Here is Benjamin enjoying his own little spot in the shade!

blueberry picking 014Bill & I and Stephanie & Abbie picked a little over 16 1/2 pounds of berries yesterday.   It was fun to have our daughter-in-law, Jennifer, as well as Annaleah and Benjamin along with us.  We came home and prepared most of the berries for the freezer ~ saved some out to have fresh with dinner ~ and then Bill helped me make a blueberry pie ~ YUM!  Since my family loves blueberries ~ we are going to try and make another trip out to the farm to pick some more!  It always feels so good to have a supply of blueberries for the winter ~ one of my simple pleasures of homemaking!

I hope your week is blessed with some simple pleasures

  1. Benjamin is adorable! Sounds like you all had a wonderful day…blueberry pie…mmmm! I love eating blueberries as they are, but they are expensive over here, so a very rare treat! 🙂

  2. I have to get out and go berry picking before it’s too late. We’ve been so distracted by all that is happening here that I haven’t had a chance to.

    Benjamin is a cutey!

  3. Benjamin was probably thinking, Yes!, all the blueberries I want, and I didn’t have to do a thing but sit here and look cute!

  4. Hi Deby ~

    We ventured out in the heat yesterday and picked some more blueberries ~ fresh berries are just so good!

    Tomorrow they say it is going to be 101 degrees!
    Stay cool!
