farmer's market update

well, the farmers market trip was a success.  we purchased some bread, granola and a huge watermelon.  it will take an army to eat that whole watermelon!
gianna was good for the most part.  she is in a very "touchy, feely" stage and wants EVERYTHING!
after the market we headed to the founta
ins down by the river.
that was a blast!  gianna had so much fu
n and finally ran through the water so that her head got wet!  i was so proud of her!
then we headed to Petsmart.  they were having adoption day and of course i fell in love with a dog.
there was something about this dog that i felt so connected with her.  she was a terrier mix, about 1 1/2 years old and she was tan and black.
she was little too, with these little paws and a little tongue that just kissed you all over!  she was definitely a lap dog!  she just wanted to be held in your arms.
she was a bit mangy, but i think that is what drew me to her.
well, unfortunately i was told "no" and she did not come home with me.  i actually shed tears on the way home and felt a heaviness in my heart.
i know the responsibility of another dog is large and there is always the additional cost.  but i think having her with us might have helped me a bit.
maybe lifted a bit of the sadness that has surrounded me again lately.
and i thought that maybe this little dog would grow up with gianna, be her little side kick.
but i suppose i missed the chance on her and hopefully someone else wanted to give her a good home. 
otherwise, maybe we will meet again and then i will know we were meant to be together!

farmers market

good morning!  we are finally going to attempt the Farmer's Market this morning!  Yippee!
Although we have been trying to grow our own garden to harvest our own vegetables, there is something exhilarating about going to the Farmer's Market.
Unfortunately our market here in the south isn't like the markets you would find in California or most other highly populated areas, but it is still fun the same!
i will be sure to check in later to update on our experience there!
