Summer brings all sorts of lovelies. Mum came to visit because she needed to load up on blueberries so that we would have room for something other than blueberries in our deep freeze. While we live in the land of endless blueberries, she lives in the land of endless "tree fruits." She came armed with cherries, apricots and peaches. Yum. Is there anything more wonderful than apricot jam? I left a bowl of the jam skimmings (we call it pond scum) on the counter. I came back to the kitchen later to find that Husband had eaten it all with a spoon. That is pretty amazingly high praise because he is not someone who typically likes sweet stuff. But oh man, apricot jam is just pure awesomeness in a jar.
Then there are these... I am now finding random people who I can give beans to. I might take beans a s a door prize to the guild meeting tonight. Or blueberries. Or both.
And this circulated the inter-web the other day. I love it. Apparently Chris Hatfield, Canadian spaceman, tweeted it or something. So incredibly optimistic!!!!! Linking up with Cindy for Random Thursday!
