I'm extremely embarrassed, I did not realize how long it has been since I have updated this area!!  Forgive me, my Care2 friends, I promise to do better!!! *blush*

I usually work Saturdays but took a personal day today, I just had to, and I sOOOoooo wish I could take off from work EVERY Saturday! A wonderful, relaxing, colorful start to the day was made by, first, going to the Harbor Market, down at the,... well, harbor in Kenosha, WI, where I was born and raised. I discovered an incredible food stand at the market called "Olano's Empanadas" - my new favorite place! I got a sweet potato empanada with all sorts of wonderful taste sensations within its flaky crust. While at the market I met up with my lovely, dear friend Kristin and we treated ourselves to coffee and a roll at Linnea's Cafe, next to the Rhode Theater(at least, that's what I still call it), it was great catching up with Kristin. I then noodled on over to Fiddlehead Yarns on 26th Avenue & 75th Street. All Hail Fiddlehead!! I had not been there for such a long, long time, it's like standing in a bakery, but with the aroma of yarn all around me, ...ahhhhh. This was followed by a visit to Pick n Save Market on I-50 where I got some very good, healthy bargains and a 6-Pack of Smithwicks, which they NEVER carried in the past. This nectar of the British Goddesses and Gods will accompany my savory dinner this evening. All Hail Savoryness!!
I hope every one of you are having a great weekend!

Peace & Unrest, Carol
