Well, it was a busy, busy week…from San Francisco to Santa Barbara to New York and back. And by the time I got home, all that I wanted to do was relax and spend some time with Tolan and the boys.
One of the things that Miles and I really like to do together is pick wild blackberries right here in Mill Valley. Its a such a simple pleasure but truly satisfying. Hayden’s just figured out how to walk and he’s running rampant all over the house. So, Miles and I decided that the thorny brush might not be the best place for him and Miles brought along his buddy Kyle to join in the hunting and gathering. For all of us to be able to take a short walk, throw on some gloves and eat and pick until we can’t eat anymore, is just a lot of fun. And then, to be able to take it all back home and make jams and pies really completes the whole adventure. Or, this time, maybe we’ll pick up an ice cream maker at The Shop and churn up some fresh blackberry ice cream. Sounds like a perfect summer Saturday to me!
I hope you are all having a good weekend and enjoying some time with your friends and family.
