On fire!

Right now it is 2:00 and here is what I have accomplished so far today:

Woke up and made Korean pancakes (Ho-Ddeok) for the first time.  Poppy absolutely loved them.



Then we hopped in the car and drove an hour to go cherry picking.  We told Poppy we were going to a farm to pick cherries and the whole way there she kept asking where the 'bahhhh' (sheep) are.  Seriously, she probably asked about a million times.  And we had no idea if they would actually have any animals at this farm.  We were so relieved when we pulled up to see a bunch of goats in a pen.  They had food available for feeding the goats, but Poppy couldn't get the concept of holding her palm out flat, so this goat ended up taking a little nibble of her finger.  She didn't cry, but she did re-enact that assault a couple of times for us.


When she saw this little baby goat, she decided to try feeding him and things went much smoother...


After our visit with the goats, it was onto cherry picking.  So we went to the little store on the farm and asked where we should start picking and they informed us that cherry picking season is over.  I felt like saying "Um, did you see my daughter's shirt?  It has little cherries all over it!"  But instead, we were just re-directed to the raspberry bushes.


Raspberry picking was very serious business for Poppy.  One in the basket, one in her mouth.  Seriously, so many raspberries were consumed by this little girl today that she is definitely going to have some digestive issues over the next couple of days.  But there was just no stopping her from popping them into her mouth.


On the way out, we stopped by the naked cherry trees...


Then we stopped for lunch, drove all the way home and I've already managed to make a cherry clafoutis to bring over to my parents house tonight (luckily we stocked up on cherries at the farmers market yesterday) and finish my blog post of the day!  So pretty much, I'm on fire and tomorrow we will return to my regularly scheduled laziness. :)

Wow! You are on fire. Can you send some of that energy over here?

Sounds like a fantastic day! Way more productive than mine. I'm glad Poppy's finger wasn't hurt too badly by the mean goat.

I love that she had a cherry shirt to wear for her cherry-picking day! Even though there were no cherries to be picked - oh well, raspberries are just as good!

I've got to say, when I first read the title of this post I thought that something was *literally* on fire - not just you! This is a much better "on fire" though! Sounds like a wonderful day though!

(We're on the same wavelength today - my post is farm-related as well!)

Too funny we were both there on the same day! Glad you had as much fun as we did! What a great day.

I like the goat assault re-enactment. We had a similar abusive goat experience and we feel Poppy's pain. Literally.
I have to admit, raspberries would make me happier than cherries... glad you got at least one small, red fruit!
