Life Outside Lately

You know that thing that people say on social media when someone has no chill or just ready to take offense at every little thing? “Go touch grass” – that’s it. And I have said that to a few people too, HAH. Basically telling that no-chill person to leave social media for a bit, go outside, touch grass, live life, and do something productive. We all used to do that. Well at least I hope we still do for most of us. It’s good for the soul. So this is us, “touching grass” and living in our reality and having perspective outside the social media bubble.

A Fall Festival at our Church. If you’ve ever been to one, it’s a celebration of everything cozy for Fall and Trunk or Treats for Halloween. There’s food, lots of sweets, fun activities, inflatables, community, fun things outdoors, and oh did I say lots of sugar? Last weekend I manned the Slushie corner and in between I was running around taking pictures for our Church. Here are just a few of those photos.

Last Sunday after Church and lunch, we went to a friend’s farm and picked field peas. Emma even had a chance to pick some grapes as well. Then we had the opportunity to go on a golf kart ride to explore our friend’s massive farm full of things most of us forget to appreciate when we buy our groceries.

I have shelled these 2 full buckets of field peas in a matter of 3 days. I have blanched the beans and are now comfortably nestled in the freezer until I take some to boil up for a side dish sometime. The process was tedious and it hurt my fingers but hey, we got field peas on hand.
