We made it through the 4th.
I knew the 4th was going to be a rough day so I had plans to lay low and not over commit. The only commitment I had made in fact was to go strawberry picking in the morning with my cousin. I have not been strawberry picking since the kids were young…
Getting at one with nature seems to be my thing this year. It keeps my mind busy.
We went out and were given a row to pick in. We each took a side and chatted away while we crawled through the hay between the rows picking berries staining the knees of our pants berry red. Two buckets each.
The owner, Roger, came and went through my bucket. as a “newbie” he pulled berries out that he told me I wouldn’t want, over ripe and would not be good. He told me I should be eating them s I went to know what the god ones looked like. He was a nice guy and gave me a discount as he was worried about the state of the berries I had picked. 🙂
So now, I have a pile of berries to deal with. Yesterday I saw a recipe for cobbler on line that I would like to try. I picked up some blueberries and plan to make a couple of these there this morning, one for my aunt and one for a friend who both recently went through surgery. I will make one for us tonight as I believe a friend is coming form the cities to hang out with me the next couple of days so we are going to grill and either hang out by the fire pit or watch movies – or both.
Looking forward to it.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Stay safe.
