On Saturday I went raspberry picking with my mother, an aunt, and my grandmother at a farm outside of Ann Arbor. It was fun, I have never picked raspberries before only blueberries and strawberries. I have to say I still enjoy blueberry picking the best. We also stopped by my co-workers home and looked at the two sheds he built so I could get an idea of what I wanted and needed. He is working on putting together a cost estimate for an 8×8 and an 8×10 shed.
My favorite part of the day? Apple cider and donuts fresh from the vat. Oh the flavors of fall, how I love thee. I ended up picking a couple of quarts of raspberries, but have no idea how much it cost. My mom picked up the check for just about everything, even better! I think overall the day was not very expensive.
We also shopped at the Dixboro General Store, which is a collectible/home decor kind of place. I used to love going through stores like that and imagining how I could transform my house into a magazine cover. I had no desire to purchase anything this time, well maybe some furniture, but nothing I could actually purchase and get home. I am always wanting different furniture for some reason, but I no longer give in to the desire to redo each room in my home over and over again. Now, if I get rid of or replace furniture it is based on need or function.
