Jamberry good time!


It's that time of the year of berries! Gotta love those berries....raspberries, blackberries, and razamataz berries (okay - so there are no such things as razamataz berries, but don't they sound good?).

To celebrate the berry season - we will make anyone who comes for a visit a raspberry/blackberry milkshake! We also have on hand raspberry and blackberry freezer jam, and blackberry syrup for those yummy pancakes, waffles, and pieces of french toast :o) Any takers?We'll have a Jamberry good time!!

Gordon's new toy!

Gordon got a new toy to help him with the honey harvest! It holds 20 frames of comb and honey. The one he borrowed last year only held 6 you can see what a huge improvement this one is....PLUS he doesn't have to hand crank this one :o) He has bottled 114 pounds of honey so far and about another 150 in buckets. He still has quite a few frames of honey to spin and harvest. A lot of local beekeepers lost half their hives this year. So Gordon did extremely well.
We already have people putting in their requests to buy his honey!

Visit from the Fiskaroonies!

Bryan, Melissa and girls came for the weekend and what a weekend we had! They got here late Thursday night and left Sunday about 3pm. We went down to the Inner Harbor in Baltimore (I'll post some camera pictures later of Baltimore) on Friday, got rained on, went home made ribbon skirts and wands for the girls, and had Smokey's for dinner! Saturday, we went to the ribbon outlet where us girls had a blast picking out cheap ribbon, had lunch at Wendy's, went to Antietam battleground, picked up a couple of babysitters, went to Texas Roadhouse for dinner with friends, and then went to see the new Harry Potter movie! Boy did we have fun! I think we were all pretty tuckered out after a couple full days of fun.

We went to church today, came home, fixed dinner and then they had to leave :o( The house if way too quiet now. sigh.......
