Some highlights of my week...
Last Friday our family and friends got together at Cool Creek Park in Westfield, IN to attend a Polka Boys Concert.
Dad and my bro
We go every year and always have a great time!
Our cousin Vickie and Sister Theresa and me
Mom, Dad, Sis, me, Bro
Me and my Shug
The next morning I donned my Birks, my hippie bag (which I got in Mexico) and went to the Farmers Market (I'm not this skinny, it was just taken at a great angle. I wish I was though!)
I love the Farmer's Market but I never know what to buy. I bake, we have a garden, we get beef from a neighbor who raises cows...
A lupine plant! SOLD!
Have you ever read the book Miss Rumphius?
Well it's won awards. It's a childrens book about a lady who lives in a cottage by the sea and she wants to make the world a better place so she plants lupine seeds everywhere she goes.
I've decided to be like Miss Rumphius! I planted lupine seeds this year and I have teeny tiny plants. Don't you think the leaves look tropical.
When I saw this older plant, I decided it was what I needed.
I think I'll go back to the market today if I can get there before the rain. (yes again)
Ok so I got off on a rabbit trail there.....
back to the Farmer's Market.
I left the market and on the way back to the car I saw this!!!
At a church!
So many things I could have bought, but this was all I came home with. I had seen a craft that could be done with these. And even if I don't do the craft, we use these all the time under our furniture.
I am in the process of getting rid of stuff, so I have to be very careful of what I come home with.
(anyone need any purses? I have a bunch....)
Every year I weave a rug at the fair. Our spinning group runs one of the cabins in the pioneer village.
My Shug and I went on a date on this evening.
no lines. Not even for the elephant ears!
On Monday evening these ladies came over for a visit. I haven't seen the one in the orange shirt for 20 years! She lived with the family across the street from us, during her and my senior year in high school. She became a very good friend to me. And the family across the street from us, growing up, happen to include the two ladies on the right. The one in the back was my best friend growing up. She moved away, and is now back. I hope we get to visit more often. The one in the orange shirt....well I reckon I'll have to go to Mexico to visit her! Maybe in February......
So that was some of the highlights of my week and I have to say I enjoyed every bit of it.
What fun stuff did you do this week?
