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!


  1. I could eat my weight in rasberries~

  2. Oh I could too! However, I recently saw on my last grocery trip that they (Safeway) sells what are called Golden Raspberries...have you ever heard of them?? I wanted to open the package and try one!!!

  3. Next week is OUR "fellowship"! YEAH. I'm going picking today.

  4. I am chomping at the bit for our time together! Laughter...trying new things, pool time so we can listen to Eli, drinking (HA!). We have been LONG overdue my friend!

I See You Visitors

So I can see that people are seeing my posts but no one is leaving comments.  Which of course is going to lead to this question. .. who is visit in this page??? Chime in and let me know who you are!!!

Not much is going on here and yet it feels like I'm the whirlwind kind of busy. Running to and fro to  appointments and whatever else. There are less than 3 weeks left until school starts... man that went fast! OK that's really just how I feel at this moment . Ha! Most of the time I'm ready for them to be back in school on the first day of summer.

We have some birthdays coming up. .. my mother in laws, my husband and then Dru.  Tomorrow is my mother in laws and husband's birthday. I have zero idea what to buy her for her bday...I asked and she said world peace. Ummm sorry I can't make that happen because I can't even manage to get peace to happen between my boys!!! My husband doesn't enjoy birthdays which makes it hard for the rest of us birthday celebrators.…
