What day is it? Thursday? Already? Where has time gone?
I apologize. I had plans to blog this week but one thing after another came up and while we had a lovely, Memorial Day weekend, my game was off come Tuesday, forgetting to put my phone into my purse Tuesday and Wednesday. I was also somewhat of a Mother Hen, clucking over Princess Cupcake who was about to go off further down the coast with her school’s sixth grade classes for a three night science camp. It wasn’t like she was just spending the night over at a friend’s house. My firstborn was going out to the wilderness. I really missed her during the light hours of yesterday, but I got over it. It’s a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity that she will remember forever.
Speaking of Memorial Day weekend, fellow Americans, how’d you celebrate?
The husband learned about Nunn Better Farms in Brentwood, CA from a co-worker. The four of us set out early Saturday morning, the 28th. It was a good thing because we got there by when it opened before it got too crowded and before it got too hot. The portable toilets were fresh and clean, having soap pumps and sinks. And oh boy when our car was heading home, traffic the opposite way was all backed up.
My three loves found the best cherry tree! It gave us practically all that we brought home. The Year of the Monkey tween climbed the tree fearlessly to pick the ripest cherries for us.
Guess how much our crew brought home?
My man was told to bring our own buckets. You saw the husband holding a Dale Hardware bucket and see above how it’s all filled up: 25 lbs, $87! Not bad for some city slickers, huh? We did share the wealth; our house gave some cherries to five neighbors in our cul-de-sac.
Sunday, the 29th our family went out for an early dinner:
The four of us celebrated our first year as homeowners and living in the suburbs. It was delicious!
Then Monday, our generous neighbor invited the girls and another neighbor over to swim with her grandson:
The four of them had so much fun in the sun. I got to knit and chat with the adults.
Before I sign off, thank you from my heart for your support and lovely visits by here, the blog, &/or the Youtube channel. I read every single comment. Each one is like a ray of sunshine that brightens my day.
Have you gone fruit picking before? If so, what did you get? Is it easier or harder than cherry picking?
