Cherry Season Is Here At Galt

BEEN WAITING FOR THE CHERRIES SEASON.... And finally it arrives!   Ever since we came two months ago, we have been waiting patiently for a friend to call us saying "It's time!!"  Yes, cherries season is on and they are selling at $3 per pound in the markets.  So far we have bought two times and they were finished in no time.  Not a single one of us dislike eating them... LOL...

So when this friend called up to say that the cherries are ready to be plucked, we did not hesitate a day longer.  This morning after our breakfast, we drove a half hour drive to this couple's house cum orchard to start our "cherry picking" and of course, eating them as we did our job!  Just cannot resist...so addictive.  I think I ate one whole pound of cherries today... one by one, I popped into my mouth until I was really-really full.  Greedy Me!
And here we are..... all excited....
Before I start... let me do some "warm-up!"  LOL...
Ok, let's open ceremony here..... 
Ready... get set....GO!
Beautiful red cherries....
And soon.... our Harvest done!
When can I feel these again???
Time to relax and play with my new furry friend...
Having a nice breezy rest after a hard day's work...
LOL...
And my usual poses as we walked around the orchard...
We filled up two big bags from just one and a half trees...
Yes, we just could not finish plucking even from two trees..
Too many and there are a dozen of them there!
Our Treasure... it is nearly 10kgs!

Thanks to our friends' kindness and generosity...
 oh yeah, plus the wonderful tea snacks too!

  1. Some health benefits, I hear. Very expensive here - thankfully, I'm not a fan.

  2. It looks so beautiful there, and the cherries look perfect! So did the furry friend get a cherry?

  3. I love to eat cherries! You are so blessed with friends who are so kind and generous. Pluck and eat? No need to wash right? because directly off the tree is ok is it? I have seen documentaries where they pluck apples directly off the trees and eat them immediately without washing.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
