Don’t you just love weekends? Sleeping late, then hanging out for a couple of hours in your PJ’s watching Star Trek? Hot coffee and Captain Kirk, oh ya, good times. As fun as that sounds, times a-wasting and today was the last outdoor Farmers Market till spring rolls around again. Some of the regular vendors will continue at City Hall over the winter, but it’s much more fun outdoors. Today was cool enough to wear a trendy sweater or jaunty cap, yet sunny enough to avoid gloves. The perfect day to attend.
The market tables simply overflowed with all manner of garden treasure. You’d almost think Fred Flintstone shopped here, look at the size of these zucchini and squash. They’d go good with his Brontosaurus ribs. Some of the turnips were as big as my head.
While Mr B was buying his usual fudge and cookies, I stopped to admire this colorful and low-cal collection of hand-made dish cloths. I wanted one in every color so my tea towel drawer could look just as pretty. I settled on three peach colored ones for a friend.
The best part of the market today was finding something special for our kitty cats, Petals and Blossum. Take a look at this long and lean beauty, in sexy silver. Multi-tiered with a little house to snooze in, pretty glam. I just knew the kitties would love it.
Unfortunately, level-headed Mr B reminded me that we don’t have that kind of room in the condo. Well, since when do things have to be practical? Finally, I had to admit it too. We didn’t have room for the ‘Penthouse View’ model so settled on ‘Cute & Cozy‘. There’s John, ‘The Cat Man’. He even delivered it at no extra charge (no he didn’t come down the chimney).
Thank’s John! Notice: John has a red coat and so does Santa….just sayin’.
While Blossum was all over it like sauce on ribs (Brontosaurus of course) Petals seemed happy to just sniff around. It might take some getting used to.
Hey, how’s the view from up there Blossum?
Christmas is still months away, but looks like Santa Claws might have come early, HO HO MEOW!!
