Cherries and Camping

Summer time with all the lovely fresh fruit and vegetables makes me happy. Yesterday we bought a 20 lb box of gorgeous big almost black cherries.  Tomorrow, if it doesn't rain, we'll go blueberry picking one last time.  Last night I made a delicious veg soup with our own green beans, bought carrots ( the kind that still have their tops attached) and new potatoes. Yumm.  I use Summer Savoury in my veg soup and I find without it it just doesn't taste right.  I only found 3 volunteer Summer Savoury plants in my garden this year.  Must let one go to seed and shake it around a bit to have more next year.




As I mentioned in my last post DH took the grands camping.  They love being by the river and even though the water is very cold they like walking through to the other side.


Hikes are always fun. A cane for DH and a nice walking stick for the little man.


Here the girl is about to cross the river. She took sandals to protect her feet. Wise decision.

Hope you had a great day.

  4. I just know how the children felt playing in and around the water. I love places like that. I just read your last post about house cleaning. Sorry I stay behind lately! Your house always look so nice and clean! And you still find time to grow all those beautiful flowers and cook all that delicious food. I really need to get some kind of schedule going again. I feel like I don't get anything done anymore.

  8. It is always so satisfying making meals from your garden. We are missing having summer campfires as it is so dry here there is a a ban on outdoor burning. Hopefully, it will rain soon and we can enjoy a fire and some S'Mores!
