A Few Days Of Quiet Before the Storm

We got to relax before talking off with grandkids.

We left for Nate’s on Monday, this grandkids trip was different as we started out by ourselves. A little piece and quiet before the gang of grandkids set upon us.
We helped Nate and Bekki can apricots, babysit kids, cleaned and readied for friends. Dale worked with Nate on repairing a piece of equipment, something he loves to do. Unfortunately, there was no time for a backpacking trip

Prior to leaving home, I’d asked Bekki if she had basil, she answered that she had lots. I brought my Cuisinart so that I could make Pesto for us. Well, Bekki had basil, lots of basil, probably 20 plants, loaded with leaves.

On Wednesday Bekki and I picked basil, filling 2 baskets. We roped Christabel into washing everything while Bekki and I took the leaves off. Finally, a couple of hours later, we had 12 Cups of leaves. We made 5 whole pints of Pesto.

On Thursday, I thought I’d try to make a little more. I went out and picked a bunch of basil then proceeded to clean the leaves and make the pesto. 5-hours later I had 5-pint jars of pesto. The pesto was really good but I’m not sure worth the time.
Grandkids swam, I read a book and we had a glass of wine with the neighbor. This was a perfect way to start a vacation.
