quiet night

john’s out of town this weekend, and it’s crazy how big and lonely this little apartment feels in his absence. i’ll probably end up sleeping on the couch, because it’s the only cozy place i can find, swaddled in quilts and blankets, falling asleep with NPR on low.

i’ve had a very long, full day; a dash to the farmer’s market before work – the shortest time i’ve ever spent at the market! and yet i still got to scritch-scratch a cute border collie (named Jan) behind the ears, and had time to talk about a man’s “hoop house” while i bought the last of the season’s tomatoes from him. after only ten minutes, my bags were loaded down with a pink banana squash, a butternut squash, collard greens, 2 kinds of onions, cabbages, the aforementioned tomatoes, and a bunch of sage. i’m really sad about the last farmer’s market day of the season being 1 week from today – i am so going to miss it.

i worked a very long shift today, ran some errands, and am finally, finally home. chili is warming on the stove, i have a silly, girly movie to keep me company, a bag of apples just waiting to be made into apple crisp (can you believe john had never had it before i made it last week?!), and a bunch of quilts to keep me warm.

i hope you have moments of peace in your weekend.

    Aww… it sounds like fall has arrived. Wish I could come keep you company. I imagine I’d be the same way if James was gone all weekend. Here’s an idea! You should move to southern CA where the Farmer’s Market is open year round. :) Oh, and don’t tell anyone but James and I watched that movie together. On the cruise. Yes, on our honeymoon. And it might have even been his idea. ;)

    Fall hasn’t only arrived, but i think it’s on the way out. it’s been unseasonably cold lately, windy and rainy and terribly chilly all day. i wish you could’ve kept me company, too – and i would’ve shared my apple crisp with you!

    year-round farmer’s markets sound amazing!

    JAMES! haha, that’s hilarious.
