A Gift Basket

fruit basket

Today was the paper route, nap and writing. But a nice gift was delivered this afternoon for Omer. It came from the church we are attending. For just two people, that's enough fruit to feed us for quite a while! I just had half a nectarine. Yum!

Catching up.
What a lovely basket, my fruit arrives in the back of a truck, a bucket, old box, carrier bag or potato sack. There is usually enough to feed a village!
I could do so much with that basket, but am not ungrateful for my gifts.
Wow you have been busy writing, I see by your last post and the Christmas cacti is gorgeous.

nothing like a basket full of fresh fruit. I was in the produce department for a while at the store I work at and would occasionally have to put fruit baskets together. It was tricky sometimes getting the fruit to all balance while you tried to wrap

That's a nice thing about the fruit basket. That's the kind of niceness I miss living in the city.

Rainfield- it was yummy! There were 3 nectarines that ripened on consecutive days... perfect.

wenn- it was very nice to receive

Vanilla- so much better than flowers that wilt right away, as gift bouquets often do.

Glynis- now you have me really curious... where on earth do you get your fruit? Are you talking about some local market, but you don't have a nice shopping bag?

Ann- Yes! I think that cellophane helped keep it together.

Ratty- Well, I confess, I'll take a small town any day. More people know you... for the good and the bad.
