Farmer’s Market & Serendipity.

May 16, 2010

I was supposed to have a play date with a Woman I only know on the internet. As luck would have it, both her youngest child and Natalie are both sick. We agreed to reschedule. Not wanting to waste a second of my day off I made a bargain with the devil (Zach) and agreed to iron 3 chef coats, 3 aprons and 2 pairs of checks in exchange for him driving me cross town to a farmer’s market I’d never been to. I thought I got a bargain, but now that I’m home exhausted and ready to take a nap, there is a pile of whites waiting to be starched.

The weather was perfect for being outside.

The flowers were in bloom. I love the colors of spring.
I really find myself wishing I had a yard of my own. City life has it’s disadvantages.

Natalie loves flowers.

There were a lot of baked goods around. We had cream puffs. And we bought 2 loaves of an amazing artisan bread. And surprisingly about 1/2 of each loaf made it home. We nom nomed it though the parking lot. We bought an asiago basil loaf

and a cranberry walnut loaf.

Someone was also nice enough to give me a sample chicken wing.
We also tasted a few wines by a local winerey. We bought the merlot, and I plan on drinking every lovely drop the second it turns dinner time.

Here is where the serendipity part comes into play. As we were walking back to the car we noticed tents in the park across the street. We decided to go investigate, and found that it was a highlands ranch music festival.

We perused

And acted silly.

And found hidden fungus.

The only low point of my day is when we chanced across a yarn store called sticks. And as I raced to the door in almost a full sprint, I saw the sign on the door that said closed. THEY ARE CLOSED ON SUNDAY. So, this is the closest I got to yarn loving.

Well, I better get going… these coats aren’t going to iron themselves.


Stardate: 2009 or A picture update.

June 23, 2009

Update goes as follows: I’ve had one of those weeks where so much has happened it becomes too overwhelming to blog about it. So I’m going to stop procrastinating and post.. They are out of order but I’m sure it doesn’t matter.

Edited to add: My best friend got married!! Lisa is now Mrs. Patrick Hale
Pics to follow soon i’m sure

We went to the Capitol Hill Peoples Fair, Natalie loved seeing all of the people.

I finished a hat for David, His birthday isn’t until the 28th of July but I might not see him then. Good to finish early. The pattern is Armando I can’t say enough good things about this pattern. I love it.

We finally broke in the swimming pool at our apartment. Natalie, Alaina, Nathan, Tabatha and I went swimming. The girls are like little fishes. They LOVE the water.

Lisa, Shira and Liam at the rehersal dinner. I’m so glad that we rehearsed. It was a great party with tons of good food.

Just had to share a picture of the jewels I wore at the wedding. They are similar to the crystals I wore at my own wedding 100 years ago. I had to mod the ear rings to fit in my little plugs. No one could tell the difference.

Ha. these pictures are way out of order. This is one of the PG shots from the bachlorette party. That pitcher drink is called a “Bionic Beaver” it comes wth 5 straws for a reason. Shira does not like the beaver, It got her thrown out of the Squire once.
