Tuesday List

  • Had a good weekend at home with my parents and grandparents. I drove down for church with all of them, had lunch, and then spent the afternoon in the country.
  • Mom and I went blackberry picking. On our way to find some bushes that had berries on them at Granny and Paw Paw’s house, we encountered some grasshoppers. Typical Oklahoma summer. I am the one that’s freaking out. You have one hit you in the face and see what you do!
  • We made it out with about a gallon of blackberries. Mom sent all of them home with me and most of them are in the freezer waiting to be turned into a delicious cobbler at some point in the future. We were just a few days early for the blackberries at Granny’s house. There were lots of red and green ones on the vine, so I’ll head down later this week to pick more with Mom.
  • Already enjoyed some fresh blackberries with homemade whipped cream. Yum.
  • After the blackberry picking, I rode around in the truck with Paw Paw and looked at cattle and farm equipment. We fed some of the cows, looked at new calves, and he humored me and stopped to let me take photos when I asked 🙂 I’ll share some of those later this week or next.
  • I like this song. Can’t help it. Doesn’t it make you want to dance around?
  • I’ve found a lot of new music that I’m enjoying. So, there may be a few new “Listening Lately”s coming up.
  • The writing is going slowly right now, but good. I’m doing a lot of research currently and that’s taking up quite a bit of time.
  • Happy 51st birthday to my dad tomorrow!

  1. Like the song! Picking berries is so fun, the amount you can eat without worrying that there won’t be many left (well, usually), and the nice natural taste from taking them straight from the bushes. Best of luck with the writing, glad to hear the research is going well!

  2. Elizabeth, I love “dirt roads” like the one in your photo… they always lead to somewhere interesting! Glad you enjoyed time with your family. And those fresh blackberries… mmmmm.
