memorial day weekend
cook-outs, yard sales, outdoor fun
Went to the farmers' market and came home with sweet italian lamb sausage and lamb chorizo, spinach ricotta ravioli, and cranberry raisin walnut bread, all made locally here in the beautiful Hudson Valley... yum...so exciting
I'm stoked and hopeful that the peanuts will enjoy the fare, and I will hold my head high and
not be ashamed/guilty/frustrated
Mia spies a yard sale a few houses down.
She and Ty go to scope out the goods.
it's just junk says Jack can i go to ethan's house?? see ya do you remember the summer before 7th grade?
Mia comes back mommy, can i have 3 dollars?
...and ty wants his allowance.
I dispense 3 dollars each
They proudly return with these lovely acquisitions
pleasemommyplease can i go back?
can i have a 4dollar bill or a 5dollar bill?
honey, that's alot of money to spend on someone else's junk
...unless i want food
so, i don't know
they struck some kind of barter/deal thing with the yard sale lady
every so often i noticed them carrying stuff out of our house, and coming back with armloads of different stuff
well, it's not new junk
it's not new junk from walmart
won't be used by us
I'm stimulating the local economy
hope that yard sale lady doesn't have anything valuable of mine
Skip the fancy sausage dinner maybe tomorrow
Jack's at the drive-in with his friends
yeah, drive-in, pretty cool
Mia & Ty want to try the new hot dog place on Main St.
the buzz was specialty gourmet dogs
i'm thinking not unlike sweet italian lamb sausage
yeah, not so much
sabrette's , greasy fries, cheeseburgers
tasted good, as a hot dog should
please pass the pepcid
