WENT STRAWBERRY PICKING TODAY WITH MY DAUGHTER AND GRANDSON. HAVE BEEN PICKING STRAWBERRIES FOR OVER 45 YEARS AT THE SAME PLACE. USE TO GO WITH MY MOTHER AND WE WOULD COME HOME WITH THREE OR FOUR OF THESE TRAYS. HULL THEM TOGETHER AND THEN MAKE JAM AND FREEZE SOME AND OF COURSE SAVE OUT SOME FOR STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE OR JUST CREAM AND STRAWBERRIES WITH A SLICE OF BREAD. PICKING TODAY WAS GREAT! NO SUN AND SO IT WAS NOT TOO HOT. I JUST LOVE PICKING BERRIES. WHEN I WAS VERY YOUNG ONLY 7 I WOULD WALK UP THE ROAD TO A FARM AND PICK FOR MONEY. CAN`T REMEMBER WHAT WE GOT FOR A QUART BUT IT WAS FUN WALKING WITH MY SISTER AND BROTHERS. WHEN WE GOT THERE WE ROAD A HAY WAGON OUT TO THE FIELDS TO PICK. I WAS YOUNG SO I DIDN`T GET THAT MANY OR MAKE A LOT OF MONEY BUT IT LEFT GOOD MEMORIES. TODAY I WILL MAKE JAM AND FREEZE SOME AND OF COURSE HAVE STRAWBERRU SHORTCAKES FOR SUPPER. HAVE A GREAT RECIPE FOR SHORTCAKES IF INTERESTED JUST EMAIL ME @ LIZRAG@AOL.COM.
Its hard to believe that it is already the middle of February. Time has a way of disappearing like a blink of the eye! I guess the older you get the faster it goes. Since we are still in winter lets have some more snow! Our snow around Maine is going very fast. Since we do snowmobile some and have a camp further north in Maine where usually snowmobiling is great we are all praying for those white flakes. Vacation week is the time we go with our grandkids and their parents. We have such a great time. In the meantime I am making new things for my website lizziesraggs and thinking Spring creations. Hard to get in that mood but I`m trying. Hope to hear from you and share what your all doing to get through this season.
