My assistants were here at 7:30 this morning....love having help. Chester is doing better and better off leash and seems like a happy boy (even tho he was naughty last night and helped himself to some things that were not dog food).
The temperature dropped and I covered the girls....not with their heavy Rambos yet. We should still have temperatures above freezing for the next several days. What a weird winter. Mud in February?
At 10am Sally and Judy arrived and we were off to the Rochester Public Market. It felt like we were somewhere in Europe. I love doing things with these two friends as they are very game and we enjoy many of the same things.
You can find so many different things there...from fish to honey to mittens.
First we walked through the entire area to see where the best deals were.
On the way back we did our buying.
After we dropped our purchases off in the car, we headed over to the bakery.
Decided to have lunch at the cheese shop.
Such an "old country" kind of place.
Cheeses from all around the world.
We had paninis...all were different and delicious.
When we got home, I made up a basket for Jenny.
So what did I get today? Cauliflower, $2...Oranges from California, $2.50...3 heads of Romaine lettuce, $2...basket of grapes, $2...Sweet onions, $1...basket of red peppers, $2...5# carrots for the ponies, $2...
Panini rolls, $2...small Italian loaves, 60 cents each...2 pastries, $1 each...
I think that was all.
Home by 12:30 and got started on the applications sent in for the Brockport Arts Festival (that will take place this summer). It will be held in the Village, now that the road construction is complete. They are hoping for 100 vendors.
Chores at 5:15. Belle, Berlin and Abbe each had a pear (they were very ripe) and a piece of carrot...along with their Safe Choice and Beet Pulp. Three easy keepers.
We had a little spitty snow. So many plants are surviving this winter!
Dinner? Some of that crusty bread.
The salad...leaf lettuce, onion, red pepper, 1 orange and 1 banana. Yum.
Finished up the Mushroom Bourguignon....thank you Jill! We will have the soup tomorrow night. Jenny took some for her lunch today and loved it.
Time to get in there by the fire.
