Today the neighbor and I picked blueberries at a nearby farm. The weather was perfect! Here's my bounty; we didn't want too many, either one of us. My wise daughter, Audra, told me not to wash them before freezing or they'd be a mushy mess when I thaw them. Too late. I had already rinsed them and put them in containers when she gave me that advice. You learn something new every day! Aren't they pretty? Blueberries are not one of my favorites but I do like them in pancakes.
I said the weather was perfect. And it was - there. Here at the Humble Abode it was a grey day. It doesn't matter to Hubby and me, we like whatever the beach decides to do. Yes, even the rain. The rocks were shrouded in mist and looked a wee bit eerie today! It did not rain, though it looked as if it might. It was about 67 degrees. Not cool enough to need a jacket or sweatshirt.
For dinner tonight we had CRAB! Hubby went crabbing at Kelly's on the Nehalem River on Thursday so I had crab for dinner that night. Hubby wanted me to eat all of it and wouldn't take even one bite. (He only caught one Dungeness that day.) Yesterday he went to Netarts Bay and used his crabbing pole. Those he caught there were Red Rock Crabs. They are kind of small compared to Dungeness and there are no restrictions as to what size or sex you can keep and you can keep quite a few. They aren't as tasty as Dungeness and don't yield as much meat. Kind of hard to shell, too.
We'll be headed back home soon. Hubby's brother from Pensacola, Florida, Craig, and his lovely wife, Ellen, will be in town (Prosser) so we'll go home to visit them.
In the ongoing saga of my health (or lack thereof), they found a heart murmur so I have to have an echo-cardiogram on Wednesday. No big deal but another reason to go home. So I may not post for a couple of days.
Ta ta for now,
"For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to say "No" to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age."
Titus 2:11-12 (NIV)
