Do you remember the song, "Come Saturday Morning"?
On the back country roads, early this morning, 7:30am early,
we passed an eager group of children headed for a morning of
sledding on a nearby hill.
I had to capture these pictures, as it looked to me to be right
out of the Norman Rockwell era.
Down the hill they flew, and then the trek back up the hill. Saturday morning fun at it's finest.
From there, two of our grandchildren, my husband and I headed for one of our favorite
local restaurants for a hearty breakfast. My breakfast choice...apple, walnut
baked oatmeal, with milk. I highly recommend it!
After breakfast, and lots of fun conversations with other friends/patrons, we were on our
way to a thriving farmer's market in a nearby city. Our good friend and her son
took on a new venture. Along with a successful fresh produce stand that the son
owns and operates, he and his mother opened an additional stand, selling all freshly cut and packaged vegetables and fruits, plus delicious yogurts and salads.
The eye candy at this stand was most impressive! The freshness and the vivid colors of the
fruit, was so beautiful!
For me, this was better than any candy store. Every color of the palette, was attractively
Son and mother took a moment to pose for a picture. Truly this family has many
entrepreneurs, and (having seen when they tackle a new enterprise) it is bound to be
successful. Personally, I think the mother looks more like the son's sister, than his
A pretty bouquet of white tulips graced the side counter.
Packages of fresh stir fry vegetables, would certainly make dinner preparations much simpler.
Lush green asparagus, added to the stands color appeal.
Smiles were an attractive feature, at the new stand.
Colorful, fresh garden salads were packaged and ready to eat.
Our granddaughter was thrilled and kept asking if she could eat it as
soon as she got home.
Healthy yogurt parfaits, were my choice, sold with delicious looking granola. Our grandchildren
were intrigued by the personal attention they were given.
Oh, so good! Lunch served in a cup...how convenient.
Their homemade fruit dip, was exceptionally good, and the plate
of fruit and dip did not last long in our household.
The sweetness of the watermelon and cantaloupe, along with the fact that the
sun is out today, almost led one to believe that Spring is actually around the corner.

A perfect snack, or a meaningful gift for anyone.
I liked the concept of it all.
I wish them much success and years of blessing, in this
brand new adventure.
The four of us, were most impressed on our first visit.
Despite the eye candy appeal of the fresh fruits and vegetables, this
little guy was still drawn in to the bins of chocolate candy, at a nearby stand.
He was convinced that we needed to purchase chocolate to make
our market trip complete.
"Come Saturday morning"...here is how we spent ours.
Hope you are having a good one!
