LITTLE WORMS AND TRIAL RUNS

June 22, 2009

Thank goodness it’s stopped raining, the sun’s out!!! The garden is growing, I really don’t know how it is with all the rain. Broccoli is just about over, it tasted good until one night I looked on my plate and said” What is that?” THAT was a little WORM, then another one, OMG what happened??? Hubby deadpanned,”Did you wash the broccoli good hon?” I thought so!!! “Evidently not” He said. Needless to say it went in the trash and the new broccoli I picked went to my parents, let MOM wash the suckers!!!!!! I’m done eating that!!!

The blackberries are coming on and turning dark. I picked some for a trial run of jam. The are still tart and when I made the jam it wasn’t dark enough, it reminded me of raspberry jam that I make. So I think I will wait until next week, that is if the birds don’t find them first!! LOL! I’m looking forward to making blackberry jam. I have strawberry already made for this year, and am going to make more blueberry jam in a few weeks. Then the peach jam next. I said that I wouldn’t compete this year, but I might change my mind if the blackberry jam turns out,===ummm we’ll see. 🙂

UPDATE 101

June 15, 2009

I’ve been so busy on face-book that I have totally neglected my world. It’s hard to keep up with it all and work too. Lately it seems that i have been doing alot of traveling around, not far but   enough to throw things off.

I first went to Baltimore City for a job interview, that was a trip. The last time I had to go downtown Baltimore it was to take a test for a  higher license. This time hubby went with me and it was interesting. First off the traffic was busy and the roads went every where! We found the office building and looked for a parking garage. Luck us we found one 4 blocks away and on the 6 tier! Glad it wasn’t raining! Walking around I felt like I was the best dressed on the street, what with the tourist, the homeless, and the drunks! The interview was only 20 minutes long. The trip took all day just for that. Oh well it was something that I have always wanted to try for and am glad I did.

After that day we decided that we needed to get away for a couple of days, so we went to our fav. place, PA. First stop is New Holland then on to Mannheim for Roots, a  big farmer’s market and produce market only open on Tues. They had the best and freshest veggies and fruits, I tried to bring them all home! LOL!

Saturday my daughter and I went to NYC to a broadway play-Mamma Mia was at the Winter Garden theater on broadway.

MAMIA MIA

Our bus got there early and let us off, so we walked up and down Broadway. Such fun and alot to see. I was surprised that the city wasn’t full of people, there were people walking and traffic was there , but I expected it to be allot worse. But as we walked to Times Square, it was so funny, it was like basking on the beach in the city. The streets were blocked off, a band was playing and people were sitting in web lawn chairs, reclining ones! Just chilling like on the beach or the boardwalk in OC> so funny, but a neat idea, if you can’t get outta the city, improvise!!! LOL!

US TIMES SQUARE

did you know that you can turn your phone around and take a pic??!! This is us in Times Square chilling too.

I have never seen a Broadway play and now I am just hooked. It was totally awesome, I would go again in  a heart beat! Now I have to see the movie.
