I know I said I’d be trying to take photos for the Photo A Day Challenge on the actual day of the prompt. I did try, but today, I didn’t find anything that really worked for the prompt “Gold”. So I used this picture that I took at the Museum of Anthropology a few weeks ago.
Breakfast – Toasted Little Big Bread with almond butter and a peach
Lunch – pita, carrots and spinach/kale dip
Dinner – grilled chicken and peppers on ciabatta (with pesto and mayonnaise) and steamed nugget potatoes
Extras – cherries (MANY cherries), blueberries (quite a few of those too) and white wine
Exercise – Nada. :)
Before I was even out of my pajamas this morning, I pitted and froze two bags of cherries. (the local fruit seems very good this year) For the record, my cherry pitter is one of my favorite kitchen gadgets. Is that weird? Yeah..it is.
This morning, I went out to some farms to get some berries to make some jam. On the way, I saw this van. Cracked me up….rude, but struck me funny.
I got 10 lbs of blueberries (not pictured), black currents, carrots, cherries, nugget potatoes, home made sauerkraut and eggs that were collected yesterday. I love this season.
One of the farms I went to is a working commercial farm, and not only grows and sells produce, but have goats (they make/ sell cheese), chickens, roosters and ducks (I ALMOST tried duck eggs. Have any of you had duck eggs?), horses and donkeys for kids to look at, and rabbits running free.
I was pretty smitten with the roosters, chickens and ducks. The roosters and chickens followed me around, which was very cute……
I want a chicken.
Note to self: You live in an apartment….rethink the chicken idea! :) And even though goats are really cute, and you want one…rethink that too.
Someone left their jeans on some farm equipment. What IS growing on that farm!? HA!!
No clothes were discarded on these wheels….
A horse with six legs???
And a donkey with big ears. Hee haw!
Six ducklings and mom….
I liked this sign in the garden area.
As the title says, most of today’s random hearts are from the farm. This is a heart faced chicken…
“Nacho” the donkey has a heart around his shoulder, and a black “heart” on his leg. Double heart.
And this goat wears his heart on his back. Awww…
The last heart of the day was in the rear window of a car. (I should point out that my car was stopped when both of the vans in today’s post passed by and I took the shots.)
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!!!
