We Swear This is the Last Time We're Going to the Farmers Market in 2012

Even though Scott said he was sick of crepes like two weeks ago he again made crepes for breakfast. 



It was really nice out today and even though we really didn't need any more vegetables we decided that today would be the last day to go to the farmers market for real.

Who can say no to brussels sprouts on the stalk?

As we got out of car we saw Emma running towards us. Good timing on our parts.

She totally scared me.

The farmers market had tons of squash, but I'm not a big fan of them. There are just too few recipes. It's got a place on our "we're sick of this list" that is topped by cucumbers.

It's pretty crazy to be getting farm fresh produce at the same time Christmas trees arrive at the market.


Afterwards we stopped by the Eastside Coop to pick up a few things.

A few things turned into a lot of things.

Our loot at the farmers market. Pie pumpkin, spinach, carrots, red cabbage, a bunch of kale, brussel sprouts and onions. All for only $19.

We've been eating vegan lately,  but not on purpose. We discussed getting chicken and saw that a rotisserie chicken was cheaper than buying a whole chicken. We also loaded up on cheese.

We ate the drumsticks for lunch with a side of the best string cheese we've ever had.

Scott had a photo shoot today and prepped for that. 

I'm shooting businesses for Google Business photos as part of my freelance routine. This time I shot Doc's Gym over on Penn and Lowry. I take typical editorial style photograhs and also create Street View tours of the businesses. I like doing the shoots, but getting clients takes a lot of leg work.

Tyler and Emma asked us if we wanted to come over for chili and games. I offered to make some gluten-free cornbread.

I did laundry on what may be the last day to hang stuff outside.

While Scott was gone I cleaned the kitchen.

In case you were wondering how my chalkboard jars turned out. Much easier to distinguish what is what.

I then snack on crackers and cheese.

When Scott got back we went to Babies R Us to do some Christmas shopping. 

Then we headed over to Tyler and Emmas.

My chili started out traditional.

Before I knew it I had a fiesta of a bowl. Avocados, yum!

We played with Olive after dinner and before she went to bed.

Then it was time to play Catan. Scott and I were completely lost after not playing in a long time.

They have the expansion pack for it and it makes the game overly complex.


About 20 minutes in the game Scott gave up hope of winning and quit. He entertained himself by reading the manual during the two hours he waited for our game to finish. I ended up winning which was the first time I ever won that game.

I feel like I always get caught in the middle of the board. There wasn't much of a chance for me, so I thought I'd study the game. I now know you can block intersections with a settlement. We'd never played that way. Next time I won't be such a sore loser.

Broken Bones and Labor Day

As you can see I am wearing a sling. Why you ask? Well it all started Thursday morning when I being the nice person that I am decided to help out Scottie and his roomates move into their new house. Everyone had gone back to their old house to get more stuff and I stayed behind to finish unpacking things out of my car. I was walking back to my car and thought it would be faster if I went in between a trailer and a van. Being the clumsy person that I am I somehow tripped in the process, ripping my jeans as well. Not thinking I had broken my arm I continued to carry things into to the house. My arm did hurt a little, but I thought it was no big deal. I had to leave for work. When I got home I noticed a huge bump on my elbow, I became worried at this point and called my mom. She said it was probably just bruised. I put ice on it as I was driving, when I got to the mall I saw the bump had gotten bigger. I was really concerned now so I thought I would go to first aid and see if someone the

Sushi Sunday Returns

Today I woke up before Scott and surprised him by making big pancakes. I was so excited, but I had to take a quick shower first. He didn't know I was making breakfast and woke up too late. He had to scarf it down before heading to work. I'm not going to complain that Scott had to work on a Sunday again. Yea it sucks, but I need to be more thankful that he has a job. It may not be the best he's had or the worst and the pay isn't phenomenal, but life isn't always fair. Instead of dwelling on the things I don't like I need to be more happy about the things in life that are great.  After he left I spent time on-and-off working on this puzzle. It's a lot easier to see the many colors when the suns out. I think I found about 3 more pieces.  Then I ordered more seeds online . Last year we figured we had enough, but then we realized we really want to grow kale and chard and popcorn. I know it's a little early to be getting excited abo

Mexico 2020 - Guanajuato

While planning our Mexico trip Scott discovered a city "nearby" that he said looked cool. He originally told me it was like an hour away.  I think I said a few hours away, but maybe. Except when we got our bus tickets it was actually 6 hours.  Sometimes you need to take a journey for a good adventure. Or something. We picked up this model bus for Theo at the bus station. Also he's claimed the Frida backpack.
