Simple Pleasures

Lots of things make me happy.

All the typical stuff:

*Family & Friends
*My critters (when they aren't pooping and stinking up the house - or walking on my head at 5am).
*All the seasons
*A gnarly good storm
*Copious amounts of coffee (or wine...either/or)
*Lots of other things, I could go on for hours

This morning I had the pleasure of meeting up with a friend and
reaping the benefits of her hard work in the garden.

This is happiness on steroids kind of happy!

Not only did I get to spend some time with her, but I scored some:

Small plums
they were so ripe & ready that a simple
nudge and they fell willing into my hands
I think it was my stunning good looks and charm that made them
want to come home with me

My friend and her fiance harvest it
From their own working hives
which sit in their garden
It really doesn't get any better than that

Perhaps I was too hasty
Because it does get better
Oodles better
I have an entire bucket of
that I harvested from their garden today
It is such a zen feeling to pick your own tomatoes
"Take as much as you want", said Friend
And so I did

  1. I LOVE hand picked tomatoes. So much so, that my mom had cherry tomato plants outside her back door, and right after my oldest son was born I ate SOOOOOO many of them that I gave us both thrush.

    End TMI.
