happy saturday

This actually looks surprisingly like my Craigslist-found bike, except mine has gears, a bell, and a fancy new basket.

I just said to Jon, “We’re having a very ‘No Impact Man‘ kind of Saturday.”  And it’s true! This morning Jon mowed the lawn with his fancy non-fossil-fueled Neuton mower, then we walked to our favorite local natural/slow food/soul food restaurant for brunch and also bought a dozen local eggs and chatted with the owner about the difference between commercial and local food.  I had biscuits and gravy, Jon had some gumbo, and we shared fries with bearnaise and a green bean salad.  MMMMM!  Then we came home, grabbed our shopping bags, and hopped on our bikes to go to the grocery store, and I got to test out my new bike basket which Jon so sweetly installed on my bike this morning.  Verdict: slightly wobbly and harder to steer, but it worked!  Not a bad way to spend a Saturday morning.  What are you up to this weekend?

  1. I finally made it to the Farmer’s Market for the first time this season! I do love it there, but it’s about a million miles from my house. I bought some fresh peas in the shells from the Hutterites, a container of peach-mango yogurt, and a chocolate mint plant.

    Now I’m making jelly for the first time ever! I saw some nanking cherries growing in the office park where I work and knew they’d go to waste if I didn’t rescue them. I hope it works, as it seems to be quite a bit of effort.
