SATURDAY AT THE FARM

Yesterday was the first Saturday off for the summer.  It was strange not working on a Saturday.  I'm sure I'll get used to it in no time, though.  My foot is still really swollen and hurting so I didn't do much of anything.  The one thing I did do was go to the farm.  For the rest of the summer I will be going every other week (pay weeks) to get their good food.  I always try to keep it under $20 and just made it this week.  But look what I got.

Wax beans, cheddar cauliflower, tomatoes, spring onions, cucumber and zucchini.
 We had the wax beans for dinner and they were delicious.

I have been looking for something to put in the little planter I got for the outside table.  I was thinking of marigolds since the planter is brown, but found these pretty purple-pink impatients and got them. 


I was surprised at how nice they look in the planter.  The dirt on the table is from me just planting them.  They look good with the white table and the blue chairs.


Other than that I didn't do much of anything except lay around with my foot up.  It's feeling better this morning so I am going to go to church. I can't wait until Tuesday to see the doctor.  I don't think it's broken but something is going on.  A sprain?  Arthritis?  All I know is that I can't keep going on like this.


My friend, Marion, is a real estate agent.  She is on a team with her friend Chris.  I recommended them to my co-worker Diane when she wanted to sell her dad's house after his death.  On Friday the settlement went through.  When I got home from work Joe asked me if I knew anyone named Chris.  I said yes and he said there was a box from her in the mail.  I opened it and there was this beautiful cutting board and knife with all kinds of treats attached and a note thanking Joe and me for our referral.  That was so nice.  I haven't eaten anything yet, but Joe had one of the amaretto cookies and a bag of cashews with white chocolate and pomegranate seeds and he said they were wonderful.  I'm looking forward to trying the Monterrey jack cheese and black pepper water crackers and the candied fruit slices.  We are going to enjoy this so much.  And I love the bamboo cutting board too.


I need to go.  I'm baking a peach and blueberry long cake for church this morning.  I want to do it before I take my shower and get dressed.  It's no good going to church with flour all over you.

Have a good Sunday everyone!
