Snakes On The Blueberries

Listen up, city dwellers!  You may need to know this someday.  Calling all country folks! You may already know this…. What do snakes and blueberries have to do with each other? Hint:  How do you keep the birds from eating all your blueberries? Ah, do you see it?  Birds love berries, but are afraid of snakes.  Put fake rubber snakes all over your blueberry bushes, and the word is that birds are generally not brave enough to come steal the berries.  That’s the theory.  We’ll let you know how abundant (i.e.  protected) the crop is as the season progresses. Right now, the new crop is just coming and it’s beautiful. We might all look blue ourselves by the end of the summer. Below is a photo of what we picked yesterday.  For now, forget a recipe.  Wash them and eat them.  Or if you’re feeling extra decadent, add raw cream and a cup of tea. By later in the summer, we will need recipes.  But for now, they are such a treat that eating them straight off the bush is good enough for me. They say there a LOTS of blackberries on this property….. Bye, gotta go hunting!

Friday Love: Bam! Gate Breaking, Anyone?

Good Friday, Everyone!

Today, I’m sharing a story about how I accidentally accomplished something on my bucket list. I ran through an exit gate while looking the other way. The hood of my car is scratched up, and one windshield wiper is a mess, but let’s have a good laugh about how we never expect what “getting what we want” includes!

Let me know if you relate…

Enough with the Name-Calling

It seems to be a growing fad these days to call someone a narcissist, or declare they are toxic.
 
Political name-calling is similar—we assign politicians and voters to categories, and brush them off as if they are unintelligent, inferior, or even worthless.
 
By labeling others, we miss their humanity. We gloss over their struggle, their best effort at dealing with life. We dismiss them.
 
We do to them what we believe they are doing to others.
 
Look past a label, and in the soft light of day, there stands a person like you or like me, coping as best they can. At the end of the day, no friend, parent, or lover making conscious choices intends to be mean, or to ignore, or to embellish. There is always more to the story.
 
If we label others, then for sure we label ourselves. We trap ourselves into believing we are less than. Or not enough. Or we don’t give ourselves the time and forgiveness to work through our “stuff.” Maybe, if we stopped accusing others of narcissism, we could forgive ourselves for those moments when we were narrow-minded, inconsiderate, or afraid.
 
When it comes to labels, nobody wins.
 
So, my dear people, I suggest we peer a little deeper into ourselves to investigate a need to separate ourselves from others by tacking them with a label filled with disdain or scorn.
 
It is my wish that you view this video and take it to heart.
 
Much love,
Terri
