Saturday Farmer's Market, Matthews, NC

This morning John and I woke up at our regular during the week time 5:45!!!  We were at the Farmer's Market in Matthews, NC by 7:05 a.m.  They ring a bell at 7:15 and then all the people are off to purchase all there wonderful home grown, homemade items.  There are veggies, flowers, herbs, eggs, meat, cheeses, honey, pottery, soap and breads to buy.

John and I purchased honey, brown eggs, yellow squash, cukes, potatoes, cinnamon rolls and flowers.  John has already eaten his organic cinnamon roll and he said he was soooooo good!  I put the flowers I bought in my crystal vase and that makes me smile!  We will have the brown eggs for breakfast tomorrow and put some of the local honey in our tea in the morning.  

Here are some photos I took when we got home from the Market:

I forgot to show everyone the beautiful yellow begonia John bought me for my birthday.  I've put it on our kitchen table.  Every morning I look at them and they just make me smile-such a lovely yellow! 

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend!!  I will be watching the Olympics, reading my new book, Gone Girl and knitting.  Enjoy!!!

What bounty you found at the farmer's market! I love that yellow begonia. I had one on my porch last year and looked all over and couldn't find one this year. I never used to be crazy for yellow flowers but I have discovered I really love the pop of sunshine they provide- xo Diana

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
