Cherries.....oh so many cherries

This is a very quick blog to let you know I am going away for 4 days to Clare.... to curl. I am so excited. I am a last minute replacement for someone who had to back out... and I will be on my DREAM TEAM..... Richardson/McEwan/Walker/Peters....... yipee. We are golfing today at 11:45, and then curling at 10:30ish tonight. And then curling for the rest of the weekend. We will be curling in Nova Scotia Tartan shorts (thanks to Debbie's quick sewing abilities, I have my own pair too). Should be sooooo fun, and soooooo fun... no other way to describe it..

Wanna know what Terry and I did all evening last evening..... Cherries... gobs of them. We helped pick Kay and Bob's cherry tree and before I went away, I had to harvest most of them. We pitted 18 cups of little tiny flavorful cherries and they are packed away in the freezer for further use.! We didn't have cherry pitters (which don't really work well anyway, so we had to use paring knifes. Our fingers were stained beyond pretty and we javexed our hands last night. Oh what fun we had...

We didn't make it to the end but we divided them up into containers and I am taking two containers for eating with me, and Terry has one big container to take to the cottage with him (if he remembers). He is off to Toms Cottage this weekend with Tom and his kids and the kayaks and Michelle, Scott and the pigs. Have a great weekend everyone!~

So, I see a beer on the table, and is that...perhaps,a McFlurry cup as well?????

The cherries look YUMMY! I miss the tree we had on Hall Road.

Hope you have a blast curling in your tartan shorts!

Like Jill, I noticed the beer as well. (What does that say about us??) But none the less, I heard cherry-pitting goes better if you ACTUALLY open the beer.,
