Happy Tuesday

6/26/2012


Hello Tuesday!

I know.
I've been falling behind on my blogging. The summer weekends have been getting the better of me and if I can help it, I don't open the computer ALL WEEKEND! Yahoo!

However, could somebody PLEASE turn the heat down!? The temperature is set on Hell around here and I don't appreciate it.
It's going to be like this ALL week. Boo!

Thank the Lord Jesus for his free gift of eternal life because THIS girl does NOT like it Hot. Ok?

Over the weekend we set up at the Farmer's Market and sold some jam.

And of course there was LOTS of other yummies there too.



 
And since it is summer, I'm eating up fruit like it's going out of style.
Well really, like it's going out of season.
 
And this is what a hint at what our (messy) fridge looks like.
 
 
 
 
 
Not pictures are the kiwis, cherries, and other melons.
It's like a fruit-a-palooza!
Ha!
 
Early Sunday morning before it got WAY hot, and this guy took me blackberry picking.
 
 
 
We picked up breakfast at the little diner in town and headed to the farm where we ate it on the back of the truck.
Nice!
 
 
Isn't this view lovely?
On both sides of this little path are wild growing blackberries.
Much sweeter and flavorful than the tame blackberry bushes.
 
And we looked stylish with our pants tucked into our socks and then tucked into our boots.
I wasn't interested in picking off ticks later.
Eeeew!
You can take the city girl to the country, but you can't completely take the city out of the city girl.
 
Right next to our table at the Farmer's Market on Saturday was this lovely couple named Katie and Chester who we are friends with.
They serenaded us all morning with their sweet music!
 
{Please forgive the background music and talking- I'm new at this!}

How was your weekend?
