our brave little gooseberry bush gave us 6 pounds of fruit this year. He and i spent hours at the diningroom table, with our respective scissors, topping and tailing the giant bowl of berries between us. Kitten prowled about, occasionally dipping his head into the bowl, surfacing stems in teeth, dangling gooseberries. his green veined marbles to bat and roll along the wood floor.

this is summer.
