My posts last week were all about the week before and our time at the Oregon Coast. So now at the end of this week I am posting about what was going on while I was posting those. Maybe eventually I'll catch up.
It was pleasantly warm and there were lunches outside.I picked new flowers for the house.
We finally got our first tomatoes, and I featured some in a Caprese salad that was part of our charcuterie board dinner one night. Also featured, sea salt, fig/ginger jam from the Blue Heron, hard cheese from the Nestucca Creamery, goat cheese and other fixings from Safeway, and fresh basil from our garden.
On Friday I finally got an appointment with my Physical Therapist. Erica corrected some mistakes I was making, added and subtracted some exercises, and prescribed a stationary bike workout five days a week instead of going for walks. With so many "multifactorial" issues, it's difficult to know what and how much to prescribe. I started on the new routine this morning.
Saturday I did do some walking. We went to the Puyallup Farmer's Market. We hadn't been all summer and it's our favorite market.
Immigrant farmers grow lots of flowers in our valleys here and our markets are brimming with beautiful bouquets to purchaseThe park is well adorned also.
There are lots of different craft items.
The market was very busy, with lots of people enjoying the food for sale as well.
Flowers and more flowers, and it you want a special arrangement, they will make it for you.
There was produce, of course.
Lots of goodies that we resisted.
Locally grown berries.
And all kinds of fruits and vegetables.
We came away with corn on the cob, baby cucumbers, and beets and beet greens. With what we have in our small garden, we will be eating lots of vegetables this week.
