Sunny Saturday

I have shared with you that Saturday is our family fun day.  It is also our very important farmers market day. I will not get on my soap box but if you have a farmers market you owe it to you health, and to the people that grow your food to shop at a farmers market. For one I spend half or less of what I spend in a store on my produce and other goods. For two more of that money goes to support the small family farms that grew my food.(If you have not read Barbara Kingsolver’s Animal, Vegetable, Miracle HIGHLY recommend it) For three the taste! Oh my the taste. I cannot even begin to describe the differences in taste between an in season beet at the market and a beet from the store. And while I climb down from the soap box that I said I won’t not get on let me share this photo with you.

Beautiful no? Lots of people and Kids having a great time. There is music too. Some times it is a band. Often it is a local character who plays the accordion. He was there this morning playing away. Little and I said hello to the cats (the local shelter brings one up for adaption to find new loving homes) and we heard this voice.  As we got closer I realized that a lady who was shopping, just like the rest of us, had put down her bag of produce and began to sing with the music. She was singing Italian Opera and it was amazing. Beautiful and special. A truly magical moment that brought tears to my eyes as it did many others in the ever growing crowd of onlookers. She sang two songs. Got a humongous round of applause and cheers, picked up her bag and finished her shopping.

 

Little and I did our weekly shop and then went to my folks house for lunch. After lunch a friend joined us and we all made yogurt cake.  We used the recipe in Bringing up Bebe by Pamela Drukerman, which we had both just read and loved. We may add it on to our Saturday Traditions. Actually we helped, but mostly Little made the cake.

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
