. Yesterday I went climbing with some friends in 90ish degree weather. We started at 8:00 AM so we'd be done before the most evil heat kicked in. Someone heard my phone ring around 11:30, but since I was on a rock, and it was down there on the ground, I didn't answer. What follows it the phone message I had. It made me laugh so hard.
"Hello, It’s 11:30 and I don’t know where you are, and I’m just staring at this gorgeous tomato on the counter and wondering if I can eat some of it. So call me if you get this because I can’t look at it any more. It just looks so good. I want to make a tomato sandwich. I hope that’s ok. I’m sorry. Bye."
What was great too was the sighs and moans accompanying the statements. I didn't bother calling her back since I knew it was already cut up. This was a tomato I had bought at the farm market on Saturday, when I went strawberry picking in the evil heat. Gorgeous gorgeous strawberries and well worth the sunburn and thirst (14 lbs I picked). And so after climbing yesterday I made a batch of jam, a strawberry/cherry pie, and strawberry bread. And then I collapsed from tiredness, but not before eating 2 pieces of pie and a huge hunk of bread.
