Saturday 07.29.17 and Sunday 07.30.17

This weekend was wonderful!  John and I had such a great weekend!  Saturday started out going to a new diner for breakfast, then on to the Farmer's Market!  We found so many good veggies and fruit.  We bought green beans, potatoes, corn on the cob, Dragon Fruit, peaches, sourdough bread, yellow squash, lettuce, blackberries, heirloom tomatoes, 2 succulent plants and flowers, of course flowers!  Here a few photos of the things we bought:

The biggest blackberries I have ever seen!

Dragon Fruit by itself again

So when Jenny and the boys arrived for a visit on Saturday afternoon, Jenny brought figs, blueberries and kiwi.  We made my first every smoothie with Dragon Fruit, figs, blueberries, banana and kiwi.  It was so good!  We put it in a bowl instead of a glass.  It was so good as you can see!

Jenny and the boys stayed for dinner.  I made pork chops with apples and onions, corn on the cob and green beans with the new potatoes.  Everything was so good.  After Dinner Jack and I talked about seeing if the potatoes we planted in the Spring were ready yet.  We had alot of ran for about 5 days a while ago and I was so afraid they had rotted.  He and I dug them up and to our surprise there was a bowl full.  Here are some photos of our potato adventure:

We had such  a good time!

Today was a lazy one for John and I.  I slept until 9:00, that is very unusual for me!  Then we had breakfast on trays in our room and watched HGTV and DIY for a bit.  Next thing you know I am waking up and it is 1:00!!!  John had fallen asleep after he finished his breakfast too!!  I guess we needed the sleep after our rather busy day yesterday!  The rest of the day I read my current book, Kiss Carlo by Adriana Trigiani.  Love this book so far!!  I had another smoothie!  Had leftover Chinese for dinner and just chilled out.  That is my kind of day!  The weather here has been beautiful-no humidity and a nice breeze all day!

I hope you all had a good one!

  1. Seeing those blackberries makes me long for Autumn when I go blackberry picking with my mum.

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!
