by faster than I expected. This seems to happen a lot. I’m enjoying my time at home with my children so far this summer and I’m continually inspired to be creative. I actually did some Christmas shopping on Friday and last night I started the relish making process. This morning I bottled one batch and am happy to say it is available for sale at $4/250 mL jar.

It's just THAT good!

It’s just THAT good!

Love that popping sound!

Happy Canada Day!

Happy Canada Day from the Rural Rambler. 🙂 I’ve got a few minutes to myself to relax so I’m going to try crocheting a handy little hand sanitizer holder from You can find the pattern here. Summer seems like the perfect time to have one of these hanging from my purse, keychain or just about anywhere; outings to the beach, zoo, farm market and more mean little fingers get dirtier than ever! Let me know if you try making one too!

Wishing all Canadians near and far a wonderful July 1st!

Here are my first two attempts at making this pattern.
