WEEKEND SHENANIGANS! AND PIE!

earlgreylavender

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?

    I’m usually found at our local farmer’s market on Saturday mornings…our weekend haul sounds like yours, we came home with two large sunny peaches, a whole array of colourful heirloom tomatoes and plums, two small bouquets of green onions and radishes, tender spinach greens, etc. It’s getting late in the season but we’re still able to bring home lots of goodies! I would’ve come home with the same things from that gorgeous Antique Fair…
