Weekly Recap


1.  After numerous attempts, I finally made a batch of Andrea's famous salsa that the mister deemed perfect.  Perfect meaning "it tastes like Andrea made it".  Yesssssss!  This has been a long time goal.  And it may only happen once, so I'm relishing this batch.  A batch so good it deserves to be stored in vintage Pyrex........


 
2.   I hit up the local Farmers' Market to buy a bouquet.  They have the best.  But they were out, so I just enjoyed checking out all the fresh, locally grown produce. 



3.  After bringing the garage back to its intended purpose (storing vehicles - not stuff for my booth) we decided we'd earned a break......



4.  Speaking of the booth, both times I went to check it this week, it had been ravaged!  Which meant I needed to restock.  Painted frames are hot sellers.  So a spray painting frenzy ensued.......



5.   We have a tradition among our group of friends.  Sneaking onto an unsuspecting friend's porch.  And photographing ourselves in front of their door.  Then posting it on as many social media sites as possible...... 



It's fun to see how long it takes the victim to realize it.  For porch lights to flicker on.  Or for a concerned neighbor to question what the heck you're doing.

Luckily, Schlager convinced the neighbor that we were not casing the place.

Next time, we'll make sure it's daylight.
