We used to buy the big bag of frozen berries to make smoothies all winter long. This winter will be different. We've been harvesting berries. As many berries that will fit into our little freezer. Raspberries, blackberries, and cherries. Yum yum in the tum tum.
Who would have thought... Free berries.
I think we may have to buy a bigger freezer.

Our pooch hasn't been well the past while. Then a few days ago, she stopped eating and drinking. Gulp!
We took her to the vet and she's got an inflamed section in her throat. Really inflamed. Like the size of a plum. It's pushing her esophagus forward, it's so big. The vet thinks it might have been a stick that punctured and then got infected. Stupid sticks.
These days $650 will get you a vet inspection, a couple x-rays, blood work, and four medications. It was kind of them to throw in clipping her nails for free. (It never hurts to ask).
She's now eating soft food, and has gained some normalcy back. Although she's still hiding/resting under our bed half the time, she's also been spotted humping her bear toy and visiting our neighbours.
We're hoping the swelling goes down with the meds. If not, we may have to remortgage our house (the one we just actually purchased last Friday - yay! we're house owners!).

The good weather of late has been a sure sign it's summer. If that hasn't done it for us, we just need to look at all the people we've hosted in the past number of weeks, and we know for sure it's the season for visiting, potluck dinners, hikes and walks, and everything social. It's the time when people shed their skin and open up to the warmth, the energy, and the food. Ohhhh, the food. The barbeques, the wild berries, the lemonade, the guacamole, the occasional beer (I'm still breastfeeding). The list goes on... and Little Bean would like to include milk on that list of delicious food.
Enjoy the bright and infectious energy of this season. Cheers!
