This morning I headed over to the local farmers’ market to get some strawberries. My dad bought rhubarb, so I thought I’d make a pie. (I’ll let know how it goes.) While I was there, I saw some great dogs, including a pair of my favorites, basset hounds named Mabel and Molly. I still smell like them, which is great.

Then, I stopped at some yard sales, looking for cheap dishes to compliment my collection and increase my dinner party capacity. No luck there, but I did get a copy of Ondaatje’s Anil’s Ghost in unabridged cassette, so I can listen to that in the car.

On the way home, I swung into a different branch of our local library, and I was blown away. The space is gorgeous, the collection large, and the staff amazing. I even signed up for the Adult Summer Reading program, which is aptly themed around food. Great stuff.

Finally, I got a message from someone I didn’t expect to hear from for a while, and I’m so excited to be in contact.

A great day so far, and I’m wishing you the same. Off to try this pie.
