Farmers market

I went to the Farmers market and got 2 kinds of lettuce, lemons, organic strawberries, radishes, and leeks. $20. Kinda pricey but I wanted nice fresh lettuce.  Oh and some watercress which I’ll add to the salads. I’m putting my produce in the linen bags I made recently and still want to make a few more.

Since I bought my new Brother sewing machine which is a basic model but has what I need, I made 2 linen bags, 4 linen napkins, and a linen chef’s apron.  i love working with linen it’s a great fabric. I used up the 2 yards I ordered so I’m about to order and 4 yards. Some will be for new curtains in the tent trailer and then ?? It’s been fun. I use to sew a lot back in the’old hippie’days.  Yes, some of our clothes. I wouldn’t do that now since I have a minimalist wardrobe but things like bags, napkins, curtains etc are fun and quick.

After the farmers market, I went to the all Friends of Library meeting as we were discussing strategies for approaching the board of supervisors.  There is the possibility of 2 more libraries closing including Applegate( the one I worked at). So, it’ll be interesting to see where it all goes. If there is such a budget shortfall, it’s not a good thing for our small libraries that serve small populated areas.

My son and B went on down to San Francisco to the orientation at SFSU. I think it’s a good fit for my son and he will be going in as a senior. He will need student loans as we don’t have the resources to help him except for incidentals.

Tonight I’m not sure what’s on the menu. I’m feeling kinda blah so my it’ll be YOYO.

Tomorrow we’re going to haul the oak table to the corner and put for free on it as the people never got back to me which really irritated me but oh well, I want it gone.  If it’s not gone by 6 pm we’ll go back and haul it back up and drop off at Salvation army.

It’s supposed to be sunny tomorrow so that will be a nice change again from all the rain.
