Knee deep in June
'Long about knee-deep in June,
'Bout the time strawberries melts
On the vine, James Whitcomb Riley
The berries are ready at the local you pick garden. I have missed them the years we have not lived here, 2 buckets in about a half an hour and it would have taken less time if I hadn't eaten so many. But a strawberry warm from the sun..............they dripped down my chin.
Yesterday I went to Sioux Falls and had lunch with a girlfriend. It was fun to catch up and tell each other how fabulous we look. I visited a couple quilt shops and the yarn shop. I did need batting but the rest well it was there what could I do but appease my fiber addiction. I even made a detour to the little town of Dell Rapids to their wonderful big quilt shop and found a few more pieces that I really do need for a project I have in mind. As I was driving down a county road a string of little ducks were crossing the road. I hit the breaks hard good thing there was no one behind me and where was mama duck? Everything in the car went flying glad I didn't have 2 buckets of berries, the ducklings all made it across, somersaults and all in the draft of my car. It must be tough to always walk with goulashes especially when a car is bearing down on you. --Ann--
