Somethings make since.

Wait, let me start over…


But today, my mind is everywhere, so this post will not be one of those things. Hey, I gave you fair warning yesterday.

I went to the Nashville farmers market with the man-friend last weekend…

Farmers Market Haul

I got a little carried away.

WatermelonAnd I carried the bought a watermelon. 😉

Oh and that was the LAST thing to ever touch my kitchen table. Two hours after I posted it on Craig’s List last Friday, I had a buyer and they picked it up on Sunday! Yay me!

I took this pic at the park the other day on one of my walks.

Love the sky!

My parents got a kitten.


And apparently, she’s narcoleptic.

KittenBut my mom calls her Zoe. 😉

I made a snack yesterday with my last buttered popcorn rice cake…
