I'm sure I could stop if I wanted to. This would've been the perfect year. The economy is terrible, I'm trying to cut expenses (like getting rid of that land line nobody uses!), it's already costly enough buying enough groceries to feed everyone three meals a day for a week, and so on. But damn it, I am not ready to give up my annual Rainier cherry indulgence. This year, it cost over $11 for a bag. But I bit the bullet, and here they are.
I'm not making a cake like last year. I don't make cakes any more, for some reason. Maybe it's the economy. But I sure am enjoying these cherries. After a day of scrubbing hardwood floors and waiting out tornado warnings in the basement, this was exactly what I needed.
I don't splurge on many things, but this is one tradition I'm not stopping any time soon.
