Holland Farmers Market

Well, Mr. Babs was gone on the bike this weekend.  Thus, I had lots of free time to do whatever I wanted.  One of my favorite things to do is go to the Holland Farmers Market.  There is such energy there.  The vendors all have their goods arranged neat and tidy.  The nurseries have cool, unusual plants and grasses and lots of cool flowers.  In the fall, my favorite lady is there ......the pumpkin lady.  Of course, it took me about 1/2 hour to decide exactly what I wanted to take home with me.

See why it is so hard.  All sorts of options.  I only picked up a few for the fireplace mantle and a basketful of little white pumpkins - I added some bittersweet vine from the backyard - it looks really cute.

The rest of the weekend was pretty much home with the garage door closed - it was so windy out.  Mr. Babs went to the UP on the bike.  It was so windy they had to be escorted over Mackinac Bridge - he said it was not pleasant - they could only go single file - 20 mph and they were still blowing and weaving like crazy.  He said I would not have like it if I was on the back of the bike.  Right, dah!

I crafted this weekend a lot - made another cute bag.

Getting geared up a trip to Chicagoland.  I"ll be leaving with my sister Maggie on Wednesday for a few days.  Staying with my niece - doing some shopping, going to Zacataco's (yum, yum - their guac is the bomb) and just hanging out -pedi/mani with the polish girls too!

Have a good week.  We're snuggled in - it was only 43 degrees this a.m.!!!! Brrrr.  Yes, our furnace is on.
