Rainier Cherry LOVE

June 15, 2015

20150615-092319.jpg First off, let me explain my ‘WestWard’ moment, actually day, I had yesterday. I got so involved in being relaxed and preparing for having 3 of our nieces visit and stay overnight–that I completely forgot to write a blog post yesterday. It is the first time in over 4 years since I started writing the daily blog that I have missed a day. It was not until I just sat down in my favorite chair after making a fire just now that I even realized it. Wow, I was in a very relaxed state of mind. It was a pretty awesome day. We made paella last night, had dinner under the stars, laughed, drank rosé, told stories (they just got back from visiting their sister Caitlin in Alaska), laughed some more, and one of our nieces, Aisling, made cherry pie with Rainier cherries. Hence, the Rainier cherry love. What beautiful little golden nuggets of sweet fruit. Whether baked in a pie, eaten just as they are as a snack, nestled up next to a piece of cheese, mixed in a salad with fresh corn & arugula, the Rainier cherry is not to be missed. The season might be short, but it is so very sweet.
Until tomorrow… I promise.
