Soul Food

It's amazing how a bunch of flowers will lift your spirits.  Kellan and Wil take their wares to the Wednesday night farmers' market in Placerville (as well as on weekends in P'ville and El Dorado).  Wasn't I the lucky one to receive these "leftovers" when Kellan came to get her milk and eggs yesterday?

To nourish the body as well as the soul, she also brought the first summer squash:  zucchini, patty pan, and crookneck, a small cabbage, and a bag of mixed greens for salad.  Dinner last night was squash sauteed with garlic and onion with a sprinkle of Chinese five-spice and mixed with rice left over from the night before to sop up the vegetable juices.  I think I'm on the winning end of this barter deal we've got going.

Temperatures started dropping yesterday, and this morning it's back to slippers and robe.  I can deal with that!

The flowers are gorgeous and your arrangement with just the perfect-colored vase makes it a thing of beauty. You are indeed a lucky barterer...but I bet they feel the same - that they got the lucky end. That's a real win-win. Glad you were in a robe when you wrote the blog. Here's hoping that your day continues to be a good one!
