stimulating the local economy

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
it's reused
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


  1. i'll take the lamb chorizo, the cranberry walnut bread, and the black towels with the LEOPARD PRINT BORDER...?!!!

    they're soooo mia....

  2. Ty chose those. Mia was the velvet pillow with gold lame bow. The towels are now hanging hotel room style in our upstairs bathroom. They're kwazy


so... wadaya think?

Your fairy is called Columbine Icedancer
She is a bone chilling bringer of justice for the vulnerable.
She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.
She is only seen when the bees swarm and the crickets chirrup.
She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers. She has icy blue butterfly wings.
