The Farm...

...so last night after Matt got off, we drove out to the farm to pick up a fridge (long story I won't get into). It was nice and cool and the dogs had a blast. We sat by the pond and watched the two of them (Emma and Shadow not Matt and I) chase each other going 90 miles an hour then jump in the pond to cool off and get a drink. Then we walked down to our deer stand and saw deer tracks so that's a good sign for us come November. I think we probably walked at least 3 miles. We were ALL exhausted by the time we got back to the farm house. Along the walk, we saw that the blackberries were turning so we ate a couple off the bush and decided we'd pick some and I'd attempt to make a blackberry pie or cobbler or something with blackberries later this week (I'll post about it). So Matt starts to wheel out the fridge and I start to pick blackberries. Not realizing they have thorns I go to town starting from the bottom and working my way up. All was fine until it trapped me! I was yelling "OWWW!" when Matt came over and asked what was wrong. I pointed to my ear where he saw two thorns sticking out! So whoever eats this blackberry thing that I make better really enjoy it because I took PAIN for these blackberries!!! We headed home and stopped at a restaurant called Backroads Pizzeria and Grill. It was delicious and the best part-I have leftovers for lunch today!!! YUM!!! When we got home, everyone passed out because we were all exhausted!!! Work today and tomorrow then the fair is all next week and Matt will be done with his online class after his final on Monday night-THANK GOODNESS!!! He's taking Intermediate Algebra this fall so Angie I might be asking you for help!!!

Is Backroads in the Troy area? It sounds familiar. A couple of years ago we were close to buying a house in Hawk Point, and I thought I saw it going out that way. Of course, I could be crazy. LOL.
