July 5 – One of our good memories of our last trip to Montreal is raspberry picking with Sacha and Valerie’s family. When we drove to their house yesterday the sign said “closing soon” so we tried our luck today and found out we were likely picking on the last day of the season. It was perfect since it actually took some work to fill our basket. As I sit here I plan to go eat a few berries while I clean up the last of our stuff in the kitchen – the house is quite. I am the only one awake. Would anyone miss the berries if I eat them all?
