Strawberry Fields Forever

by jennifer

The sky was looking iffy yesterday morning, but the girls and I headed out to the strawberry patch anyway, almost daring the clouds to rain on us.

They did not.

Chilly and overcast, the conditions turned out to be perfect for picking and photography. Within 30 minutes we had plucked 14 pounds of juicy berries from our assigned row in the field and were ready to move on to the ice cream stand and petting zoo.

Watching my daughters running down the straw-covered pathways with berrry-smeared faces, I imagined that I’d really enjoy being a strawberry farmer. What fun to tend to a place for families to visit and children to learn where strawberry jam comes from. It was a good day.

Did you make your jam yet? We used Pomona’s Universal Pectin this year. It requires less sugar to jell than some other brands, but that’s not why I bought it. I really like the artwork on the box. (I know.)

Turns out this was a good move. The jam tastes good and the girls love it, too.

Who is the actor who missed the bus in the first clip. He looks very familiar. I though at first it was Karl Malden, but I don't think that's right. But I'm sure he's better known for something.And in the final clip, shouldn't it have become "Winstone"?

I believe the national media today is biased towards almost anything liberial and condesendingtowards conservatives and/or christianity at best.That doesn’t make me happy. Nor an I happy withhow fast the media is quick to jump on anythingnegative about the war or our military and dosen’t seem to want to print anything positive. TV media is much the same. Infurating!

Yes, … @hazybee68- Yes, out on the street,homeless and penniless is a much better punishment than any jail time – why waste the tax payers money feeding and keeping them clean and warm even if it’s in a small room w/bars? I would be willing to throw them my left over scraps from the car window. It would be great to see them fighting over this on some street corner too. If we really DEMAND it and stick together, this could become a reality you know!!

Zephid, my brother attended the Big Red and graduated with honors. We also are from SoCal. Unfortunately the hockey team was the only outstanding sports club at the school when he attended though.I’m not doubtful of us beating the Thunder on a talent and cohesive unit level but their athleticism scares me. There is not one position in our starting line-up that can outrun the coorisponding guy on their line-up. If their halfcourt defense get’s a little better this year, they could really do some damage in transition.

Hi Beverley. Your mindful challenge has been a good one for you. I started out doing this challenge with you but along the way my life became a bit too stressful for me to continue…at least in doing it daily with you. I’m very happy to see that you’ve completed this challenge and that you have found your end goal.
