Our weekend started off with a bang on Thursday night here
I forgot my camera, so this was taken with my crappy cell phone camera. I don't know if you can read it but we had tickets to see this guy:
We had a pretty laid back rest of the weekend. The Mister very rarely gets to take a weekday off, and he just wanted to relax. We are in the only area of the country that is not melting. In fact, the weather this weekend was pretty crummy, so we decided to go see a movie.
Finally the cherries in my back yard were ready to pick. The birds and I made a deal that they can have all teh ones on the top, and I get the ones that I can reach without being on teh top of the ladder. For the most part this arrangement works.
|Why yes, I am wearing a hoodie in July... Yay Oregon|
Here's a couple of pounds of pitted cherries. Most of these guys are in the freezer right now. A couple friends also came over and picked 2-4 pounds each and the trees still have more. It's crazy to me that people pay $7.99/lbs for these bad boys. I mean they are good and all, I just have always had cherry trees so I have never bought them.
Along with freezing the cherries I also mad a bunch of shredded chicken and turkey meatballs to freeze. I know I am a party animal on the weekend. I should really calm down :)
