One of the weekends I look forward to each year is the weekend our local Farmers’ Market begins for the season. Yes, today is that day. Needless to say, if you live in the area and are headed down to the market, you may just run into me. I will be on the lookout for fresh spring produce and will be trying to create a meal from what I find (yes, I can do it. I will follow the French model.) And maybe if I’m lucky, the peonies will be waiting to be purchased as well.
During this particular weekend, I will be savoring some time at home. There is something special about such weekends. Probably because, as of late, I am usually heading out of town. To sleep in in my own bed with dogs’ wet noses and nudges to wake me up, steaming hot lavender tea and croissants along with the Sunday paper to dive into and to be the master of time, not letting it tell me when or where I have to be, even if it is only for two days, are all reasons why I cherish such weekends at home.
I hope your week has gone well, and you are looking ahead to a wonderful weekend. Whatever it may bring, may it be sweet, kind and memorable.
