the makings of a perfect evening:

a walk in the park, holding j(wh)’s hand, contemplating waterfowl, and luxuriating in the beauty of a spring evening.

random errand running which results in buying cheap gas (relatively speaking, of course) and superyummy soft peanutbutter cookies from costco, of which i promptly ate two. because i get cranky when i’m hungry.

wandering through the fullerton market, perusing vendor stalls, inspecting produce and fresh flowers, conversing with strangers, and laughing at little dogs in sweaters.

chatting with a produce vendor about dancing.

eating delicious roasted sweet white corn slathered in butter and sprinkled with garlic pepper salt.

sampling garlic basil hummus and whole wheat pita bread.

discovering vegetable ivory jewelry, made from the tagua nut grown on palms in the south american rainforest. so beautiful. i indulged and bought myself a funky yellow pendant.

dancing to the music of the blues band playing live.

going back past the dancing vendor’s produce stand to buy a bag of strawberries and another of snow peas, which he sold us for $1 each since he was packing up for the night.

feasting on hummus, pita, snow peas, and strawberries while reading michael pollan’s the botany of desire (a must read; so fascinating) out loud.

sharing it all with j(wh).

    Sounds fun! I really want the strawberries! I bought them at the store today but they just aren’t the same when they are shipped from CA to NY! Still better than what we have growing here…wait, that would be nothing! At least we enjoyed hte sixty degree weather today and have gone outside for almost five days straight!!

    I do look forward to strawberry picking…they are just pretty tiny berries compared to CA. At least they taste good! We might try strawberries this year too!
