Not so... fresh

Strawberries were on sale today, so while picking up a rotisserie chicken for dinner, I grabbed a two pound container of the juicy, sweet delights.  They looked divine.  As I drove the short distance home, I mentioned to Chi that putting a few strawberries on a plate of sugar would make a beautiful still life.  She chuckled and said, "Yeah, as long as I get to eat it and the sugar afterward."  I agreed.

Then I got sidetracked on the computer when I got home.  I checked e-mail, wrote my Educational Specialist entrance essay, and prepared a blog post.  My kids called for the chicken (they didn't want the rice side, just the fowl).  I delayed.  And they ate.  Ate all but one of my precious strawberries, leaving the tufts of leaves and a tiny bit of fruit from each to mock me. 

"Sorry, Mom."
