Today was a lovely day. My friend Laura and I drove over to Prosser to visit friends. Our first stop was the VineHeart Winery to visit my friend Patricia. Upon arriving we found out it was the first day of the cherry harvest! Guess who got some fresh picked cherries.
We had a fun filled packed day with a variety of friends!
Then on the way home just miles from Laura’s house I was spared from receiving a speeding ticket and just asked to slow down or to pull over and rest. Yikes I was doing 39 in a 25 zone.
