Farmers Market

Today is the day!

 I’ve been waiting since October for the opening day of our local Farmer’s Market. My friends and I have been planning and plotting our outfits, but keeping them private from each other. Wouldn’t want to spoil the surprise… We like to wear something that we have sewn, or knit that no one has seen before. This year however, it’s COLD! My outfit is jeans and a jacket. A handmade knitted jacket, and a handmade  knitted scarf. Very warm, because it’s freezing.

This is my friend Chrys in her perfectly knit, perfectly embellished, perfectly adorable Color Box Jacket. Mine is half way done, and not this bright. It’s bright , but not as sparkly as this. Stay tuned…

Now, back to the Farmer’s Market… There were bright red gigantic gorgeous strawberries, and flowers in their neon colors. There were baby ruby-red beets, and fragrant spicy garlic scapes…perfect fuzzy apricots for a dessert that I’m dreaming of…

Okay, it must be lunch time…

Can Someone Tell Me

Oh, someone, wherever you are in retail heaven don’t you know that I really need Trader Joe’s. I heart Trader Joe’s. The little juicey Clemantine oranges, dark chocolate candy bars, and the Two Buck Chuck… Lamb chops, blueberries and flowers.I haven’t even mentioned the freezer goodies. Let me count the ways… Can someone, somewhere please tell me why I’m not good enough to have my very own Trader Joe’s?

Most of you don’t even think of Trader Joe’s, because you hop in the car and drive a mile or ten. I live sixty miles away from the closest store, and can’t get there as often as I would like. I went today, and thankfully my Hubby came with me. Unfortunately he doesn’t heart Trader Joe’s as much as I do, so I had to hurry. He didn’t want to go there at all, but I made him. He wouldn’t admit it, but he liked it. (Except the part when he thought I hit a car in the parking lot). I didn’t!!

 Oh, yeah-and the two year old computer that we thought could be fixed that we found out is actually dead. Very dead.

Lunch at Elephant Bar helped! Especially the Won Ton Ice Cream Sundae…I guess I’m walking an extra mile tomorrow, if I can bend over to tie my shoes…
