I'm back ! I've been very slack on the blogging scene.Were do I begin?
My oldest daughter got married July 8th.It was an outdoor wedding in my backyard.Spent a month cleaning the house and yard,almost sun up to sun down.The small simple wedding (LOL)turned into a crowd of 200.
The wedding and reception were both held in my backyard.Wish I had pictures to share,but my digital camera died a couple of days before the wedding.It was a great wedding,the weather was wonderful and the ceremony was beautiful.

On July 11th,my uncle was in a wreck.He died from the injuries on July 15th.May you be at peace Uncle Don.A wedding and a death all in one week,left me feeling very stressed out.My dh and I decided to ride to the beach the weekend after the funeral.It was time for renewal from so much stress.

We visited my brother and his wife at Holden Beach.It's a small beach,family oriented and not to commericalized.There were no stop lights or hotels/motels along the beach front.Anyway I loved the area and hope to go again soon.

After the wedding , the garden started to bear, so between everything else going on , me and Mom have been canning and freezing , Greenbeans,
corn,tomatoes,okra and squash.I canned some salsa.It was the first time I had made salsa ,was pleased with the way it turned out.We had taco salad one night last week and the salsa was very tasty.

My sister's blueberries are bearing .Saturday I went blueberry picking.
I love to go berry picking , I find it very relaxing.Made fresh blueberry pancakes Sunday for brunch.They were delicious.Froze some to make blueberry cobblers later.

So as you can see , I've been very busy . Bought a new digital camera and thought it would be compatible with the dock I have . But of course not .
So now I need to purchase a new dock before I can download any pictures.

Still doing the 101 potraits , although I'm a little behind .Hoping to catch up.

Praying for Peace,Joyce

Glad you are back, Joyce. I've kept checking to see where you are. Too bad about the wedding pictures, but I'll bet someone has some and they will share with you. Congrats to your daughter, starting a new life now. So sorry about your Uncle, but think of him now as an angel who has no pain or suffering. (((Hugs to you))). When I lived in NC, I used to pick berries...we had blackberries behind our house, down by the creek in the woods. One day while picking we came upon a nest of baby coral snakes. That was the end of our blackberry pies. judie
