Blueberries For All of Us
Last night Jett and I read Blueberries for Sal. What a sweet book! How can I have homeschooled 7 years and missed this one? I have a renewed love for Robert McCloskey's books..thanks to Noah, whose desire to constantly read inspires me! Jett loved the storyline and the baby bear. I want to hop into one of those pictures! I want to pick blueberries, put on my apron (which I am still wearing daily...just stop by and see for yourself!), and can blueberries for winter. Now I have never canned a thing in my life...except for our family's secret chili recipe. But I mean I have never canned a home grown thing. My paternal grandmother, Mabel, canned everything she could pick! And she was a picker! Wish she had lived long enough to teach me how. She certainly showed me how to worship God in the style of King David. But I digress...this is about blueberries. And I have located a pick-our-own farm in Woodstock. We will be in China for most of the picking season. But we are going to make a point of visiting the farm. Anyone want to join me?
