Patricks Berry Farm/ My Summer
Hello Sweetie Pies......I have been so busy lately...just enjoying the wonderful Summer we are having...I have not been in my studio for more than maybe 15 minutes in over a month...and...I have not been spending too much time at the computer either....maybe I have needed a break from both!
I have been spending lots of time outside working in the garden and among the flowers....watching the hummingbirds...and enjoying the perfect summer weather. I have also been spending lots of time with my family....animals.....and doing lots of summer reading. Andy and I have been on a movie kick lately...so I've seen lots of good movies...and... my Dad and I have been busy keeping tabs on a sea voyage of 1000 days...his dream has always been to build a boat and sail the seven seas....and believe me...I would go with him in a heartbeat!
I've made lots of jam this summer from the fruit off of our apricot and cherry trees....and just this past weekend Andy and I went raspberry picking at Patricks berry farm..( pictures above and below)....which is right up the road from where we live...our garden is doing wonderful...since I have lots of fresh veggies I've been spending lots of time in the kitchen.....
I have also started a walking program...I clip one of those little pedometers on my pants and strive to walk at least 10,000 steps a day....the little booklet says that this is a great and easy program to get you started on your lifetime walking "habit". The 10K-A-DAY program is to walk 10,000 steps a day (which exceeds the Surgeon Generals's physical fitness recommendations of 30 minutes of exercise three times a week). When you accomplish this, you will be burning more calories...and, walking your way to HEALTH. Since I like to walk...but HATE to exercise...I figured I would stick to this routine!
The Sierra Art Affaire that was held here in Placerville kept me busy.....and my camera always motivates me....Ty is with me today..we will no doubt spend some time in the pool since she starts back to school (5th grade) on Wednesday! ( I can hardly believe that).....that's pretty much it in a nutshell.....I hope all of you are enjoying the summer as much as I am....XXXXOOOOO
