## Day 285: Blackberry Pickin’

July 23, 2012

afOur neighbors told me about some blackberry bushes near our house where they picked some incredible blackberries. I immediately thought of getting some for you for one of my acts of love.

So, I went home with my few blackberries and scrubbed my hands and feet in the tub for about ten minutes. So much for that idea.
