Some Farmers’ Market Fun After An Eventful Week

It’s been another busy week. And there was “good busy” and “not-so-good busy.” The not so good part was that we had to take the the toddler to the E.R., and he had to stay in the hospital overnight. Luckily, he is fine, but the incident reminded me, once again, that life is unpredictable and that we really need to enjoy every day and make the most of the amazing gift life is.

Every quarter, I end my last class with a short video of Dr. Randy Pausch. This quarter, I showed it to my 7:30 a.m. class right after staying up all night in the hospital. The end of the video always brings tears to my eyes, but this time I was sobbing… Several students told me after class how much they loved the message of the video.

It was nice to bring “normalcy” back into our lives by going to the Farmers’ Market this morning.

We bought the “usual veggies” (tomatoes, radishes, lettuce, cucumbers, green beans, and squash), raw cheese, and black bread. The toddler sampled more than his fair share of fruits, and we got some crepes and a spring roll for lunch. Well, technically, I got the spring roll, and hubby got the crepes. But I reminded him to be nice and share… :-)
