Summer is officially here and we are officially in lake-mode! That means a visit to the farmer's market!
Rick was pleased to talk to the bread guy -- they shared bread stories, ideas, book recommendations -- and I expect to enjoy many of the results of the conversation!
I didn't buy any strawberries because we brought some north from Rick's garden -- but I sort of wanted to buy all of these!
The same with the lettuce -- that came up from my garden. But isn't this healthy and lovely?
And I deferred on flowers this time, since we were only there for a long weekend. But if I was going to be there, I might have bought this pretty basket!
But I did buy a bunch of these! What large, tasty radishes!
Then it was home to cottage chores -- clean up and sink repair. (Thanks for the new faucet, Rick!)
And of course, Lizzie spent the entire weekend as a lump underneath a quilt and comforter -- she crawls up under it from the side. Had to remove the blankets to take a photo but most of the time I just press the lumpy-bump like a squeaky toy to make sure
she's still with us.
She is! Can't wait to get up to stay!
