This is a photo I took a year or so ago at Edgefield in Portland.
Wow has it been busy here. On top of that, our net service was out when an underground explosion took out some major power lines. The underground lines are supposed to assure that this does not happen due to ice, snow, etc. I guess no one can cover all the bases, but then who expects the underground to blow up?
Busy with what you say? Well, Mom and Ron called and asked me if I wanted some fresh picked green beans. Of course I did. In my head I envisioned a nice bucket of beans. Well... I got a cooler, a huge bucket and an apple box of beans. YIKES! After a full day of blanching and vacuum packing green beans, I gave a big bunch away and stocked my freezer with 17 bags big enough for two meals with the two of us... and 6 family celebration sized bags. I was a whipped puppy by the time I closed that freezer door. Then T came over with another big bowl of blackberries... which became a big batch of freezer jam and more berries for winter eating in the freezer as well. I made them in pie jam and cobbler sizes.
For the first time in over 20 years, I applied for unemployment and it's been even longer since I was signed up long enough to actually collect it. The hoops you have to go through are a bit crazy, but then what isn't these days?
Bear, Turkey, Squeaky and Max are coming to visit on Thurs! Now that will be fun stuffs. I guess I'll be cleaning house tomorrow. Ha.
So much for my life. What's up in your neck of the woods?
