Reading While Knitting

Nothing complicated; nothing too exciting, but yes, I do knit while I read. As well as during many other domestic activities.

Don't throw me into that briar patch!

Off to my very favorite berrying place in the whole wide world so far. We'll be up the highway a bit from the windy strawberry beds, so hopefully tight ponytails won't be necessary. Today's quest is Ollalieberries -- and I have a new freezer that works in which to put them. Hooray!

I don't know who all will show up as we just put out a general call for berries, but it's always a good time, and as the children get older, fewer red berries show up in our picking flats. Thing 1 is like a professional picker, so there's always plenty of good stuff.

I even checked the weather -- it's going to be very cool. We'll have hoods and hot drinks, and hopefully it won't be too cold afterwards to stop in at one of the beaches which give me a heart attack practically on contemplation. I've decided to stop being afraid and just deal with things.

My hips are worlds better, although I'm still careful about what I'm doing. Good biomechanics and all that. I want to run badly enough not to run, if that makes sense. But before running, picking!

Have a bang up time, and lmk how the berries are. We won't be able to get there until after the 4th this year, fingers crossed there will still be pickin's left.

Glad you're better!

Ooh, berrying! I haven't done that in years. Sounds like a blast.

I had no idea that's what those big blackberries were called! Thanks for teaching me something new!
