Life is just a bowl of cherries! An interesting saying.
Today was a good day. It was finally sunny here, and warm. I wore shorts for the first time in many months. I ran errands. I deposited money. I picked 1.5 pounds of sweet cherries from my own cherry tree, with more on the tree that are ripening. This year I got to them before the birds, the deer and the squirrels did. Hurrah! Hurrah!
They taste very sweet and are filled with sunshine and sweet rainwater.
Some days are not a "just a bowl of cherries". One of my favorite artists, Mary Engelbreit, said it nicely in her work below. I have a copy of this very poster in my home. Helps me to laugh when I need it.
Now every time I see a "bowl of cherries" I think of this illustration. Cracks me up, it's so cute and colorful.
