Took a little road trip. Me and little Toby. Left Ramon with the girls and headed to Bend, Oregon to see my mom. This was my first long drive ever by myself. Grabbed some Cornnuts (my go to road trip snack), cranked up the tunes and hit the road. It was an awesome drive both ways – warm and clear. I love driving over the mountain – so pretty this time of year.
My main goal while there was to help my mom clean out her garage and get organized. Mission accomplished. I think she went from 20 some boxes to 4. And was inspired to work on some other projects at hand once I left. The two of us are quite a team and can move mountains.
The worst part about the trip was the mosquitos. They are having the biggest infestation in years – I was bitten just walking from the car to the house. And I have the sweet blood they love – I was bitten so much as a kid. They were like zombie mosquitos – circling the house waiting for us to come out. It took us 4 stops to find some herbal pest spray that could go on the yard and garden – and it actually was helpful.
Some of the other highlights of the trip were the deer hanging around the house. A mom and her two babies and a little buck out on his own.
We also had salads with fresh greens from her garden and picked up several flats of Marion Berries just before they went out of season. I made a crumble and it was oh so good.
My mom also helped me finish up my Save the Dates and get them in the mail – we are officially 6 months out – so exciting. My next post will highlight the save the date and the process we went through to make them .
