Farmer's Market Finds & Weekend Plans

Strange morning at the Farmer's Market today.  Many of the regular vendors seemed to be missing and there were a LOT of empty spots.  Papa thinks maybe there is some festival going on in Connecticut today...Who knows?

Here's what we were able to purchase....

Dairy Vendor: $12
1 bottle of whole milk
1 bottle of heavy cream
1 pint lemon yogurt
1 pint blueberry yogurt

Yale Vendor:  $3
1 small bag of spicy salad mix

Knife Sharpening:  $15
We have desperately need our two chef knives sharpened!  While this may seem expensive, it is far more frugal than purchasing new knives!  Plus, I am kind of attached to these two.  LOL

Bakery Vendor:  $18.50
We haven't visited this stand in awhile so I gave into temptation.  =)
1 mini apple pie
2 large monkey bread muffins
1 round of onion focaccia

Organic Plant Vendor:  $15
2 organic raspberry bushes
(I'm really excited about getting these babies planted!  The guy said we will get some berries this year but, obviously, won't get a full crop until next.)

They are predicting overcast skies and rain for this weekend!  So, G2's trampoline won't be assembled until next week now.  (We take it down every winter and it really seems to have been helping it stay in good condition.)

Papa is going to be relaxing from his first week back at work...Only thing he has to do is mow the lawn.  The fertilizer he dropped last week has been helping almost too much!  Haha

My BFF and I are heading down to New Haven tonight to (belatedly) celebrate her birthday from a few weeks ago.  We are going to an Indian restaurant (my treat) and then to the Yale Campus Barnes and Noble bookstore.  This seems to now be "our thing" for birthday celebrations since this is the third time we have done the same exact thing! 

Other than that, it will be just be a weekend of the usual...

Visiting MIL in the hospital - she will probably be there for another two plus weeks
Driving G2 to her boyfriend's house
Hopefully some downtime catching up on DVR'd shows

How about you?  Any good plans for the weekend?

 Happy Saturday!
