I hope you like my pages. I was pleased with them in the end.
I managed to get ten quarts of bluberries last night which is aproximately 12 pounds. It cost me my time 1 1/2 hours and $12.00. I know one of the local farm markets sells a ten pound box for $2.40/ lb., and that is why I pick. I saved myself over half in cost and I got the enjoyment of nature and the sun was starting to set low, with the birds singing I thought it was a beautiful evening. I used to always love going in the morning, oh was that relaxing and the peacefulness was almost magical. But then I had children and there is nothing relaxing and peaceful about taking two bored children berry picking.
Well I better go the list is still intact although I am shocked and excited to say I did get all six loads of laundry washed. folded, and put away yesterday. Today i need to check the garden, ignore the weeds, and I "want" scrap a little and play with my little darlings.
God Bless and have a great day,

Saturday DW had to work on a roof, so my best friend Layla and her little sister came and picked up the boys and I and we went swimming. There is a nice little park about ten miles away that has a beautiful little beach and swimming area. The boys had a ton of fun with Sara and Layla and I just got top relax and watch the kids play.
Yesterday we were invited to a summer cookout for our couples sunday school class. We went to the home of our teachers, and a very large and beautiful home it was. Shelley had it set up like a luau, and did an amazing job. They had a couple of slip and slides set up for the kids and volleyball and chit chat for the adults. We left Little Mister with my friend Layla for the evening so I could actually relax and visit. That was so nice, I can't even tell you how nice.
Now for looking ahead, Today is definately laundry and maybe finish the 4rth scrapbook pages, then this evening I will go picking bluberries with a few friends. I am hoping that the berries are loaded and ripe for fast picking. I want at least 3 ice cream pails full but hoping for 4.
Tommorrow it will be garden day. pick whats ready and do a little weeding and freeze more green beans. And who knows maybe a little more scrapping. I love having my own little space to where I can work on it alittle here and there.
Wednsday will be an outing with the boys at a garden and sculpture park. We took Big Mister when he was about 6 months old and so am looking forward to taking Little Mister. They have a large variety of gardens and a great childrens area. the rest of the week I also have lots going and will share more then. In the mean time have a great day and I will make my rounds visiting.
