Not So Bad
Okay, so I know that I haven't had the most wonderful attitude about California. It was still very hot when we moved here in September. My oldest dealt with bullies for awhile at school. I had a hard time getting into the Christmas spirit while it was 75 degrees outside. Our truck was broken into and a few things taken from it. I could go on ... but I have to stop. You see, the other day dh brought home tangerines and tangelos that one of the farmers had given him. One day it was a head of lettuce. Then some cauliflower, bell peppers and pomegranate. And the produce selection down here is wonderful and fresh. These strawberries were purchased on December 29th. I have never lived in a place where I could buy berries in December! And they are GOOD!!! Not tart at all. Super sweet. As a matter of fact, they are almost gone. It was a 4 lb. container and we have been chowing down! So, maybe there are some things about California that aren't so bad. Maybe I can adjust to life down here. It will just take some time... until then, can you pass the strawberries?
