fun and games

Today I spent a very pleasant day with part of the family for Father's Day. My 28 year old nephew is in town and he and I went out to my parents for the afternoon. Last weekend they taught us this new game called Sequence. It is pretty fun. You play in teams. My nephew and I were winning so amazingly, it was puzzling. Every time it seemed so easy to win. My mother didn't want to stop because she wanted to win a game. We must have played 20 games. They won once. We just had some crazy luck on our side or something.

Friday night after work I took a lovely drive out to Sauvie Island which is about a 15 minute drive from where I work. I love the farmland island landscape. It was so beautiful. I got a bunch of strawberries. Strawberry season is ending soon, so I wanted to get a lot. Not, sure what to do with them all now. Think I will freeze some. Any favorite strawberry recipes you want to pass on?

My hydrangea plant is doing great this year. It is so pretty. I got it from Trade Joes a couple years ago and replanted it. This is the first year it has blossomed. I think there must be a lot of lime in our soil, because the flowere were not such a dark pink before. Did you know you can change the color of your hydrangea flowers by putting different things in the soil to change the soil pH?

Hope you all had a nice weekend!
