My day

After church we headed off to our friend's farm to pick wild blackberries. 

There were a kabillion of them.  Seriously, the branches were so heavy with berries they were bent under the weight.  It would have been easy pickins except for the briars. 

My hands, arms and legs look like I lost a battle with a wild cat.  I was bloody and sweaty when I left, but I had a bucket full of berries - totally worth it.

My friend (who puts Julia Child to shame) whipped up a blackberry cobbler practically out of thin air - complete with whipping cream.  It was one of the most delicious things I have ever eaten.

Other than that, we spent the day in the pool lazing around just eating and chatting.  A great day, but not productive at all.

I am leaving Wed for my girls trip - I haven't even begun to get my stuff together.  Normally, I would be a little antsy about that.  Right now, I am kind of "whatever" as I am too pooped to care.

a 7:00 p.m. bedtime is looking pretty good right now.

That's what is great about being an adult: not only can you stay up as late as you want to, but you can also go to bed as early as you want to.

You're probably in bed and asleep by now, but oh well...;)

That cobbler sounds yummy! And hooray for non-productive days! Can't say I've been all that productive myself, although I did turn out my first drabble in months.

We had a pot luck lunch after church to say farewell to our field worker and to a visiting clergyman from Finland who's been with us for a year on sabbatical. There was some musical entertainment, and the food was delicious. A friend whose husband is also Celiac made gluten-free butter tarts for us, and they were heavenly, but of course it's bad timing with me starting my diet. I ate one and brought the other one home - I'll save it for tomorrow.

I have three hours before bed - time enough to make notes for the next drabble!

Your day wasn't non-productive - you picked blackberries and survived to tell about it. :)

There is nothing better than fresh blackberry cobbler. YUM!

You seem to love nature very much, always surrounded by plants and taking care of them :) My plants tend to die. lolol
