Saturday is the one day of the week that I try not to do anything but what I want to do. This usually means meeting with my knitting peeps at Dorothy Lane Market. Dorothy
Lane Market is a local market - very much like Whole Foods.
Everyone there seems to thoroughly enjoy their job which is refreshing. There is always fun stuff going on in the store and/or in the parking lot. Yesterday, they were having a pork taco cookout in the parking lot. They'll continue having cookouts throughout the summer.
When we entered yesterday, this is what greeted us. Too cute! They were selling a load of pineapples and Pina Colada Pie. Yum!
There is an upstairs with lots of tables and chairs. There's even a piano with player on Saturdays. They always have the tables decorated with something. Yesterday, each table had a sweet Japanese Iris in a vase. Pretty!
Yesterday, there were four of us knitting. A small group but still plenty of laughs to be had. I can't tell you how much I look forward to Knitting At Noon on Saturdays! So refreshing - it just recharges my battery. Karen was knitting a scarf, Ande was making a shawl, Mom was knitting a dishcloth, and I was working on a toe-up sock.
Last night, I made my list for soaps to restock and hopefully will be able to get back in the soappot soon. It's been toooooo long! I can't make soap fast enough to keep up with all the ideas running through my sudsy brain! I have some new techniques and fragrances to try. Ooooooh! Wish I had more TIME!
After I finish this report for work, I'm headed outside! Mom and Daddy are coming over and we're going to tackle the raised beds. I've decided to clean them completely out which means pulling up the herbs that are living and sticking them in pots to be moved elsewhere. I'm going to rotate my tomatoes this year and not have a designated herb garden. Instead, I'm going to plant my herbs among the flowers in the new area we are going to landscape. We're also going to attack the many dandelions that have decided to take root in my flowerbed. We have many inches of birdseed trash - hulls, etc. - to rake up. Hopefully, there'll be time to plant the two big pots beside the front door. It will feel so good to get outside and get my fingers in the dirt! And, it will be nice to have help!!!!!
I just need more weekends!
