10/16: I read something recently about if you think you need to speed up then slow down.  Good freakin' idea.  I watched with wonder as she picked and ate her blackberry breakfast from the lowest branches, and I sipped my morning tea.  Then my tea was gone and I followed her lead.  Turns out this mug (made by our delightful friend Suzanne Babineau), piled high, holds two cups of blackberries.  These two cups that didn't fit in our satisfied bellies will find their way into some baking on a blustery winter's day.
