Blueberry Picking!

I am sitting here typing with one hand as I scarf down blueberries with the other. Wow, I love those little things!

Took the kids out blueberry picking today for the first time (them, not me), and they thought it was great! We were the only ones there for the first half of our picking time... guess it was too hot for everyone else! Oh well. More for us!

Now I am searching for out-of-the-ordinary blueberry recipes to use up my 20 cups or so of blueberries! (Did I mention they are super ripe and need to be used or frozen pretty much immediately? Yeah. Lol!)


See that full pail on the ground? There's another in the stroller seat and it is even more full than the first!

The entire field is covered in netting to keep the birds away.


We saw this interesting-looking bird on the way home, just walking along the road. Aren't those polka dots crazy? We were thinking this might be a grouse...

It's a guinea fowl. My son just read a fable of how she got her spots.
