Strawberry Pickin'

Sometimes it's the small things that make your day. Getting to go strawberry picking was mine. I had lots of grocery shopping to get done this morning so I didn't think we'd get to go. But when we got done a little early, we flew down to a local farm to see if they still had pick ur own available. Today was the last day! Whew. Being that we were across town and didn't really know the area that well, I had to get directions from the farm's retail shop to the strawberry field. Well, wouldn't you know we got lost. But after asking a nice police officer for directions, we found it and started picking. Over 4 pounds and 20 minutes later, we were happy. Those strawberries smelled so good all the way home! I couldn't wait to have some so I had a plate for lunch topped with whipped cream. Oh, my. Now what to make out of the 4 pounds of strawberries....

"The strawberry: "Doubtless God could have made a better berry, but doubtless God never did."

-Dr William Butler, 17th century English writer
