I'm having a bit of trouble typing today, so I am a bit late to the Missing Words party.

Hoot, Hoot!  Hop in Losers -- we got berries to pick!
AngelGirl and ZooZoo wanted to check on the wild raspberry and blackberry plants that grow in the field across for our house.    And YES!!   There were berries.    Yum!  Yum!

And being a good mom, I of course held the thorny branches for them so they could raid the bushes: before the angry squirrel chattering at us the whole time could get them first.

He may have looked like this:

 Ok.  Perhaps not.
but he was a very angry squirrel.

Suffice to say, I still feel like I have tiny thorns in my fingertips today and typing is not going as fast as normal.

Perhaps we should stick to the wild strawberry plants in the backyard from now on.

Feeling Beachie

This week’s co-host is Elizabeth from Silver’s Book Reviews. She came up with the statements

The statements:

1.  If I eat too many strawberries, I will get a rash, or even a bad tummy ache.  I used to be more severely allergic to them, but it seems to be getting better.

Which Is Awesome.


2.   Running a marathon is one of those things that seems like a great idea; but then....

actually - no.
It doesn't sound like a great idea.

But I will shoot hoops for an hour.

3.  Why is it that there is still sand all over my house, when we haven't been to the beach in weeks?

Does it spontaneously reproduce once indoors?

4. Where do you find your Zen?
