This is Love!


This is Love!

My daugther and my hubby went out Saturday afternoon in the 90 degree heat to pick 23 lbs. of strawberries. I froze some and the next morning made two batches of strawberry freezer jam. We also had 4 cups left for strawberry shortcake that we shared with the relatives.

These are Oregon strawberries, small, sweet and delicious. You don't need any sugar because they are soooooo sweet. And my hubby and daughter were so sweet to go do it. I get super cranky in the heat (hence we bought a 3.5x16 ft. pool yesterday) and my allergies are getting the best of me. So I stayed home with the young'uns while they picked, and then cleaned and cared for all them berries when they got back. So guess that's fair.

My daughter is such a hard worker. She enjoyed helping her dad, came back with a smile on her face, and was so happy to help. Didn't complain a BIT. Now that's love.........she's got the stained hands to prove it!

Oh I'm glad you like it. My blog has become my memory book of sorts. But I'm glad you think it would make a good one. I was surprised that it ended up on the flickr explore interestingness page. Actually, the pic wasn't that great so I "artsied" it to hide the problems and make it look unique. Guess somebody like that!!
