June Berries

First harvest of 2013!

The last few weeks have been so busy, but in a mostly good way. My new job is going well. I like what I'm doing and I like the people I work with. It's amazing how much better my attitude is in the morning now that I'm going to a job I like. I'm not a work-aholic or someone who can't separate her work life from her personal life, but when you spend 40+ hours a week on something you don't like, it can be difficult to leave those negative feelings of frustration at the office. I have found that my mental state has been more tranquil and positive now that I like both what I do and who I see at the office.

On to the garden--I was finally able to spend some time in the garden on Sunday. We've had a cool spring, which was a nice change from last year when we went straight from winter to summer. The days are long and hot now, but I think the gradual change in temperature helped my strawberry patch. Finally, after a few years, the plans are producing berries of a decent size and not just tiny one-biters. I'm glad I was able to pick these sweet little strawberries before the garden critters got to them.


  1. My strawberries are really growing well now-need to pick today. Our message this morning was about find your passion if life and doing that instead of a job you don't like. It's really true, makes life so enjoyable.

  2. Yum! You gotta love Strawberries! Lucky you to have them growing in your garden. I'm glad you like your job! I agree, that can make all the difference!

  3. Your strawberries look delicious. I'm going to have to plant a patch.

  4. Your strawberries look gorgeous! My strawberries didn't come back this year so I'm not sure if I'll try again this year. I had strawberries and clotted cream ice cream recently it was divine.

  5. Delighted to hear your job is going well, it makes all the difference doesn't it. Those strawberries look YUMMY!xxxx

  6. Oh those are yummy...and you are correct that working in a job you don't like can lead to negativity and frustration. One reason I am ready to retire.
