a week end to myself

So the men went off camping in the 1000 islands. i had the week end to myself. i took myself to dinner and stayed out to catch a sunset right here in the village,on the Erie Canal. And then this morning i got up at 5am and went Downtown to the big farmers market, which we call the Public Market. Talked to a very interesting woman. Since we have been trying to eat according to the Paleo way of eating. I ‘v been making alot of our own food. I can ..I’m home. and i like to cook..so its a win win.

i always try to get to the market early… i don’t like crowds… and i guess a lot of others feel the same way

i don’t know what any of you do when your standing in line but i snap to my hearts content.. mostly because i don’t like to wait.. and this keeps me occupied

Phil also makes these bars and breads. i bought one for Dave.. with blueberries and other goodies in it. she uses honey for a sweetener.

  2. I publication filled with so many stories… thank you ☺ 5 am is so early to me! I think I’ve seen so few sunrises, when kid I disliked crowded markets but that’s because adults use to walk without see children, so now I can tolerate them.
