Warm berries

It has been a busy afternoon. My husband and I just put another truck load of wood out in the barn to season. In the autumn, we will cut the wood we put in last year. Hard labor but it will be worth it when it is cold again. We love to eat breakfast in front of the fireplace on weekends when it is cold. I can't think of a cozier way to spend the day. It is quite warm today and we were worn out after all that work.
For a treat, we found some wild blackberries that were just perfectly ripe and warm from the sun. They are a little early but the bush grows up next to the brick at the base of the house and gets sunshine most of the day. We ate them on the spot, no nasty chemicals to worry about. This should be a great year for berries. We have two or three more wild bushes on our place. None of the others are ready yet. I love living in the country.
I recently started reading "The Onion Girl" by Charles de Lint. It is as good as I had hoped. So far I have enjoyed everything of his I have read. In the introduction he mentions several Celtic musicians that I had not heard of. Can't wait to look them up. I have to work tomorrow, but I am enjoying my weekend.
My grandkitty is curled in up in the recliner. You would think she was the one who had been out working. Such a silly thing.
