Speed Dry

I love being able to hang a load of clothes on the line at City House and have them dry in 2 hours..amazing.




On the other hand, 245 miles north, at Little House, it can be an eighty five degree day and the laundry will be on  the line at 9 am and hang there all day until 5 or 6 and I will still feel a slight dampness. 

I will be heading back up there tomorrow morning, the Mister reports that there are plenty of blackberries along the driveway, calling my name....Can't wait to get to making the jelly and filling the freezer with those beauties.  Just knowing that they will be there come winter, when I get a craving for a blackberry upside down cake or perhaps a cordial for a special Christmas gift...well, it's like money in the bank.

I do hope your week is going well and you are enjoying your summer.

I will check back in with you Friday with a berry report.  xo

Oh Sherri, fresh blackberries!! I must confess that I am slightly envious :) I tasted fresh blackberries last summer for the first time and they were divine! Enjoy, sweet friend.

Love and hugs!

Blackberries! If I had to pick a favorite berry jam or pie, I think it'd be blackberry. Looking forward to see what you do with them. :)

Not very speed dry on Friday! But did you see the news about this being the driest July since something like 1970? No complaints here!
