Happy August everyone!
Can you believe it's already August? My, my, where has the time gone?
One of the things I love most about the month of August is that all of the grocery stores, fruit markets, and road side stands are just bursting with all kinds of delicious fresh fruit.
Over the weekend my hubby and I picked up some cherries at one of the fruit markets in our area. Don't they look delicious? Eating cherries brings back such warm childhood memories for me. My Aunt Marge and Uncle Bill had a cherry tree in their back yard and every year my cousin Sharon and I could hardly wait till they were ready to harvest. When my Aunt Marge gave us the OK we would climb up into the cherry tree and pick buckets of luscious juicy fruit. We would eat them by the hands full while we were picking them much to my Aunt Margie's dismay. She was always scolding us because we were supposed to wash the fruit first. Those were the days! After we finished picking the cherries my Aunt Marge would make us home-made jelly and cherry pies. Yummy!!!
I think I'll take this little basket of fruit out on the patio for my hubby and I to enjoy. Charli doesn't like cherries but she does love apples and bananas, especially with a little dab on peanut butter on them. Speaking of Charli, just where is that dog?
"Charli where are you?"
"Charli, Charli where are you?"
"I'm over here Grandma!"
"Well for goodness sakes! LOL Charli just what do you think your doing?"
"I'm getting ready to go to the beach!"
"The beach? You don't even like water."
"I know but we can pretend. Look, I brought a goody bag! We can pack it with ham and cheese and cookies...."
"Well OK, We can play ball but I have to take my bathing suit off first."
"I know you do."
"Grrr!!! Come here ball!"
What is your favorite kind of fruit? What kinds of things are you doing to make this the best summer ever? I would love to hear from you.
I hope you are enjoying your summer as much as we are ♥
With warmest regards, Carol
"and Charli too"
