Sally posts this Friday Five:
This year Tim and I have planted and nurtured a vegetable garden, and I have just spent the morning preparing vegetables and soups for the freezer, our veggie garden is producing like crazy and it is hard to keep up with, that said it'll be worth it for a little taste of summer in the middle of winter :-). That got me thinking of the things I treasure, memories are often more valuable than possessions. How about you, can you share:
A treasured memory from childhood?
The utter freedom of growing up in the country: field and creek explorations, long bike rides to anywhere, high tree climbs over deep ravines.
A teenage memory?
Horseback rides in the Colorado Rockies with a best-boarding-school-friend the summer after we graduated.
A young adult memory?
A weeklong backpacking trip in Glacier National Park with The Quiet Husband. No grizzly sightings, though!
A memory from this summer?
The climb up to The Rock at Gwynn Valley Camp with The Lovely Daughter.
A memory you hope to have?
The Grand Canyon with grandchildren.
Bonus- a song that sums up one of those memories
It seems that the song must be America, the Beautiful.
