Yesterday was a good day. I ♥ it very much. Let me tell you about it:
I love good deals as much as the next guy. Love farmer’s markets (or the equivalent) just as much as the next guy next to him. And gotta love local fresh organic produce too (as much as the next guy next to the next guy next to him sort of thing).
Well…yesterday was major scorage for us (yes, I like to make up words – sometimes they’re more fitting). We made an impromptu stop at a local u-pick blueberry farm. Acres of blueberries!
With Caleb, I try to be mature about my dislikes of any kind of good eats because I don’t want to impose my opinions on him without giving it a chance and this includes BLOOBS!
See, now you’ve got me saying that word. Ha ha!
Caleb loves his blueberries though and has since his first introduction a few months back. Yay! This actually makes me very happy. And yesterday (and today) he got to eat lots! I had a few (wink).
At the farm, they also have other produce for sale. Kale, onions, cherries, lettuces, corn, and more. Sadly, no one was buying the kale. So I bought two bunches. For $1.50 for a HUGE bunch I couldn’t pass it up. Kales chips will be made today. :)
So here’s what we bought:
Blueberries – two pints for $6
Corn – 6 ears for $2
Kale – 2 bunches for $3
Walla Walla sweet onions – 2 bunches for $3
Yeah! Fresh local and organic produce - cheap too! Like I said, major scorage.
So the day was just beautiful and fun and one to remember.
...I got pulled over. Ugh. And I knew why. No, I wasn’t speeding. I wasn’t on my cell. I even signaled when I should have. Instead, I got pulled over for expired tabs. Lame.
I didn’t get them when I should have because we were so busy with moving and working that it just slipped my mind. Double lame.
What’s funny is as soon as the cop lady pulled me over and before she got to me, I got out my license, insurance card and registration (although, not current of course) so that when she came to my window to tell me the obvious, I was prepared and handed her my info. She didn't have to ask and she was impressed. She’s like, wow! Look at you! Hee hee! I’m such a good girl (wink).
Anyway, a few minutes later she came back and said she’d let me go with a warning. Phew! Thanks lady! Probably helped too that I didn’t argue or make excuses for my oopsie. Seriously, I was so happy and grateful and it added to the already good day.
Now, I know what’s next on my to-do list. Uh, scratch that. Last Saturday of the month at the DMV is crazy town! Yeah, I could purchase them online but last couple of times we paid them in person it was half the price than the notice they mailed. Don’t know what that’s all about but I’m all for half off if I can.
I think this little guy had a good day too!
