what a week!

Oh my. What a week it's been. A good kind of crazy, but crazy nonetheless! Then late in the week, we were blessed with a bunch of peas, corn, blueberries and watermelons from a very generous family in our church. This happens quite a bit, so I'm getting better at food preservation, thankfully.

That led to scenes that remind me of my granny's front porch in the summer, and getting purple fingers from shelling purple-hull peas. It's a good thing that my girls were there to pitch in and help. (In case you're wondering about Lydia's outfit, she wanted to dress like Shine, one of the Wubb Girls from Wow Wow Wubbzy. ;) )
And the corn was my job:
There were also about 3 gallons of blueberries, but I didn't get a photo of them. I have the blueberry-stained hands to prove it, though, along with 10 jars of jelly, and the rest in the freezer.

Then to cap it all off, Saturday was Lizi's birthday. My baby is a teenager now! Where DOES the time go?

I guess it goes to weeks like this one, full of jobs to do and busy hands.
