Sold a bracelet last night so I need to get that in the mail and then the kids and I and one neighbor kid are going to pick strawberries!  Time to make jam!  I love spring.

We have a farm just down the road from us and he planted strawberries this year. They are so good! I love berries of all kinds, but these are my favorites!

I'm at the store right now. Had some lookers again, but so far no sales. This does get frustrating but it's early in the day too. MUST remain optimistic!!

24 pounds of strawberries...though I am pretty sure that Nathaniel ate at least 5 by himself that never made it to a box!

Yum Strawberries! I remember picking berries as a kid and would be willing to bet the number of pounds that didn't make it to the box was even higher.

Today I am going to a funeral for our Rock club president, he died suddenly of a heart attack while putting the display of Oregon rocks at the Capitol building (including a couple of my pieces).
At least he died doing something he loved!

I'm so sorry to hear that. But you're right, at least he was doing what he loved!

I picked strawberries as a summer job when I was a kid. I think I ate more than I picked. They didn't ask me back!  :-\

I picked cherries as a kid over the summer...after the first week I never wanted to see cherries ever again!

My piano students had their recital today!  It was another good one and I love that I teach such talented kids!  Makes me look good  ;)

And yum strawberries!  I'd probably eat them all instead of taking any home  :D

It was a "fluke" in so many more ways than one!  :-\

Eric says that fluke looks yummy!  I just say the day off sounds great!

So... after working 'til about 3 a.m. every night this past week to finish 3 briefs that were all done at the same time, I decided to take the weekend off too.  No plans.

I worked Saturday morning, just as long as I had to for my two client appointments.  Then I came home and Eric and I ran some errands and then did some work on our gardening (my latest Reef Botanicals blog post tells about that).  We watched the two most recent Harry Potter movies last night to get ready for the new one coming out.

Today, I stayed in bed 'til basically 3:30.  Just hung around the house, pretty much.  Ordered dinner in.  And now we're in bed watching TV.

A day off sounds good!  Yesterday I canned the 26 pounds of strawberries and am falling down tired...now it is off to work.

Yesterday I  tried to do some photgraphy of my jewelry but couldn't get any decent pics. Today I am going to friends for a "Left behind luncheon" for those of us that didn't get taken up in the rapture... lol  Then work on a couple of cabs I need to finish and start packing for my upcoming rock hounding trip to Glass Butte, Hampton Butte and Paulina, with the Northwest Federation of rock clubs

I am at work.  Later this afternoon, I and hubby are going to walk the park with our 100 foot tape measure to map the layout of the Arts Festival.
