Beautiful Sunday

Lots of walking in the woods yesterday , with some very pretty sights, sounds and smells along the way. One of the nicest things was that we got to go to some places that time and other commitment have prevented us from going for far too long. It's sad, as we live in an area that has a lot of diverse habitats, and there is always something exciting to see in the natural world , no matter what the season. Hopefully we will be able to get out and do this more often, but if not, at least the pictures and memories last.

After walking and a simple picnic lunch we headed to Trader Joes, and all decided that we really wish they were closer. We are finding so many things that are just better than other stores, and often cheaper. Did you know that Trader Joes is owned by the same company that owns Aldis ? An interesting twist to say the least. If this is any indication of things to come, expect to see more Trader Joes popping up in the future, as this is one of the fastest growing ( in profit) food retailers here in the midwest . They are burying the other major food retailers in sales.

Have to start school planing today. Back to school happens in a month for us !

Trader Joe's hasn't made it to the south yet. Beautiful picture.

I'm catching up on a few of your posts. I haven't hear of mulberries in years. We had a mulberry tree at the edge of our yard when I was growing up. The berries were huge and my Mother loved them. Thanks for sparking that memory. I must try the roll thing. It sounds wonderful.

I skipped the weighing and measuring this weekend. I need a break from all that.
