So how was your Mother’s Day weekend? Mine was nice. We stayed busy. Saturday my husband and I spent some time together, which I always enjoy. It is strawberry picking season here so we decided to go to the same farm we went to last fall for Pumpkins. It is in the community of Sury VA. This is one of those pick your own kind of places, and usually worth the trip. We are about an hour from their and usually travel to Jamestown where we get on the ferry and travel across. From there it is just a few minutes It was a beautiful day and already 83 degrees at 11:30 in the morning. .
Much to my disappointment the fields were picked over and after about 15 minutes of walking up and down trying to find enough berries to fill our basket we gave up. I only got a small pint, and paid the same thing for them as I would have in the grocery store.
(As you can see their are no berries left on the plants)
We left their and headed back towards the ferry where we found a mile long line waiting to get on. We asked someone what was going on (thinking perhaps that one of the ferry’s had broken down), They told us that people were lined up to go to Williamsburg to Bush Gardens. It seems there was a big concert going on. OH great I thought, it would be hours before we got on board. Thankfully there is another way home so we opted to drive the long way through Smithfield Va and came in on the backside of my town. In the meantime my daughter had called and asked us to stop by her house. She is trying to get her yard cleaned up for my grandson’s birthday party. He will be four on Saturday. My hubby and I helped her take an old fence out to the curb, where her boyfriend and my husband broke it up for trash pickup.
We shared pizza with them and then my daughter and I decided to get out of the house awhile and go to the thrift store. We couldn’t believe our eyes when we got there. Look what we found.
An entire collection of Civil War books.
My daughter bought them for me as a Mother’s Day present. I had told her not to buy me a gift this year, since she had already bought me a Bush Garden pass, but she loves to spoil me and when we saw these….well she knew I had to have them.
Anyway that about sums up. Saturday. Yesterday we went to see my mom, and we went out to lunch at Red Lobster. Thanks to my wonderful son who sent a gift card so all of us could enjoy the day together.
Today my daughter and I are going to head back to the same thrift store that we found the books in. The clerk told us that they had some more Civil War books and things that had not been put out yet so we want to go check it out. I will let you know if I find anything
