Berry Berry Good

The free concert in the park was amazing! Big band sound!
We enjoyed it so much.
The beginning of last week was lovely warm and breezy. We were able to have our first fire. And then it got hot again. 
We had our daughter and family over Friday for dinner and some friends in Sunday for dinner both very fun.

Sunday we decided to go to a pick your own blueberry patch.
That is husband with a bucket around his neck.

And it was loaded. We have been going to a pond to pick but there are so many pickers now it is hard to get some.

 like most places in this area it comes with a view. 

But we were very excited pickers and picked a bit to much. 8 quarts!!! lots of blueberry goodies coming our way this winter I think.

I had a bout of stomach problems (nothing anyone can catch) and I am on meds that make me feel icky but this too shall pass.
It is thundering now but there is a nice cool breeze billowing through the curtains ( sweet relief) 
Have a wonderful week.

I love blueberries. I too had a bout of problems (now under control with meds) but after a colonoscopy found mine was related to collagenous colitis. Have reduced the meds in hopes of getting off them forever, but seems I need one pill per day to keep things in control. But in the scheme of things I could have something worse.

Oh look at those berries!!!!

"tummy problems"... I used to have IBS and general 'gut' issues... Stopped eating Gluten. They disappeared. Just saying... It's a possibility. :-)

That looks like a lot of blueberry bushes in that field. You'll be able to make blueberry syrup for your waffles and pancakes and I see blueberry pies in your future. Yummy... The band in the park sounds nice.

That butterfly looks quite large in relation to the giraffe. It must be a baby.
We are waiting for thunderstorms this afternoon. I hope the power stays on. It's quite muggy today. I have beans to pick before the storm.
Hugs, Julia

Fresh blueberries. Yum!
Those darn meds can sometimes make you feel worse. Hope you will be “all better” soon.

Our blueberry bushes were loaded this year but because of all the rain we had they didn't ripen and when they did we didn't get to them before the birds. Oh well, I should go and find a berry patch of my own! I used to pick them years ago with my mother-in-law and one year we really over did it. But seriously, can that happen because it just means more for later! We've had a few relief days between hot and muggy..it's been a warm summer but I guess that's what folks want! I'm waiting for Fall..my favorite time of year.

Wow, what a view from the blueberry patch.
Campfires are the best. ☺️
