"You should get some Gypsy Cold Care tea from Traditional Medicinals, it will really help you cold!" Today was the first day that I felt well enough to get out of my PJs, and make a trip to the health food store in town. I needed tea and bread but I was surprized at what else they had!
I parked over by the fire department. It was so beautiful out that I thought I could handle a 2 block walk.
It's the same fire department that Charlie Villanova is fire captain. I went to high school with Charlie. I was a freshman, he was a senior, and I had such a crush! I saw him in the grocery store a couple of months ago and decided to go over and say hi. I won't be nervous, high school was such a long time ago.
I was so wrong!
After bounding over to Charlie and his crew, in my loud boots, this is how my conversation went:
Hi Charlie, my name is Eva and we went to high school together. Well, kind of, I think you are my cousin Mitzie's age, I don't know, how old are you?
In my mind I kept saying, get it together Eva, he's just a person. But I couldn't. So anyways, I said thank you for doing such a good job with the fire department, smiled, turned and almost ran away!
I just kept thinking, for goodness sake, Eva, you're 54 not 14!
As I ran past the fire department, hoping not to see Charlie, I noticed they had a cool mailbox! After doing a double check to be sure he wasn't around, I snapped a quick photo and then rushed away. Such a high school move!
I was tired by the time I made it to Drivers Market. I just wanted grab my tea and bread and get back to the boat. I was standing at the register, putting my card away, I turned, took two steps and bumped into this barrel display with yarn! Yarn! Drivers Market carries yarn! Beautiful, natural yarn from Full Belly Farm in Capay Valley, CA.
Of course I had to grab a couple of hanks. Graham Driver, one of the stores owners, was standing next to me so I asked when he started carrying yarn. He said Full Belly Farms provides a variety of organic greens, leaks, and potatoes. And it was only a couple of months ago they started carrying their yarn.
I'm not quite sure what I'll do with it, yet, but I'm sure that it will be put to good use, quickly!
