💛 Lots of time home with Luthien, the cats, and the hammock since school‘s out for summer
💛 Strawberries! It‘s strawberry season, and I‘ve enjoyed them fresh, in cake, shakes, pie, etc. 🍓
💛 There are strawberries frozen for the rest of the year.
💛 A quiet evening at home with a fire in the backyard and a lovely sunset
💛 Supper with friends tonight that included fried fish, French fries, fresh broccoli, and more strawberries

LeahBergen As in NHL hockey? Who are you cheering for?? 20h
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks ❤️❤️❤️ 19h
CarolynM @LeahBergen Of course. Florida against NY, the zebras in the west. Is that a saying in hockey? When I used to follow Australian Rules Football if we disliked both teams we would say we were “barracking for the umpire” (there was only one in those days🤣) 19h
See All 14 Comments
LeahBergen Ha! I don‘t know that phrase! We‘re cheering for Florida over NY and (even though it‘s a bit rude) we‘re halfway cheering on Dallas over Edmonton. Edmonton is our DEADLY rival but they‘re 3 hours up the road and in our same province. Our saying here is “ABE” : Anyone But Edmonton. 😆 It would be nice to see a Canadian team win the Stanley Cup again after almost 30 years, though! 19h
CarolynM @LeahBergen Yeah, I really don‘t like Edmonton but I would generally support a Canadian against an American 😆 19h
LeahBergen See? You get me! You‘re a Canadian at heart. 😆 18h
Suet624 @leahbergen @CarolynM I‘m a Bruins fan, so I really dislike Florida. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 18h
CarolynM @LeahBergen Commonwealth solidarity😆 18h
LeahBergen @Suet624 I do like Boston! 18h
LeahBergen @CarolynM Yesss! 😆 18h
CarolynM @Suet624 @LeahBergen I‘ve racked my brains, but there‘s no way of being polite about this. I hate the Bruins. Sorry. Just to confuse you, to the extent that I follow basketball (not much any more) I support the Celtics. (edited) 18h
LeahBergen @CarolynM 🤣🤣 The “hate” is a deeply personal thing, isn‘t it? I have that for quite a few teams. 14h
DebinHawaii A happy list of joys! 💛💛💛 Yay to friends & food & hockey & especially getting over a cold! 🎉 Thanks for joining in & spreading the joy! 🤗 13h
Suet624 Awww, that‘s okay. I love them enough for both of us. 8h
