Michelle was working afternoons today and the boys' dad was supposed to be home early. So I didn't expect to have them. However, Dad called and said he was going to be late. I went and picked up the boys and since it was a much cooler day today, about 67 degrees, we headed to the strawberry patch.
We picked four quarts of beautiful strawberries in about 15 minutes. It's a good thing we were so fast. Just as we were picking the last quart, it began to rain. We filled the box quickly and got to the car before getting too wet. The berries were big and sweet. Mmm! By the time we got back to their place, Dad was home.
The boys took 2 quarts home with them and I kept 2 quarts for us. I came home and it wasn't long before the boys' dad called and said the compressor on their refrigerator was gone. So I headed back over there to help him decide what to keep and what needed to be thrown out.
Jordan came home with me to spend the night. It is now 11:06 pm and he's standing here watching me type this. He is a night owl.
Anyway, Brandon and his Dad and paternal grandfather went out and were able to get a fridge. That Grandpa has a truck and they were able to get it home. Tomorrow is Canada Day, so there was no chance of them getting one tomorrow.
So that's the news for today from my place. Now I'd best get off the computer and get this boy to bed.
Oh, one last thing. Jordan and I had chocolate ice cream with freshly picked strawberries for dessert tonight. Jordan says it was really good.
