Saturday in Paradise

So yesterday Joan and I accomplished a lot while we were out shopping.  I did buy 3 pairs of Crocs that were half price, but don’t tell Dick about them, OK?  He may still have me on a shoe buying ban, but I am passing along to the thrift store at least three pairs of shoes that don’t feel or look so good anymore, so this is a wash, right?  I did find him a nice pair of black shoes that were 80% off (he wins the price for the best deal of the day, dang it).
And today Joan and I bought some nice veggies at the farmer’s market, where one nice farmer gave me the two piddly turnips that I wanted for a batch of soup (I didn’t want the whole bunch).  I tried to pay him, but instead he told me ‘God bless ya,’ so of course I gave him a smile and a big hug, along with my thanks!  Mayberry is such a nice place to live.
Then we were off to a local church that has a fab craft sale each year.  I brought home two BBQ plates for our dinner tonight.  Joan even found a new boyfriend.  Do you think Dan will be jealous of this guy?
So how is your weekend going?  Life is good here in Paradise.

Hey, I thought that was Dan! My bad... It was great seeing you today at the bazaar. There were some very cute ideas (and finds) there!

80% off AND Free turnips?! Wow! Even Dick can't be upset by that!

I did a bit of baking. Yum!

Big hugs :]

Ciao Sandy!!!
I'll not speak! (Why are all husbands so?)
I'm laughing: Google says you bought at a Farmer's market from Nice (France!!!)
This is a wash = ?
My week end is fine: tomorrow is Agnese's Confirmation!

Have a great Sunday!

You found Dick some shoes, you certainly deserve some for yourself! Especially getting some comfy ones and moving some uncomfy ones out! I'm sure the festivals were fun, I hated to miss them...but can't be everywhere.
