Weekend Outing

by Christina

Did you all have a good weekend? We had a good Saturday… Sunday was a different matter (anyone else get deluged by those heavy thunderstorms?) … but Saturday was full of adventure.

The day started with a full B&B breakfast – fruit, toast, scrambled eggs, bacon and pots of tea. Scrumptious.

With our tummies full, my mom, John and I headed out for our adventure. (JK hit the books. He’s working on his thesis now.)

Our first and main stop was the Indy Winter Farmer’s Market in the newly renovated Maxwell building in downtown Indy. It was a¬†spectacular¬†event, as usual. The place was bustling with activity and filled to the bring with greens, herbs, baked goods & arts and crafts.

I was absolutely delighted by BeeFree’s gluten free baked goods. Their cookies were SOOOO good and their frozen pizza dough is divine (and only $4 – a price that fits my budget).

This lovely lady is always at the Zionsville summer Farmer’s Market and she is one of my favorite vendors. I always seek her out to find what is fresh from her garden that week. Well, I was delighted to find that she is an artistic crafter too! Just look at the art she does with the feathers her chickens drop on her farm! I didn’t get enough pictures! I purchased one of her feather headbands and am dying to go back and get a pair of her earrings too!

Our last stop was at Teas Me, 22nd and Delaware. Lovely tea shop with any sort of green, black, white or Rooibus tea you could want or imagine. I purchased some Black Marsala Chai. My mom got some Rooibus Orange.

My mom and I had to practically sing and dance to keep John awake during the short car ride home. He was so tired and a little delirious with sleep. I managed to pull into the garage and whisk him up to his bed before he fell into a deep sleep. I’ve tried leaving him in the car to nap, but it never seems to go very well and John wakes up terrified. So… I do my singing and dancing routine in the car to keep him awake until we get home! =)

With John tucked into bed, my mom and I sat down to munch our GF cookie and sip our new tea.

Fantastic outing!

What did you do this weekend?
