So hard to believe that August will be upon us by mid-week! Our weekend was full. How was yours?
We started by going to the Kimberton CSA farm Friday afternoon to pick up Colin & Mailing's share. Whew!
A ton of veggies. We kept some tomatoes, some carrots, a few peppers and some parsley. the balance we took over to Colin & Mailing's Friday night when we went over to feed the cats. Now their frig is full - lol. We also were able to pick a bouquet of flowers, but I forgot to get a picture of those.
Saturday I headed out to meet Dee at a barn sale at a local community center. It was very well organized and I managed to score a couple of things:
The Vera Bradley bag with bees on it had to come home with me - a perfect size for a sweater project and besides, it had my name on it! The book is one I had heard about but haven't read yet - 50 cents for that didn't seem bad.
After the barn sale we headed over to the local farmers' market where I picked up some mushrooms and corn. We had the corn Saturday night - very sweet, but extremely small kernels. I used the mushrooms last night in a pasta sauce - just onions, garlic, mushrooms and fresh tomatoes. So good.
We were back and forth to Colin & Mailing's twice each day to feed Talbot and Marcel. Talbot was more interested in hanging on his perch:
He loves his cat tree in the sun room. Marcel was a little more talkative and anxious for food:
Do you see that Marcel has both black and white whiskers? And his eyes are so pale. He's a sweetie (they both are).
I'm happy to say that the Porthos socks are finished!
I love the way they turned out and they are going to be for Colin (I think...or maybe my little brother...). No matter who they end up going to, a gift is finished.
The heat is building again here in Eastern PA - today and tomorrow should be very hot and humid. I'm hoping that temps moderate a little bit as the week goes on. Enjoy your week!
