Thank you to everyone who left kind comments yesterday.
Today I am feeling better. I’ve only almost cried twice. Ha Ha.
Today is a beautiful day in Florida. Absolutely gorgeous! It would have been a perfect morning run….if I was running.which I’m not, until Monday.
My plans to go to the beach were squashed so with a quick craigslist search I found a few garage sales. I’m looking for a bike; I tried to take our one & only bike out yesterday and it was a gigantic fail. The bike is about 12 years old, and at our old house it set outside in the weather so it’s in kind of rough shape. I was out of breath before I got to the end of my street. I don’t know how the gears work but it was in the hardest gear and it wouldn’t change.
Now it’s sitting out by the street hoping some one will pick it up. Most of the shrimpers around here ride bikes, so hopefully one of them will pick it up. Maybe it’s fixable. Chris looked at it a few weeks ago and he couldn’t fix it.
Well.. That was a long tangent about nothing. Needless to say, I did not find a new bike. I ventured over to B-ville to check out the farmers market.
There is a farmer’s market every Saturday from 8am – 1pm in downtown Brooksville on Main Street. On the 3rd Saturday of every month I hear that it’s a much larger market. On the 1st, 2nd, and 4th Saturday’s they only close off one street and it’s a smaller market. Hopefully I can remember on the 3rd Saturday in May and see what the big market is like.
There was a girl from a nearby restaurant walking around with fresh peach & strawberry smoothies. I opted for a peach smoothie!
It was so yummy but I drank it to fast and got a serious brain freeze.
I bought some 1 lb of fresh blueberries for $5. I don’t know if that’s a good deal or not, but I wanted some so I bought them. Publix has really small containers right now 2 for $5. I don’t know how big those containers are but the last time I bought blueberries from Publix there was mold in the container. Pass.
I bought my veggies today from Beasley Farm. They are a local farm in Brooksville that is open to the public every day. I was just checking out their website and realized they have a stand down the road from my office every Friday. SCORE! I definitely want to help support a local farm! Beasley farm had quite a large variety of veggies at their stand today. I even saw someone getting some eggs!
3 ears of corn, 5 tomatoes, 5 weird shaped zucchini, & 2 green peppers for $6
The corn was 3 for $1.25, Zucs were 4 for $1, peppers were 2 for $1.50, tomatoes were $2.25. I think that’s a helluva deal. $6 bucks for all those veggies. Especially the tomatoes. At Publix tomatoes are $1.99/lb. Insanity.
So I spent a total of $11 at the farmers market. Sounds like a deal if I ever heard one!
I also went shopping @ Bealles, which is less exciting. Okay, actually it was pretty exciting. I didn’t take pictures of what I bought, but I’ll tell you. I bought 3 fishing shirts for Chris; one wicking long sleeve shirt, one long sleeve cotton shirt & one short sleeve “Save our Gulf” shirt. For me I bought one long sleeve fishing shirt, one tank top, and one dress. I spent a total of $54, and saved……….$98!!!! Wahoooooo!!!! Everything I bought was at least 50% off, and some of Chris’ shirts were 70%. YES! Love buying winter clothes in the summer! I don’t know if Chris will be quite as excited, but I’m stoked.
I’m just amazed at how nice our weather is today. It’s been so hot for the last several weeks and today has been tolerable. I went downstairs with the dogs and took some pictures of them.
Do you see the cattle trail that Wyatt has wore down in the grass? That’s because he thinks that he is a race horse and gallops towards the front door whenever we call him to come inside.
and now my favorite picture of all…. Diva is in so much trouble when Chris gets home.
I think Wyatt started this hole, but Diva is making it worse. Naughty girl.
I gotta go finish folding laundry and them make a trip to the grocery store. We are having pizza for dinner. Well, I might be eating alone since Chris just told me that he will be getting off late….of course.ugh.
You only have one life, so live it !!
