Farmer's Market and Mom

Mom is in Los Angeles visiting from Seattle.  Yea! Mom!.  Her 89th birthday is on Tuesday so we will find some place fabulous to go for dinner and celebrate.

We headed out this morning for the Farmer's Market in Mar Vista and picked up some outstanding Heirloom Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Avocados, Hard Sour Dough Bread.  Yummy my favorite Tomato Sandwich for dinner.

So here we are.  Mom is the one on the right

We ended our experience with ice cold coconut water, mmmm how refreshing on a hot summer day at the market.  The coconut itself was so heavy I didn't know if mom was going to be able to carry it.  But she is a strong woman.   Can you believe, by looking at her, that she will is 89 years old?????  I love her..

I love going to the market on Sunday morning.  I stay strictly to the Organic Veggies just after I buy a pastry full of sugar and usually chocolate and do a taste off from all the vendors walking around with non-organic slices of nectarines, peaches, cheese, bread with pesto on.  I'm very strict about what goes in my mouth at the Farmer's Market NOT!!!  I cheat on myself on Sunday.

The rest of the week, I'm a good girl shopping and buying at Whole Foods.  Have I ever told you that I am a Certified Nutritional Consultant through the Global Institute of Alternative Medicine?  Just another not well known factoid about me that you probably will never need to tap into.  However, from time to time, I will mention some stored knowledge I have learned about Living Well and Feeling Better.

Well, just offering a bit of fun til I'm back at the torch or jewelry bench tomorrow.  Wonder how much work I'll actually get done while mom is here.  We'll see.  I'm certainly not going to worry about it.  She is my number one priority.

Love you
Later then,
