Strawberry Festival… Was a Bust and MORE!
Since the Long Grove Apple Fest is normally pretty good, we thought we’d check out the Long Grove Strawberry Festival, assuming it would be overloaded with strawberry goodness and goods.
Sadly, there was hardly a berry to be found.
This is the only photo I got and that’s because I pretty much purchased all those berries, which is basically ALL the berries they had. We also bought a LOT of pie. Apple pie, apple strawberry pie, strawberry pie, strawberry rhubarb pie. We are going to have a LOT of dessert this week!
Thankfully they were the same size / price that we get at the farmer’s market. Tristan (of course) ate about half a quart on the drive home!
So once we dropped the expensive yet tasty pies and berries off at home, we then went to my ex-almost-brother-in-law’s place for a pre-3rd-birthday party for my niece.
It was super fun, ignoring the fact I got mauled by mosquitoes AGAIN (I’m delicious yo!). My boys had a BLAST.
Be kind, I don’t do a lot of people photography.
Onto other things, few people have wondered what’s gone on since the twincident (seriously, love Kristi for coming up with that!).
Well a lot and nothing. She hasn’t made DIRECT contact with me however I heard from my mother that apparently I’m going around, saying I hate my parents, that I want them dead, that I can’t wait for my parents to die so I can get all their money and worldly possessions. That I’m “crazy” and “insane” and evil.
My own mother told me that I was “jealous” of my sister, it’s the only explanation for why I posted “such awful things, you only have ONE sister”. I don’t understand that logic one bit. Oh and her friends, the ones I mentioned in the post? She has them convinced I’m lying. Which doesn’t really make sense either because well, I’m not lying for one and second, I have the text messages to back me up on everything.
Even after everything, I still feel like I’m lacking closure. Probably doesn’t help that every other day I’m finding out MORE awful things she’s done / is doing / has said / currently saying about me.
On the plus side of life, I have a fridge full of pie, fresh strawberries AND rhubarb, and I recently got the very cool Cooking Light app. I am linking to their FAQ about it. I haven’t gotten many apps lately but I’ll start posting about them when I do.
I’m really struggling weight wise, just totally burned out on measuring food / counting “points” and calories. I’ve been stuck since January. I’m also totally burned out on cooking. It’s super frustrating. Any tips on how to get back on track and enjoy cooking again?
I have a surplus of fresh super ripe peaches… not sure what to do with them that isn’t peach cobbler!
How was your weekend? Any plans for the the week?
