Of Picking and Packing

If I drink a green smoothie will it cancel out the evil fact that I ate a brownie for breakfast? A brownie with thick chocolate frosting…sin tastes so sweet…

Today I picked cherries – in our own backyard! I didn’t even know we had a cherry tree back there, but it’s loaded with dark, tart berries – perfect for making – well, I’ll show you later…
Apparently it’s a good year for cherries – I’m not the only one who discovered a cherry tree this year. The Abbs was picking surprise cherries this week, too.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away…and two boxes a day keeps the panic away. That’s my motto this week as I look at the calender and realize that I am moving in 6 weeks and 3 of those weeks I will be out-of-town! Actually, I love packing and moving and all it entails – I couldn’t wait to start putting stuff in boxes -and imagining unpacking it in our new home next month! I like all the sorting and organizing that happens in the process of a move, and that aspect is even easier since we just moved last year and recently went through all our ‘junk’ and reorganized our storage. Jeremy brought me home a big pile of boxes the other day, and I’ve already packed 10! I try to do two a day, but yesterday I got carried away. It’s a little tricky to find stuff to pack that I won’t miss in the weeks before we move, but each day I remember something else that is temporarily dispensable. (I have packed most of our books and started on my delft collection).

You may have noticed a new feature on the blog – it’s called “link within” and I love it ’cause it drags up archived posts and lets you see and read good stuff that we’ve published in the past on “All That Is Good”. Sometimes the ones it finds are pretty random, but usually it’s posts that have the same subject matter. I’ve followed some of the suggested links myself and enjoyed the flashbacks. 🙂 If you want to put it on your blog, follow the ‘link within’ link at the bottom right of the feature – that will take you through a very simple procedure to install it. (it’s not actually a blogger gadget, so you won’t find it in your settings). Also, for those of you who read us in google reader – do pop over and see the new header! I’ve decorated the blog for summer and LOVE it. The photo was taken on a recent boat ride, which brings me to my next random item of the day…

If the sky weren’t blue, what color would water be???

I’ll leave you with that and go back to my cherries…
