Farmer's Market

Well, the surgery went fine, my recovery went fine, my scar seems to be healing nicely, and Joe & I have finally resumed our nightly walks, so I'm in a much better mood than I was a week ago. I was pretty gloomy last week because I couldn't walk or stand for very long, plus the freakin weather around here was like the dementors were looming or something. Friday was great though; the sun came out, I got to take off work and go to the GHO (as we call it around here), and I got to do lots of walking around the golf course. We had terrible storms Friday night though, and lost power for 8 hours. I taped the refrigerator door shut as soon as the power went, so all the food was totally fine, and we didn't have any other damage in our neighborhood, unlike the town next to us! Saturday was errand day, but Sunday was the Farmer's Market! This was the best one I've been to yet. I finished my market bag last week during the doom & gloom and filled that sucker up yesterday:
That giant green thing coming out of the top is a head of garlic with the tops attached! I had never seen this before, so I totally fell for that one. I also got the first corn of the season, bread from the baker dude, goat cheese from the goat people, and some sugar snap peas.
I got Rocco a little catnip fishy at the pet stand:

He likes it, but it's not nearly as exciting as watching the little black kitty that wanders around our neighborhood:

I wonder what he would have thought of this little one:

She (he?) was only 4 days old and SO cute! I had a feeling I might see Kris there, and I did! I am officially hooked and I have now convinced Joe to take me there on the motorcycle next weekend. It didn't take much convincing; It's Brew Fest next week! Free beer samples!

I'm glad everything went well with the surgery and you are feeling more like yourself!

So good to hear from you!
The weather has been so d*** wet, we might as well have webbed feet. So you're not alone in feeling gloomy. Glad to hear you back on your feet - literally and otherwise.

Glad to hear you are feeling better! I am hoping the endless rain is over too. It really was very depressing! Have you been to the Berlin Farmer's Market yet this year? I hope to check it out this Saturday.

I was struck by the name of your blog on Soul Woven Songs. I have a generation x blog. I love what you've done with this name/site. So, why do you think gen x has brought knitting back into style. I'd love to print some of your thoughts on this on my blog.

Blessings, jen

Glad you are feeling better. I've planted garlic before, but mine never looked as robust as that one. (I will try again with garlic this year, and now I have something to aspire to.)

Glad you are feeling better.

That garlic is amazing, I thought it was a leek at first.

Glad to hear you're all healed up! The Farmer's Market sounds like so much fun! We have one here but I never seem to make it....
