I got up early this morning (well, the cats tried to wake me up, I didn’t get up until my alarm went off at 8 AM), did some cleaning around the house, and then went to pick Julie up to go to the farmers’ market. Somehow she is the only person I’ve gone with this season? This week was much better than the last time we went, which was the first market of the season. There’s a lot more produce by now. I got some lettuce, multi-colored carrots, cherries (for GG), cave-aged cheddar cheese (from the Amish!), and four buffalo burger patties (they came in a pack of eight, Julie and I split them). I really like the atmosphere of the PFM – it’s very small, and you can go from booth to booth and just buy a couple items from everyone. It’s like what markets in other countries are like – I wish they had it every day, or at least more than once a week, because I would totally do all my shopping there. Also at the market, we saw a table set up with brochures for the Phoenixville Area Time Bank. I think this is such a neat idea! If my community did something like this, I would definitely get involved. Think Phoenixville would let me edge in on their action?
After I put everything away at home, I got some lunch, and then in a fit of inspiration I cleaned the bathroom! (Still need to mop, I think.) Tonight I will probably do laundry, though I still have to fold last week’s laundry – I hate when I let it go this long. For now, I will curl up with Sacha (he’s so snuggly!) for the nap that I think I have earned. Oh, and tomorrow I will hopefully get out to Ikea and buy a new desk chair! My chair is five years old and was the cheapest one they sold at Staples. It’s always been creaky and weird, but lately screws have been falling out of it and it’s started making really loud sounds for no reason if I shift around while sitting in it. So it’s time to upgrade, I think.
One more thing I wanted to share, I discovered Strawberry Kitten via some pictures Rachel-Marie posted. This girl is German, she is stylish, and she’s adorable! Haha … I wish I put some effort into how I looked, instead of just wearing the same thing every day. But I feel like at this point, if I changed the way I dress, everyone would start commenting on it and I hate that. So I’ll continue going to work in black pants and a plain t-shirt with a cardigan, and equally boring outfits.
