My, my, time flies when you're having fun. I've been work-work-working (had to work Sunday in addition to my normal days), so what did we do on my one day off this weekend? We looked at old stuff (like I don't get enough of that as a museum curator, yet it was totally my idea). The Fredericksburg Big Flea was going on this weekend and we spent a good part of Saturday trolling the aisles for deals and just having fun looking at all the goodies. And I bought nothing except the tickets to get in. I was slightly disappointed with the a)selection - way too much refinished furniture and b)price - I do know what things should go for, and some of these definitely weren't bargains.
Oh, but we ate too. Yes, my life has a theme of eating, working, and looking/taking pictures of nature. Simple life, simple loves. But back to the eating: Wegman's Seafood Bar. Amazing baked spiced tofu with fresh green beans, a big glass of red wine, and we split some pretty delish bread pudding for dessert. Yes, good food at a grocery store. I don't know why I'm so surprised.
This twisty tree I spotted on my work patrol on Sunday and it spoke to me. Pictures of that tree and a few crocuses popping up along the visitor path are all that have littered my camera lately. Oh, and pictures of some desserts that I baked (yes, baked now that I have a functioning oven) for dinner with the beau tonight. But more on that later. If the dessert turned out...
