It’s August and the blackberries are getting ripe! There are a ton of them on some land a short walk from our house and I have been checking on them every few days the past couple of weeks, eagerly awaiting their edibility. Saturday afternoon we went on a walk and found then ripe for the picking! In the evening we went back with a container and picked for awhile.
That’s how much I got and the raspberry jello I mixed them into. Not as good as my mom’s with her fresh raspberries but not bad. Especially for a $1 dessert. This is my fourth August up here and I never remember how disappointing it is. The clouds roll in more mornings then not and take the morning and sometimes most of the afternoon to wear off. Usually the sun comes out and sometimes it warms up, but the nights cool down real quick and realy far….like low to mid 50s. It always feels like the rug of summer has been yanked out from under me. Anyway, today was overcast and almost cold all day long. Off and on showers. It felt like April. Yuck. i’m so not ready for the dreary darkness that is fall in Seattle.
I’m backlogged on pictures…she’s just too cute to omit a single one.
Apparently we sleep the same.
Sunday, I think.
Standing on Daddy’s head!
Getting out of the house today.
Mom, leave me alone!
Just is case any of you missed it, Karlin posted a number of cute pictures in a comment on the last post.
