Hey, this post isn't about television!
Um. What did I do this past week? Well, I napped a lot. I watched television. I read. I hung out on the computer. I cooked. I baked. I did some housecleaning. I napped some more. I didn't take any day trips. I basically goofed off.
But, it was worth it! I feel very relaxed. Onto the photos, as few as there are, for the week --
|Scotch Plains Farmers Market|
Plainfield has a farmers market each year, but that one's small, on a workday for me and I don't think they've started it yet. The Scotch Plains Farmers Market has several different vendors -- not just one farm with produce and flowers. Lots of produce limited only by the season, but there's also pastries, ethnic foods from different countries, a Picklelicious tent, even a local winemaker. Our growing season has been off this spring. I only bought some asparagus and a few beautiful green peppers.
I keep seeing this in new and different places each year. This time it's growing along a fence at East Front and Berckman streets in Plainfield.
|I love an iris|
The very colorful irises on Berckman Street a few doors down from this house have passed. These are rather small, but delightful.
Most of the allium blooms are gone as well. This one is hanging in there on Berckman Street.
Alas, these too are in their last days and most are already gone. Also on Berckman Street in Plainfield.
I had this fairly local microbrew (Easton, PA,) a few years ago in a bar on an evening out with a friend. I've been watching for it ever since. I'm not a huge beer drinker, but I enjoy many of the small brewery efforts. I found the Park Beverage in Scotch Plains is carrying it. Yay! I indulged. I bought a six-pack.
|Yep, they're red|
Flowers growing in front of a house on Berckman Street.
|Pretty in a planter|
|Yet another planter|
Yesterday was a picture perfect late spring day -- blue skies accented with harmless puffy white clouds, temperatures around 70. This is the view looking down East Second Street at the intersection with Berckman Street in Plainfield.
I ordered a lot of fruit in my Peapod grocery delivery this week. If you ordered $20 worth, they had a promo code for $5 off. I've made blueberry muffins, had dishes of blueberries and strawberries, made a version of mini-strawberry shortcakes, snacked on watermelon and bananas and made a big fruit salad. Mmm.
|One spoiled Vincent|
With me on a staycation almost to the literal sense of the pseudo-word, Vincent has been in his glory this past week. I obviously took the week off just to spend it as a cat couch, a cat playmate and a tender to all cat needs.
