Hello lovelies, hope you all had a nice weekend. And for those on the East Coast, hope you guys are all safe from Irene!
Mine was both productive and relaxing. Sunday was productive. I did a few loads of laundry, cleaned my bathroom, and fixed up some vintage drawers that will be used in my work space. Saturday was relaxing. I started on Jane Erye, and enjoyed the afternoon at Gasworks with mom and Charlie, where we did a bit of boat watching and napping. Ok, we didn't nap. I napped.
And the blackberries? They were picked by my mom. She couldn't resist bringing a box home after I showed her the handful that I harvested. These guys were grown in abundance along the edge of Lake Union at the bottom of the park.
I like eating them when they're unripe and sour, dipped in salt (and sometimes mixed with grind up red chili pepper). Actually, I will dip any sour fruits in salt—strawberries, Granny Smith apples, pineapples, grapefruits, you name it. I know, it sounds crazy but I absolutely LOVE the sour and salty combination. Try it out if you're curious. But be warned, it's not for everyone. One of those, love/hate things.
