Okay it's now mid July I have been away so long that I forgot where my actually blog was! Yikes !
I guess it's time to catch up. Summer has finally come to Oregon. We went from the low 50's to over 100 in the span of a couple of days. Needless to say that caught us all off guard. But the sky is blue again, the flowers are gorgeous , and there are hundreds of Oregonians marching around in shorts daring to show off their blinding white legs and arms, out gardening ,planting and mowing their lawns.
Oh did I mention that I live in Hobbiton? We are the lovers of trees and all manner of flora and fawna. Marionberry bushes are growing at a frantic rate, and soon will deliver the most amazing berries ever. For those who are not familiar with these berries, they are a cross between a Blackberry and a Boysenberry. They grow wild here and should be fat, plump and beautiful blue black looking fruit, the berries should be full of sweet juice because of the massive amounts of rain we had this year. I can't wait to go hunt berries with my grandson Christian.
I have been working on my commission pieces for months now, along with volunteering for the Oregon Crusaders Drum & Bugle corp. My daughter and I are the cooks for the Corp. making 400 meals a day that's breakfast lunch and dinner plus snack.
We have one more week before the kids go on tour/ competition heading to Indiana for finals. If you are not familiar with DCI [ drum corp international] check out their website its way cool . For more information on the Oregon Crusaders Drum & Bugle Corp go to oregoncrusaders.org.
I can't say enough about the great experience it is for kids that love music and marching or that are into color guard. These kids are a dedicated group!
We spent a week up in Seaside Or. cooking and playing tourist for the 4Th of July, the weather was great, the water frigid, the fireworks amazing. This little coastal town was bustling with visitors, food and fun! The beaches here in Oregon are some of the most incredible you will ever see. Remember the movie Goonies? shot here in Oregon. The Goonies house is in Astoria, it's a private home but can be seen from the main street running through the town. Fun place to stay and investigate.
Well I am really tired so nighty nighty all!
