Outdoor Girl

Blanche is not very adventuresome.  She definitely prefers to lounge around indoors with the air conditioner cranking and her favorite tv shows on. She does at time like to sit in a little patch of sun by one of our windows and one the rare occasion she likes to chill out in the backyard for about 30 minutes or so.  At least once a week we coax her out to the front or side yards and hope that she will snuffle around for a bit.  She normally does even though she is curious as to why we are making her do it!

I guess I feel that one and all should get to outside and enjoy the sun and sky for a little bit of each day.  She is slowly learning to appreciate the outside.  She will never want to lounge outside all day but she at times waddles over to the door when I am about to leave and follows me for a few steps.  After sniffing around and deciding everything is ok, she is ready to go back inside and grab her remote!

I will say that she shares my choice in favorite places to sit at my house and she seems to love the porch as much as I do.!

"Can I go in now"???

Summer Market Season

It is July already. Can't believe it. I can believe the heat and you know how I feel about my treats not so much.  I don't do so many outdoor (uncovered) markets during the summer months.  I prefer to kick back under some ceiling fans. There have been a couple of new ones this year in Athens and I am happy to say I got to participate in them.  

The Sunday Center Market at the Classic Center in Athens, GA is fantastic. Huge covered space, ceiling fans, food trucks and the easiest load in ever.  For all of you non-vendor people out there, that makes a huge difference in your day.  

The Indie South Pop Up market was yesterday and it was held in a cool converted warehouse in Athens. Easy load-in, even had beverages for vendors...and I am talking Mimosas!  That's me above with two of my friends that have been faithful customers for years.  We love you Randy and Veronica!

So if you have a weekend day to kill this summer, take a look around your community and check out a market.  Some are hardcore Farmers Markets with edibles from local farms. Some are predominately crafts and my favorite markets are the ones that welcome just about everything...and food trucks...and sweet concoctions vendors.....and Mimosa's!

July in New Mexico

Even a photo from a moving car makes the land and sky look beautiful!


My new buddy Atticus trying to join me in my loft!

I need this roller for my dough!

Morning walk at Betsy's house.

4th of July in Los Alamos, NM

Thought this was appropriate after a trip to Atomic City!

Riding the waves on the Rio Grande.  Can't wait for the 2-day trip!

Home again

Well the fun is over for now. New Mexico 2015 was a joy!  As always a lovely visit with one of my besties.  I am so lucky she lives in such a wonderful land!  Got some fun pics to show...I must say the box really hit rock bottom, might be time for a replacement even though that will be so sad.
