What a day!

What a fun, low stress day yesterday!

River officially turned 8 weeks old, so we treated her with Frontline.  It makes me unreasonably happy to see those awful little fleas shrivel up and die.  We treated the cats and the other two dogs too.

Tim and I headed out to the Farmer's Market.  I love it so, so much.  It's so much fun to wander the aisles and see the wide variety of different produce.  One place had 8 different kinds of eggplant! I don't eat eggplant, but some if it was so pretty I really wanted to buy one just to look at it.

The scent of scuppernongs and muscadines was heavenly.  If I ever get a house of my own, I'm planting muscadine vines all over the place.  I can't smell them without remembering the home I grew up in and the summers where I played outside almost exclusively.  If I wasn't playing outside, I was reading outside.  Ahhh.

We ended up buying 10 pounds of tomatoes (only $0.69 a pound) and a few green peppers.  Tim also found a bag of raw peanuts, which made his life complete.   I regretfully passed by the muscadine cider.  I'll definitely be heading back later to grab a jug!

We ran a few other errands and stopped by Chick-fil-a for a small ice cream.  Yum yum, I could eat it every single day.  I'd be as fat as a pig, but it would be worth it!

We came home and made another batch of salsa.  I let Tim add in some habaneros (the last in our garden). Unfortunately, I ran out of canning jars.  I guess I'm going to have to buy another dozen or two of the small 8 oz. jars.   Once Fall officially hits, I'll need them for apple and pumpkin butter anyway.

It was a day where not a whole lot of exciting events happened- it's not like I came on here to say We went to Disney World! Over all though, it was a fantastic day!



  1. You know Frontline does NOT work for fleas around here?

  2. It doesn't work at the coast? :( I have to make sure to alternate what I use every little bit or they get immune to medicine around here :/. Blah!
