Nothing Fancy

There's nothing fancy around here this time of year. The focus is on enjoying the abundance of summer and going with the flow of life. This week we were blessed with blueberries and raspberries. Levi, our eight-year-old, several-times-removed cousin, picked the blueberries for us. We were happy to pay him for his efforts and to participate in helping his parents develop his 'work ethic' as he learns how to reap the benefits of hard work and managing money. It wasn't too many years past that his parents were doing it for our boys. It doesn't seem all that long ago that they were buying produce from them or hiring them to work on a computer project. Those years flew by quickly!

    The berries look great. I just walked out to check my blueberry bush and the berries are still green. Enjoy your harvest!

  3. It's blueberry time around here too! We are blessed to live near one of the largest blueberry farms in East Texas. Just a five minute trip down a back road and we have acres of wonderful picking. We visit every week during the two month season and fill our freezer.
