Saturday Roamings

John and I are doggy sitting Jenny and Kevin's dog, Cash.  Kevin dropped him off this morning.  Jenny, Kevin and the boys are heading up to Asheville for the weekend.  They will pick Cash up sometime tomorrow.

After getting Cash and Teddy settled John and I headed out for breakfast and then on to the Farmer's Market.  We had a lovely breakfast and I kept mine within my WW points :)!!  We got to the Farmer's Market and was it in full swing!!  I got my Meyer Lemon Tree!!!!!!  I had one that was about 5.5 feet high and produced wonderful lemons.  When we were in the apartment waiting for our house to be built it died.  I have felt awful about that and wanting to get one so bad.  I bought the one pictured below today and it has 4 lemons on it!!!  Can't wait to have them.  It takes 7-9 months for a lemon to turn yellow  and ripe enough to harvest, but they are the vest!!  This lemon tree was $15 and I think that is such a huge bargain!!

John also bought me these flowers:

Then I bought 2 soy candles.   One is Spiced Orange and the other is Sage & Citrus.

Then I had to bring these lovely peaches home with me.  Maybe I will make a peach crisp!!

When Kevin brought Cash down to our house, he also brought my Origami Owl Necklace I bought at Jenny's party.  Here it is:

These are the little charms inside the necklace.  An initial "C", flipflops, a cross, a heart that says Nana, a little owl, a horse and a disc that says Mom.

I forgot to post this the other night.  Here is the wonderful Caprese Salad I made for dinner with tomatoes out of our garden and fresh homemade mozarella cheese with the basil I grew!!

We are back home and John is taking a nap.  When I am done posting this post I am going to work on the mystery knit along lace project.  I need alot of light, so the floor lamp will be right by my side for sure!

Hope everyone's weekend is going along well!

I loved making my pickles that you commented on....and I love bread and butter pickles! (That's pretty much what million dollar pickles taste like) :-)
I did weight watchers a long time ago and lost 55 lbs....then got pregnant with Carson and gained it back. :-/ I started working out a couple of weeks ago, and have been watching what I eat....I can already tell a huge difference in my stamina and energy levels....and yesterday I realized my littles saddlebags on my thights were gone! Yay!! :) I have a long way to go, but it's a good start! :)
Have a great week Sherri!

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!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
