Life is a bowl of cherries.



What does that mean? It must be something good as a bowl of cherries is a divine thing.

You know that part in Little Women when Amy is desperate to buy limes? Not an ipod or cell phone but...limes?

While today is a nice thing to have so many things at our fingertips, one cannot help but envy the appreciation of something as simple as a lime. I have two daughters around the age of Amy. They wouldn't like limes.




But they would like cherries. A big bowl full. To be eaten with barefeet dangling off the porch and pits to be expelled with a talent equal to or better than boys. It's always a good feeling to be better at something than boys.


Do you like that Pyrex pattern above? Check out Leila's blog. She is actually giving away a piece with the same pattern. Can you imagine that?! I know, I know but she is nice and we should all learn from this.

I just saw that same bowl at my antique shop I go to! I didn't get it though. (Hubby was with me)

With JeffO here, a bowl of limes usually means a pitcher of margaritas. We like limes. We like Jeff. Life is a Bowl of Limes usually means happy times are here!
