Things That Go Still in the Night

I was coming back from dinner at my parents’ house tonight and had just walked into the front door when I hear from outside, “Come look at this!”  It was Will, telling me to look at something outside. I was wary of what I was going to see because he only uses that tone when [...]

Ellie’s Farm

My friend Kim invited me over to her parents’ farm this weekend to taste fresh mulberries from their mulberry tree.  I had only had dried mulberries before and now, after trying the fresh one, I have to say the dried ones are no comparison.
