On the drive home I was thinking about what I could do with the little bit of daylight I would have left. (Maybe 30 minutes if I was lucky)
Mow this....clean up that...plant the other thing...none of them sounded fun after an 11.5 hour day.
One thing for sure I was going to brew a pot of fire coffee so that it was ready in the morning. for some reason these days the thought of making a good pot of coffee at 4:45am is just too much for me. So as I type I can smell that wonderful smell coming from the kitchen and I can hear the perculator performing a miracle.
It came to me when I pulled in the driveway. Just for fun I would throw on some shorts and grab a container and take a walk along the fence line and check for blackberries.
I can't believe I didn't do this with the boys on Sunday. This would have been a great outing.
4 cups of wonderful sweet juicy blackberries. Enough for 2 batches of homemade blackberry icecream made with local raw milk from Lucky Layla Farm in Plano,TX.
I will get the milk tomorrow and take it and the berries to my Mom and Dad who have a great new icecream maker. Yum
