Well, I have had a wonderful Sunday, so far.
I got to scrap a little. And I see a nap in my future.
This little album is my version of the album Ali Edward spotlighted on her blog one day this week. But I have used a Quote about PEACE that I got off her moms blog. I have enjoyed her blog lately. If you haven't checked it out, I am sure you can go to Ali's and find it.

Tell me what you think about this article????? Do you think Martha needs to let this reporter know how she has already hurt her new line of scrapbooking products.

It is 6:45 and I am not sure what day it is. I love being outside at the strawberry patch but I am alot tired. I could not wake up this morning and at 6:30 I jumped out of bed. I will not get all I do in the morning done today. I am going to skip it and blog. We have really good, sweet, big strawberries at this time. Although they will get sweeter and smaller as the seasons progresses, I have enjoyed it alot. I see faces over and over and I love seeing them. I had a 92 year old woman pick berries yesterday. After she had picked 2 gallons, I ask if I could carry them to the car for her. She said "No, I am 92 and if i can pick them, I can carry them to the car". I bet I will see her for several more years. Last year I lived for the rain and the days I could stay home, but this year I am enjoying being outside. We have ducks that fly over each morning, a baby rabbit that lives in one row of berries, there is almost always a breeze blowing through the shed, it is a good thing. Have a good day.

Well, Well, it is that time of the year. Strawberry Season is upon us. I started at the patch on Tuesday. Sold over 200 buckets. They could stand a few days of sunshine on em. But They are good. Yes, we did lose some due to the cold on Easter weekend. The top leaves are burnt but the berries are good. So take a drive to the country and bring your camera . We are open 7 days a week ( 7 to 7 ) Prices are $7.00 if you pick and $9.00 if we pick. We would like for you to call ahead if you want over 2 buckets all ready picked, so we can have them ready. If you are coming from Birmingham, travel north on Hwy 79 to Locust Fork, past the school , turn left on co rd 13 and immediately right onto Jerry Marsh Road. Travel about 2 miles to a sign JERRY U- PICK, turn right into the drive. We are under a cover shed, berries are behind it. Enjoy you ride into the country and great tasting berries. If you have any problems you can call me on my cell.

Life in the country has it's advantages, you can go outside in your gown and weed your flowers, you don't have to rake your leaves, and your nearest neighbors will never see you. Life is laid back, easy going and sometimes boring. At times, the littlest thing is worth watching, just for a little excitement. On Tuesday afternoon, I had a scrap booking class. We were in the back of the store and noticed people outside. Well, the local fire dept had a controlled burn of a house near by. I wish I had my camera to show the # of people sitting on the back of their pick ups watching the fire. I would guess 50 or more people. The fire department blocked all the roads leading to Cleveland, which just made everyone curious. And then there was the black smoke.
Do you hear that? Do you ?
Life on the farm is kinda laid back, .............sing it john..........thank god, I 'm a country boy

Once again a great show, a few repeats from the last time we saw James. But always a great, clean, rib tickling show. And again he had a heckler and he put him in his place. A little uncomfortable to hear. Had a great dinner, great company, Jeanette and Bobby celebrating 23 years of marriage, good laughs and oh , so ready for bed at 1 am. I think I am getting to old to stay out so late.

We have always wanted to take to the open road in a RV, even after the Robin Williams movie, RV. Last week I saw a place in Gardendale that rents Rv's. So I got on-line yesterday and this is what I found. For a Rv that sleeps 5, almost like this one. It will cost you Over $1000.00 for a week, 7 days , plus gas @ $2:50 a gallon and it only gets 9 to 15 miles to the gallon. Just a thought.
