Bless your cherry pickin heart!


Our cherries are ready to be picked and they are really good this year. Our first year of getting around to harvesting them. Also, the first year for cherry jam. :)

Twink was very nice and allowed us in her territory to pick them.

It’s kind of a cozy way to spend a day. Work all day long, feel like you’ve accomplished something, take the kids swimming for an hour or so, come home for supper, and then finish the day off by gathering in the ‘orchard’ and filling a few bowls with cherries. :)

I was shocked that it took me a full hour to pit a bowl of cherries. We now have about 6 cups of prepared cherries for jam and hopefully a tasty pie.

And hubby is even more excited that more will be ready to be picked tonight…. along with the second round of peas….


BRF Catch up: Summer in Psalms


I’m alive. I”m here. I haven’t forgotten about Book Review Friday. I admit that it has been a challenge to find time when I am awake to read. Summer is sooo busy. But I’m plugging away at it and I hope you are too.

I’m not writing a review. There just isn’t time. But I wanted you all to know that we should be up to Psalm 86 by next Friday. So if you are like me and need to play ‘catch-up’ please join in and see what we can accomplish in this next week.

We’ve had a busy week here and no end in sight. Some necessary things on the list of things to do this summer as well as some awesome-can’t wait-fun fun fun times to come as well. I’ll do my best to keep posting my favourite pictures along the way. It’s faster than writing it all down…. and probably way more interesting. :)

So, keep reading and I’ll do my best to be back here next week with the next weeks assignment.  For now here are a couple of pic’s from the past week or so. :)
