Real Time (Call Me Ruby)




After a long wait, berries are finally beginning to ripen on Mount Hunger.






Just a bit ago, Wolf Boy discovered he could pluck enough for a small bowlful.






I discovered something, too-- John strung my birthday hammock in just the right place.

FYI: With preparations for hosting a family picnic of nearly 40 bodies tomorrow still to go, I should neither be resting in a hammock nor blogging. WHY DO I DO THIS?

Abigail said...

(Also pertinent, but perhaps not something for which I want an answer, is the question of why I engage in stern conversation with myself in the comments section.)

GET TO WORK, ABIGAIL!!!!

Abigail said...

Okay. Yes, ma'am.

Rebecca said...

Whatever Abigail. You bought those berries from Wegmans and plunked 'em in a bowl....

because first year homegrown strawberries are never that enormous- are they?!?

Must be the horse manure!

Also worth mentioning, you deserve a few berries for all you've been doing! Enjoy!

Also worth mentioning, I totally swiped the computer in the middle of Andrew's CAT testing. How is that for WHY AM I DOING THIS?!?!

I can't think of a better picture to view for the first day of summer! Those berries are gorgeous! You deserve some R&R, girl, plus, you should enjoy the bounty of your labor even if it is in a supine position. I say, BRAVO!

Much love!

A birthday hammock.... I am a little jealous!!
Enjoy the hammock and those lovely strawberries! The only strawberries available here at the moment are hard, tasteless, expensive ones. Your photos make me long for strawberry season ( and remember to put strawberry plants on my shopping list). I hope your party went well!
Blessings

Yay! Strawberries! We haven't picked any this year yet and it's looking likely that we'll miss the picking season. Yay for family reunions too!

I LOVE fresh strawberries!! We didn't get any this year for some reason (we never got many before, but none at all is a bummer, so grocery store strawberries are what we've been munching- Yours look yummy :)
