Mostly Wordless Wednesday: The Eclipse of 2017

“The solar eclipse of August 21, 2017 was a total eclipse visible within a band across the entire contiguous United States, passing from the Pacific to the Atlantic coasts”.- Wikipedia

We are sporting the Celestron ISO Certified, 2017 North American Total Solar Eclipse EclipSmart 2x Power Viewers Solar Observing Kit that I purchased from Amazon in June.I wanted to make sure I got the glasses before they sold out. I did research to make sure the glasses were legit too. I am so glad I did because there was a big recall on a bunch of different glasses that would not protect your eyes properly. I’m hoping everyone caught on to the recall! You have to be so careful when viewing an eclipse!

We Need Rain Badly in the West


We cry out for rain. Currently, (as of my post) there are over 50 wildfires burning in the Western region of America. It seems like every time I check the news, there’s another fire that has started either naturally or out of negligence from the urgent burn-ban that’s been up for months now.

First Bread of the “BER” months


I’m pleased that even though it’s a roaring upper 90s outside that I brought myself to cook a dessert bread for my family. Everyone is all about Fall and I’m all there with them but the truth is, Summer isn’t officially over on the calendar till Friday, September 22nd. That’s right, Summer is here to stay in Oregon for three more weeks.  I want to get all the cool weather clothes out so badly but I’m stopping myself and enjoying these last few weeks of warm weather and sunny skies. Autumn is my favorite season so I’m really eager for the season change though!

Mostly Wordless Wednesday: Blueberry Picking 2017!

This is our fourth year in a row picking blueberries during the Summer as a family. Blessed with the price of $1.35 a pound we brought home 20lbs worth. Pie, jam, cobblers, scones, and additions to pancakes are plans for these berries.

Lydia got in on the action and was helping pick until she discovered how tasty the berries were and then more went in her mouth than the bucket. However, she discovered the green ones weren’t so great and had such a hilarious reaction. lol

Do you enjoy picking berries with your family or other fruits during the Summer?
