Bounty

I had been worried about where I would find some raspberries for this year, last year my SIL had me go with her to her dad's house and pick.  This year didn't happen but I was provided with another option.  Thank you Lord! 
This was the bounty for my 'hard' work.  A friend and I met at the place at 8:30 am with children in tow (8 total) and they played while we spent 2 1/2 hours visiting and picking.  Although the raspberries are good...the fellowship with a girlfriend was the best part and much needed on my part.  To get away!  So thank you friend and here's to more seasonal picking...blackberries, apples, plums, pumpkin, zuch's...

We will be enjoying raspberry  jam, raspberry-rhubarb, and who knows what else.  The sky is the limit!  Thank you God for this bounty!

Goose Egg

So....here is what I did for fun on Friday!  Had a blast...however I'm not sure I'll do it again.
That is my goose egg...jealous?  Yeah I knew you would be.  Want to know how to get one?  Well I'll tell you how to get one.  Help your husband load the truck up for a dump run and then get a bungee or two and help strap down said garbage.  While working on strapping things down, hold one end of the bungee while said husband works to get the other side down.  Make sure it is either hooked or it slips out of your hand, that way it can lung back at you.  THAT is how you get a goose egg like mine!  This picture was pretty much right after it happened...Frank took a picture...I thought I was bleeding profusely from my head, however that was just my head swelling.  Gorgeous!!!
Here I am later than night after an hour or so of icing it.  I had a pretty good headache going and way tender!
Now you see by Sunday night the pretty colors of the rainbow are making their appearance.  It&…
