Strawberry Picking Time

Yesterday  while Hunby was baling round bales in the field, the girls and I decided to go berry picking. There is a field next to where we bale that once apron was a cultivated berry patch upick. It has grown in a bit but the berries are still a nice size, so we filled our pails. There was a nice breeze so it kept the flies down. We got back home around 9 and were all pretty tired.
This morning I am going to make up some jam.
It is a nice cool morning this morning so I put bread on go rise, and I hope to get some cooking done today as it has been way to warm in the house to cook.
We are expecting a few days of rain to move in over the weekend so the gardens will get a little break as well.
Mom seems to be doing a bit better. Thank you for all your prayers it means so much to me. The girls and I popped in yesterday for a visit with her at the hospital.

Justin went to work today for the first time this week, as it was to hot for roofing. He might not get to much work for the rest of the week if the rin moves in as well. Poor guy, not making much money this way.

I think it will be a weekend home if its raining, not much use to go to the trailer in the rain.

Well I here some strawberry jam calling my name..... Take care and enjoy your day.


  1. Hi, Jessica! Homemade strawberry jam is the best. So glad your mom is doing a bit better. I hope the weather cooperates soon, and Justin is able to work more. We have been getting rain most evenings. It cools things off which is nice. We are spending the weekend at home also except for eating supper with friends on Sunday night.

    I hope you are having a wonderful week.


  2. We love strawberry jam! Actually, we love just about all jams. I'm glad your mom is feeling some better. Enjoy your day and God bless.
