Craziest weekend. Getting ready for out of town guests, Z’s birthday festivities and coloring outside the lines. I haven’t had much to say lately or maybe my brain has been too full to be creative-I’m not really sure. The weekend seems noteworthy though. Z turned thirty four on Saturday so I struck out from the house at 7:30 for one of his favorites that we never buy, doughnuts. That is only the beginning of the madness. A timeline maybe seems in order.
7:30 left the house – strangely felt a kiss of …is that cool air? Fall starts tomorrow.
7:45 hit Charlies Gourmet Bakery for a few cookies for this week’s lunch. (I don’t bake as a rule and felt like giving Z a prolonged birthday treat)
7:47 ran into a training race? What? drove alongside people running. Ignored GPS turn left every block for about 50.
7:57 what the heck. Now what. Turned right.
8:07 This is obscene. Am now downtown and there are tourists taking pictures. What time did they get up?
8:17 finally hit Bakery Plus for my $5 worth of doughnuts. Ate one in the car out of frustration.
8:27 decided I should sit and wait for Freshfields Farm to open at 9 so I can counteract the cookies and doughnuts with fruits and vegetables.
8:57 they open three minutes early. Thank goodness.
9:07 check out and head home with 5 bags of produce that will speak to a major mess tomorrow.
9:27 Home again with Z’s birthday doughnut.
Did this really all just happen? Did I really buy all this produce? Fresh eggs, Raspberries, Thai chillies, Jalapenos, Kirby Cukes, Lemons, Limes, green beans, snap peas, Onions, fresh herbs. I have just set my day tomorrow in motion because no one in their right mind could eat all this. We’ll see…
