Good morning, everyone 🙂 It is absolutely pouring here!
This Saturday, Chris and I got up early and went to the South Bend Farmer’s Market. It was so great! After a little confusion as to how to get there (thanks in part to Google Maps and yours truly), we found it, parked, and headed inside. I think that I’ve found a new place to do all of my produce shopping. The market is open year round, several days a week, and is completely enclosed, which was nice. It was much bigger and had more variety than the one we tried in Massachusetts, and was even bigger than the one in Lafayette, IN, which we used to go to all the time while at Purdue. We’ll definitely be heading back. Here are some photos from our trip (people there thought it was so funny that I was taking pictures of their stalls!):
I’m assuming that “lope” is short for “cantaloupe”
Lots of people (and who’s that handsome guy on the right?!)
Look at the size of those turtles and caramel apples – huge!
All nice and enclosed
Lots of fresh produce
More vegetables – yum!
If I had been smart, I would’ve prepared the menu for the week and gone in with a shopping list, but I didn’t plan ahead. As a result, we only got a small “sugar baby” watermelon, some homemade apple butter, and some homemade pear butter. When we got home from the Farmer’s Market, this is what we saw waiting for us in the window of our townhouse. I was so glad that I had my camera handy 🙂
He was sitting on top of the couch, sunbathing and people watching. He’s not allowed on the couch unless he’s been given “permission”, but he looked so cute that we didn’t scold him.
Later that evening, we headed to our local theater for the first time. It’s alright, but nothing like the great big, fancy schmancy theaters in Massachusetts that we’d gotten used to. We were vacillating between watching “GI Joe” and “The Time Traveler’s Wife”. I’ll let you imagine how thrilled Chris was at the prospect of watching The TTW, so we opted for “GI Joe”. It was okay, but nothing more than that. I thought that they did a pretty poor job on the special effects. Chris liked it, but I’m not in any hurry to see it again.
The rest of the weekend was just as relaxed. I did some cleaning, some laundry, some shopping, some cooking, some napping, some reading, some walking of the dog, and some talking to friends. I’m looking forward to my meeting tomorrow with the nurse recruiter. Hopefully, she’ll have some good options for me.
