Last night, as evening arrived and the temperature began to cool, we went blueberry picking. I had received an email about the start of picking season from the organic blueberry farm, and I didn't pay careful attention to the start date, only the hours in each day. So, we were the very first pickers of the season, but it technically only starts today. The people didn't seem to mind and they said they would never turn a customer away as long as they had berries! We picked one bucket each. 28lbs of berries. Delicious.
This morning, day #2 of summer, Todd brought us breakfast in bed. Each of us got a cute little bowl of blueberries to round out the tray. That was a nice way to start the day!
Here are some of my gladiolas. I have picked them to give to our friends who are celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary. I love glads, and they were actually pretty easy to grown in my large planters.
Today's Bible reading is Genesis chapters 9-16. God keeps his promises... he said he will never destroy the earth by flood again and he established his covenant with Noah.
Gen 11:10 - When Shem was 100 years old, he fathered Arpachshad two years after the flood. Doesn't really answer my question from yesterday about whether Noah's boys were triplets, but it shoes that perhaps Shem was born after Noah was 500, like around 501 or 502 years old.
