We're visiting family this weekend – enjoying a little break after the hectic end of the school year.
It's hot as blazes down here – in the 90's every day – but the weather is beautiful if you don't mind the heat and humidity. Which, ironically, I don't seem to mind as much as I used to. I'm sure it's the fact that I'm almost half the size I used to be. There's a lot less of me to heat/cool these days and I seem to gravitate more towards heat than cool now. Quite the change.
But enough about me.
I wanted to share with you what Mom and I did today.
We went to the farmer's market.
They have a weekly Saturday market down in Forsyth Park. If you're ever in Savannah for a visit, it's worth a trip – even if you only go to people watch. But Mom and I managed to go together and we had such fun. They had beautiful veggies, organic fruits, meat vendors (with organic, grain fed beef, etc.) It was a bonanza of goodness.
We cooked some of these patty-pan squash for dinner tonight. Grilled them with olive oil, garlic and salt/pepper/onion powder. Soooo good.
It was fun to hang around with Mom and check out all the stalls. The girls were off on an adventure with SuperMan (story to come) and so we had some good one-on-one time. Something we don't get very frequently and that is very special indeed.
The rest of the day was relaxing and even included a nap and some serious swing-time. They have the greatest swing in their backyard and I love stretching out in the sunshine and watching the clouds go by as I swing.
Awesome weekend – and we're just getting started.
