I had blog posts to write, critiques to do, hotel reservations to make, blogs to visit, banana muffins to bake, and a book revision schedule to outline. But first, I went to the Farmer's Market.
This was my first Farmer's Market trip of the year. I love them, enjoy visiting at least one almost every week, and buy a lot of things I don't really need. It's great.
Yesterday was a warm sunny morning in Northern Colorado so the excursion was a real pleasure, especially following the many rainy days we've had over the last couple of weeks. There are so many temptations at a Farmer's Market. Like kettle corn. Pumpkin chocolate chip bread. Fresh locally grown asparagus that costs so much you'd think it was gold-plated.
Instead, I bought a package of whole wheat tortillas (small) for mini-fajitas. Bought a round of Camembert and a round of ColoRouge from MouCo Cheese Company. And could not resist a loaf of unsliced honey wheat bread from one of the bakery stalls (where I sampled a tiny bit of that pumpkin chocolate chip bread which was very, very delicious).
This market is held in the parking lot of a large strip mall with several stores I visit whenever I can. Even though I have no time to read these days, I stopped in at Reader's Cove bookstore and bought a copy of The Bride's House by Sandra Dallas as well as Anthem by Ayn Rand. The attached coffee house was a great place to pick up an iced latte, so I did that as well. The deli next door was calling me to stop for a bag of their monster homemade double chocolate biscotti, but I finally got control of my appetite and my purse and headed for the car.
At home, I sat down at my computer and wrote the necessary blog posts. By then it was way too late for a nap, so I did a few household chores. That left me with one hour to relax before preparing those chicken mini-fajitas. With a Jesse Stone made-for-TV movie to look forward to, I knew there was little chance I'd finish the critiques. They're now on the list for first thing this morning, followed by the other tasks I failed to complete yesterday.
I'm sure your Sunday was way more exciting than mine. Want to share?
