I somehow managed to shrink every damn picture I took yesterday so that they are not very good quality. I don't know how that happened, but it did. I think I may have forgotten that I shrunk them once yesterday as I normally do, and then shrunk them again today without even looking and hit save before seeing how small they were. Ugh. Anyway, sorry the quality is so poor.
We stopped on the side of the road to take these photos on the way to the Farmer's Market in Colville yesterday. I hope we never stop noticing the beauty of this place. People who have lived here for years and years, or maybe even all their lives, say they don't notice it and are surprised by the wonderment of tourist or people new to the area. Please Lord, don't ever let me get that way!
The Market was small.
Only about 10 tents.
I didn't buy any of this yarn, but I did by something else from these people.
That lady in the red shirt in the tent to the left is Olga.
She had all kinds of yummy-looking food she had made.
We got a container of these chicken sausage dumplings.
They were fantastic! YUM!
This skirt is the only other thing I bought.
Ain't it cool? I love it!
They had two in my size. Wish I had gotten the other one too now.
We got there too late (in the last hour before it closed) so all the good veggies were gone. We're going back on Saturday to see if there are more vendors and will get there earlier so we can get some fresh fruits and veggies.
This is Lake Roosevelt. We stopped so I could wade in the water a while.
The weather was great yesterday. It only got into the low 80s for an hour or so and then dipped back down into the 70s for the remainder of the day. We sat outside in the backyard and enjoyed it with the doggies.
We got the oil changed in the car, did the grocery shopping, looked at the propane stoves and got the skinny on how much that was going to cost us, stopped in at Kettle Falls for gas and some candy and iced tea for the return trip home. I got a Sugar Daddy and a Chic-o-Stick, and Ken got two big rolls of Bottle Caps. (We ate half and saved half for later.) We looked like two children with our hands full of candy and giggling as we left. There's nothing like NOT WORKING to put the child-like joy back in your soul. Of course, Ken is retired, but I've just been lucky the past week and a half and not had any work come in. Everybody I work for is on vacation or busy squeezing out the last drops of summer before school starts. Things will pick up again in the next couple of weeks. No cooking yesterday as we had lots of leftovers to eat.
Oh, I forgot. One more thing...
I ordered this new book from Amazon on a whim a few days ago.
It was waiting on the porch for me when I got home yesterday.
I haven't had a chance to look through it yet.
Love those stockings on the cover!
No more progress on the shawl/scarf I'm crocheting in the last few days. I've been too busy to crochet, and last night I got all involved watching two hour-long shows about Marilyn Monroe and didn't do anything.
Time to go for a bike ride.
