Another hot and humid Monday with more over 100-degree heat. Today’s cuppa is brought to us by Octavia Teas. It is an Earl Grey Lavender. On this one, I’m going to have to say I didn’t care for it. It was strong and I didn’t detect the lavender. Not worth the caffeine. But I’m sure someone else will love it. What did I love?
This Nitro Cold Brew with Almond Milk from Starbucks! Smooth as my Uncle Junior. I grabbed it on the way to the Farmer’s Market at OSU. What did I find there?
There was live music, lots of people grabbing those first peaches and tomatoes. We bought some of everything! Including a whole peach pie. We got a ton of pickling cucumbers and okra and did this!
Made Dill Pickles and Pickled Okra! Turns out I am that kind of person! These weekends off are turning us into different people. I mean you have to get up early for this stuff! But I was so inspired by the beautiful produce I had to do something.
Afterwards, we hit up the Antique Fair. And what did we see? Lots of things I wanted!
A rare 1800’s Tea Bin. It is large! And the inside smells like tea. Cute little tea set for the grands. A lovely rose tablecloth that went beautifully with the vase of roses the same color from the day before!
My momma and my sister are fluent in shorthand. A skill I never once thought of attaining. It looked a lot like when I was learning Farsi. And the best, a 1939 edition of Gone With The Wind. Enough to make a Georgia girl swoon!
All that shopping and adventuring made us hungry so we made a Watermelon Mint and Feta Salad with some Harney and Sons Blueberry Green Tea!
Then we got Wedding Mail! One of the shirts I ordered for the #BrideTribe. Even little Charli got one. The mugs are for our morning coffee on the big day!
And it looks like OU Boy has turned into a butterfly! He’s lost a lot of weight and is sticking to his healthy eating habits. Now he loves shopping.
We also finished watching Dead Like Me on Prime. I can’t believe I never saw that! Saw Jim Gaffigan and hung at the pool. I talked to my sister a lot trying to co-ordinate winter vacations in Curacao.
Now it’s Monday and back to work, we go. Back to school, we go. This weekend stuff I could get used to!
Enjoy and what did you do this weekend?
