Life is a Bowl of Cherries!

I just spent three weeks in the hospital after having a heart attack. I am on the road to recovery. (This cat has several lives left yet!)

I just finished the last of the Cherries we got on Wednesday. We took the ferry across the river (just 2 miles from home) and when we got off, the sign said "Cherries $1.50". So up the driveway we went for our share! It was 8:30am; they did not have any picked yet for the day, were just heading out to the orchard to do it. The nice lady said, "Give me 5 minutes; I"ll pick some just for you." So we got the freshest possible! The cherry trees were so beautiful; their bright green leaves with lots of red cherries and beautiful blue skies. I love cherries; Bill loves cherries! So I think another trip on the ferry is instore for us.

But Blueberries and Raspberries are on the menu too!
We have it made this time of year--strawberry season just over, though our strawberries last the whole summer. And we live midst farms where they have blueberries (yum!) and raspberries. It has been an education seeing how they are harvested.
