Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

Labor Day Family Fun!

Our generally busy street was uncharacteristically quiet today – with no public transportation! We enjoyed that quiet and the “pause” from regular duties. (I almost got all caught up on laundry, too – almost!)

We’ve been enjoying beautiful autumn weather – and fall flowers – these days. And we harvested more pink guavas this afternoon!

Last week’s harvest looked like this!

Our little tree was just a “stick” in the ground when we arrived in mid-2013. In 2014 we got about a dozen guavas; in 2015 we got almost 100! (Last year the weather turned too cold, too fast – and much of the fruit did not ripen.) But this year promises to at least double the 2015 harvest! We’ll see...

Although I experimented with making jam (in 2015) – which the Little People loved! – I prefer to chop and freeze them, ready to make into smoothies throughout the year...

This evening, we celebrated DJ’s Half-Birthday with “Moose Muffins” and Guava Smoothies!

Life is just too short not to... 💕
