Trying New Things

Yesterday, Joe got out of the house by 7:30am.  This is very early for me.  I’m pretty spoiled because Joe is in graduate school and has a flexible schedule, so he usually gets in to work by 9 or 9:30 and tries to be there about 8 or 9 hours.

I love getting my staple food items from the Farmer’s market.  Fresh, healthy, natural.
