Archive for June, 2016

I have been in many places, but I’ve never been in Cahoots. Apparently, you can’t go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone.

I’ve also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there.

I have however been in Sane. They don’t have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my friends, family and work.

I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I’m not too much on physical activity anymore.

I have also been in Doubt. This is a sad place to go, and I try not to visit there too often.

I’ve been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.

Sometimes, I’m in Capable.. and I go there more often as I’m getting older.

One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart. At my age, I need all the stimuli I can get!

And sometimes, I still think I’m in Vincible… but life shows me I’m just not!!

Have a splendid weekend, everyone!

The Strawberry Moon coinciding with Summer Solstice has surely cast its wonder in our neck of the woods this month, and the three things I love about the month of June are the rhubarb patch, the strawberry fields and the beach roses coming into blossom.

Last week, I looked over the table at Chase Farm filled with pints of gorgeous berries and just took in the aroma. The delicate perfume just made me pause. Without even realizing it, I bent over the fruits and said, “Hello!” I think I was overcome with sensory pleasure.

The woman next to me smiled and leaned in to me..”Sometimes I want to say ‘hello’ too. They’re just so beautiful.” Feeling both silly and sweet, I realized that I had connected with another culinary kindred spirit.

With our recent mix of sun and rain, fresh pick strawberries are at their peak this week, so with baskets in tow, off to the strawberry fields I went to begin my picking week. After three trips so far, I have nearly 40 pounds of this much loved Spring bounty presently in my new freezer and I’m loving it!

U-pick farms are overflowing locally with berries, so be sure to get out there and pick some for yourself! Or surely any farmers market nearby will be offering– trays of fresh picked strawberries- in addition to gazillions of garlic scapes I’ll be offering this week, so don’t let the season eSCAPE you! 🙂

Do you remember last October when we planted our garlic cloves, Jimbo?  Woohoo!  Great rewards from a few little cloves<3 em! j.a.s.14

And her name is Fiona. A certified organic cutie pie, but a little imp! 🙂

Hold your noses!  LOL Meet Snoopy, my girlfriend’s pup.
Alas, this morning Snoopy was let outdoors after breakfast to do his business, before the family went off to work as routine.

My friends have a pond on their property, and they can’t seem to keep Snoop outta the damn thing! He’s either trying to catch frogs, or the ducks that frequent the pond.

Well everybody was kind of running late this morning for work, and nothing Snoop ever brings home from his morning romp ever seems to surprise them… But this sorta did!
Baaad Snoopy, bad dog!! Needless to say, nobody got in to work on time today. LOL

P.S.  I can SO see Poogie pulling this stunt one day! 🙂 j.a.s.14
