Blackberries and Breakfast
Since Granny is already on my mind, many things are reminding me of her and the magical childhood days we spent at her little house out in the piney woods of Bryans Mill, Texas.
We never "slept in" at Granny's house. As children we had too much to do; we had to get up early and get started. We had to do important things like dig holes in the yard, have grape Kool-Aid tea parties, walk around the mail route, take outdoor baths in No. 3 washtubs, walk to Scott's Store for a Yoo-Hoo or RC Cola, catch lightening bugs and count the stars. We were very busy.
For breakfast this morning I had fresh blackberries with Greek yogurt. They were the first blackberries I've had this year and I bought them at Wal-Mart instead of picking them. It's not exactly the same, but they were delicious and brought back these happy memories.
