Strawberry picking

We went strawberry picking this morning. The three oldest boys did the picking. First they were picking strawberries and I thought they would be done in no time. THen they were picking on each other and the picking slowed down. Oh well, we have the strawberries we wanted even if it took longer than I thought.

Charley is on his way to Canada this evening. I think he can use a break from family life anyway as flying, being bored in airports and on flights is a great time for him to process this crazy life we lead.

We are going to eat waffles, strawberries and whipped cream tonight. I really want some strawberry short cake as well. Greedy guts.

Oops. I forgot to call a lady from church back. I better get on that.

Sounds like you might not have any left to make jam. Do you make strawberry jam? I'm thinking that I might miss the strawberry season all together this year because of our trip to Sussex next week.

The kids picked eight flats so.....I might be able to squeeze in jam. We are in a jam with lots of work to get done. I need strawberry jam secrets as mine is usually too liquidy.
