Dear Diary,

I played.

We went to town.

Dear Diary,

We went to Grand-pas tonight.

Dear Diary,

I played.

We went to pick peas.

Mama took B (my aunt) to the doctor.

J (my cousin) came over.

She spent the night.

*** Pretty much every summer, we’d all go to pick black-eyed peas on a local farm. Sometimes my aunt and uncle would grow some peas on their acreage, too, and we’d pick some of those. Then the fun would start…shelling them all…and there were a bunch of them. It was fun, though to get a big glass of iced-tea, and sit around the kitchen table with family, shelling, and talking of whatever came to mind. Occasionally a pea would go flying off into the floor, and at the end, they’d have to be swept up. Then mama would get busy with her canning. With the pressure cooker going, and the jars awaiting the peas, we knew, come winter, we’d have some good eating to look forward to. πŸ™‚

Thanks for visiting! Peace }I{

  1. I wish I liked peas. My friend & I would travel out of town to visit her aunts uncles cousins back in my 20’s we would go asparagus. There were so many of us.
    I think that was the best part!
