Okay??? So, where have I been???
I'm not sure! Some times I just kind of lose track of time and what I'm doing! Lately, I think I've been wondering around in a funk. The gorgeous weather we've had all summer is leaving. DANG MAN!!! Not that I like the hot weather,,,, just that I don't like the gloomy stuff already! I know, I know! We've only had a couple days of it and I'm already whining. I just like the sunshine. It doesn't have to be hot,,, just sunny!
Joy and I have been out looking for cans. I've known for a while some one else has been out picking them up too. But, the other day I found out there might be as many as 7 others picking them up where I usually do. DANG! Not a good thing. There's more than enough for 2 or even 3 people,,,, after that,,, EEK! Not so much!
Here's a picture of my truck on it's way to the recycle center after 3 weeks of picking up cans.
|This turned out to be $57 in cans.|
|I've had a bumper crop of raspberries ,,, so the guys |
got raspberry turnovers!
This was a good day!!! Tons of food and cans. Money too! hahaha!!! Okay, not tons of money, but more than I had when I went in there.
This summer I noticed I had more bees than I can remember seeing in many, many years! They were polite for the most part. They didn't bother me. They just hung out in the few raspberry bushes I have. Many years ago I bought 1 or 2 starts of an ever bearing berry. I get 2 crops of berries each year. This year they were ready to start eating by the first of June. Way before the strawberries were ready. That's a first! Now, the second crop has been ready for the past 2 months. Usually they are ready right about now. The first bunch is sweet and juicy. The 2nd batch is larger, drier, but just as tasty! YUM! Joy and I go out nearly every day with a cereal bowl and fill it 1/2 to completely full with ripe berries. I set the bowl in the freezer and the next day put those berries in a freezer bag, then I go do it all over again. This way the berries stay loose from each other. We fill a minimum of 3 sandwich sized freezer bags a week. YUM! I do love me some raspberries. The other day I put them in my cornbread along with some green chilies... O. M. G. were they good. Then I just added honey after they baked. Diet muffins??? No butter! LOL!
OKAY! Enough rambling. YEP! I get this way when I'm tired.
SO! Have a good one and thanks for stopping by! Shell
