The beautyberries will soon be ready to pick again at our other property. The pictures you see here are some that I picked last year and made jelly with. The kids used the last jar of it at a "tea party" they had with some friends. It was one of those special tea parties where the girls made everything from scratch and had fun surprising their friends ... homemade herbal iced tea, homemade herbal finger sandwiches, homemade farmer's cheese, beautyberry jelly, and homemade crackers. They always have a couple of new girls in the group and it is funny for the others to watch the faces of the "newbs" has they are told what they are eating. Gotta admit it is a hoot for me as well. LOL.
The day wasn't as eventful as yesterday - thank goodness - but tomorrow is expected to be a real crush as I have to pick up and take some girls to the mall (OMG!) and then bring them home for a sleep over. My college age daughter needs to be carted over to a friend's house for a birthday party. The tree cutters are supposed to be back to finish off the big, dangerous tree that didn't want to come down last Saturday. And miscellaneous other stuff. Hubby said he'll take the 10 year old with him and then off to work and our college age son said if hubby can't then he will.
Did manage to get most of my writing to do list accomplished but I still haven't gotten to Georgie yet. Hopefully that will happen tomorrow as I wait for the girls at the mall's food court. We'll see ... that's the plan anyway.
