    1. Oh, I wish. No, those are my parents' plants. I planted 2 raspberry plants this spring. One has leaves, one is dead. Whether or not the one produces fruit remains to be seen. Stay tuned.

  3. Those raspberries do look beautiful -- and so does your redhead!

  4. trying the 'running' thing again (2 miles in the very early morning… naturally the whole reason I am interested is to see if I can reduce my time and, in the process, recover some cardiovascular capacity that seems to have slipped away in the past, I don't know, 15 or 20 years?)

    1. You will be able to do both, but my (unsolicited) advice is to start slow. Build up the cardiovascular capacity first, then work on slowly increasing the time. When I first started, I ran too fast (granted, it was still slow, but it was too fast for me), and found it too difficult.

  5. I love raspberries and I also love running, probably the latter most of all.

    Thank you for sharing and good luck with the rest of the challenge :)

    1. I'm a bit of a roller-coaster runner--some weeks I'm very consistent, other weeks I struggle to run. Hopefully I'll be able to become more disciplined in my efforts.

  6. I love raspberry! The fruit, the color, the scent.
    And I love redheads! Have one of my very own, although he tries to deny it (which is not possible).

    1. One of the raspberry plants I planted this year is not dead yet. :-)
      My redhead has embraced his hair color, but when he was younger he did get annoyed with all the little old ladies who would tell him what "pretty" hair he had.

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Action-Packed Week, but in a Good Way

Last week, I was thankful for bruises that weren't breaks.  This week wasn't quite as adventurous as last, but I'm still a bit dizzy in the Wow has it just been a week since. . .  sort of way.
