When the rain stopped today I took the dogs for a walk and I went down to meditation rock.
Mother Nature has kicked in and the path has begun to recover nicely and take new character since the loggers had their way with the property.
On the way back up I noticed there is an abundance of blackberry bushes that have taken hold and they are beginning to ripen. I picked a handful to show to Jilda. She had just started cutting up fruit for an afternoon snack. She threw the blackberries in with the watermelon, cantaloupe, and pineapples. Not sure you can whip up a better, more refreshing afternoon treat.
I'm taking vacation the week after next so the bushes should be perfect for picking. We'll have us a blackberry cobbler.
I noticed on the walk that last nights straight-line winds of an estimated 70 miles per hour, didn't blow any large trees down but my yard and garden are littered with smaller limbs.
I ordered a new book online today by Tim Gautreaux. The Missing is his latest book. I read The Clearing last year and I was blown away. He's a southern writer out of Louisiana. His stories are not blockbuster but the language and descriptive nature of his writing is extraordinary.
I'm looking forward to reading this on.
Y'all have a great weekend.
