Strawberries and Sunflowers

Strawberries and Sunflowers 

Today was such a beautiful day that we decided to pick some strawberries. So my daughter, my sister-in-law and I went berry picking. We found a new place near my daughter's house.  We each decided to pick one bucketful - that held around 5 - 6 pounds of strawberries. 

They said we could pick berries anywhere we wanted, so off we went. Some others were picking so we headed away from them. I didn't take my phone so I couldn't take pictures but my SIL had hers so she took a few. Strawberry plants were everywhere.

I have picked lots of berries in my day, but these strawberries were the sweetest strawberries I have ever tasted. They were huge. They said all of the warm weather and no rain has made them huge and delicious. As you looked at the rows, you could see all of the red berries. it was amazing. Grabbing our first strawberries.

We each managed to pick about 5 1/2 pounds of strawberries.

After they weighed them, they put them into plastic containers. We each had 3 of them.

Look at all of that lusciousness!

They also had a large field of sunflowers that we could pick. They were $2 each of you could take a mason jar, which they provided, and fill it with as many flowers as would fit in the jar.

We picked many smaller ones to fit into the mason jar. In the end, I had 19 sunflowers in there. My daughter and I decided to split our flowers and my SIL had her own jar.

So we had something yummy for our tummy and something beautiful for my table.

We had a family cookout on Saturday. We have not had one in months so it was nice to all be together and the weather was beautiful. We ate outside by the pool and talked and talked until late. Of course, we had a lovely dessert to end the day.

I may not be the neatest or tidiest but I do LOVE making space and getting rid of unnecessary items in my home.  To help combat that, there are certain items I refuse to buy anymore and as it turns out, a few of those items made it to this list of 12 Things I Don't Buy



*BONUS FEATURE*



I do bake but am always looking for quick recipes that use ingredients I have in my pantry.  I always having pudding, so this recipe for Dark Chocolate Mocha Pudding Cookies sounds so delicious and perfect to make.

Air Fryer Giveaway

Air Fryer Giveaway


Hello dear friends.  It’s giveaway time at Katherines Corner and I’m co-hosting with the rest of these amazing ladies. Do you have an air fryer, if not you will want one. 

Air fryers make it easy to whip up frozen foods, and they can do so in a way that is slightly healthier than deep-frying. The results are much better than oven-frying, and your kitchen stays cool.

There are all kinds of things you can air-fry—from frozen chicken wings and homemade french fries to roasted vegetables and fresh-baked cookies.

Air Fryer Giveaway: Share NOW. #giveaway #airfryer #eclecticredbarn
With the popularity of the air fryer, new recipes are being posted in parties and on Pinterest all the time. You will have tons to choose from.  Katherine has several recipes on her site that you might want to try. You can also buy air fryer cookbooks. The possibilities are endless. Here are some recipes that might entice you.

Copycat Air Fryer Recipes You'll Love!
Here is your opportunity to win an air fryer of your own. If you're the lucky winner what will you air fry first?

Good luck! I hope you win.

 Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to our party. I hope you had a lovely Valentine's Day. I guess we are off to St. Patrick's Day and Easter. I am working on some Easter stuff.  I don't do much for St. Patrick's Day, just a little.  

Are you working on Easter or St. Patrick's? Or are you still dealing with cold weather? Ours was cold again on Monday, but warming up by Thursday. We seem to be doing this each week. A few warm days and then back down into cool temps and then back up. I guess it is that time of year.

You're The Star - Garden Feature Week

You're The Star - Garden Feature Week

Happy Monday. I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Mine was quiet. The weather was a little cold so I could not do much outdoors. I did help my daughter do some pruning and raking leaves in her yard. We did get a lot done and she was happy. 

Today we had some rain so I did some cleaning and read. 

How was your day? Have a great week ahead.
