It had been a month since I made it over to the Wednesday Market.
No idea how that is possible, but it was true. Our refrigerator was bare. The only fruit we’d been eating were bananas, and they certainly aren’t local.
So we braved the heat. I threw on a skirt because I couldn’t bear wearing pants. We went to check out whether the calendar or the weather was right about which season it actually was.
Turns out, even the market was a little confused. But we walked away with end of summer tomatoes, beginning of fall figs, flowers, little gem lettuce, bacon and sausage, apples, peppers for days, and a few squash for good measure.
I’ll admit, I’m ok with this October heat wave if it means tomatoes will stick around a bit longer. But I really, really can’t wait for sweaters and boots and comfy warm clothes…
I’m facing my weekly “opposite schedule of the world” sadness this afternoon. Especially today. Everyone is gearing up for a fun, long weekend, and my “work week” is just beginning. My long weekend is drawing to a close.
But wait! What a wonderful weekend it was! There was the market, there were hundreds of cookies and other goodies made with Sydney from Curating My Cooking, there were peonies, there was chocolate strawberry banana bread…
And there was Brad’s 30th birthday!! So there were nutella bacon pop tarts (yes, they were amazing…), car washes, prescription sunglasses and a meaty dinner at Animal with some really amazing friends…
I hope all of your fun, long weekends at the beach are nearly as fun and delicious as mine was. Plus, I am so lucky that my mom and sister are flying out from Maryland tomorrow, and I have a good amount of time away from work to spend with them!
Hooray for visitors! And hooray for weekends – no matter which days they fall on!
