The first apples of 2010 are ready. I took a bite of one yesterday and it was perfectly ripe, a little sweet and a little tart.
I took a container up to upper blueberry hill to pick what I could pick, but there's nothing left. Blueberry season up and went without me. I made ice cream, sold a few pints through Melanie, and had some friends over for pickin', but that's it. I didn't save any this year.
The guy I was supposed to meet last Thursday postponed until later this week. After that first really good phone call, he hasn't called or emailed. Using the philosophy that if a guy likes you, you'll know; the fact that he hasn't called is a bad sign. I've adjusted my hopes downward. It's disappointing, but it's not productive to dwell. I'm meeting someone else for lunch tomorrow, and someone else for dinner Weds. I had originally refused to meet the Weds person using distance as an excuse, but changed my mind yesterday. Yes, this whole thing is incredibly frustrating and time-consuming, but I believe that anything worthwhile is worth working for, and I'm willing to do the work. Plus, it keeps me moving and not dwelling on might-have-beens with the goats, which is also worthwhile right now.
