Today I decided to go to a Farmers Market a little way from here. They were pretty expensive there, but I still got some tomatoes, berries, and fruit, plus a loaf of bread. It was the berries that got to me, though. Tomorrow is a friend's anniversary and she once told me that her husband liked blueberries. I don't know how to make rhubarb pie, so I decided to make him a blueberry pie and I got her a big bouquet of carnations. Of course, I have never made a blueberry pie from fresh blueberries and had too many, so I have two pies. But that was fun. I just hope it turns out.
For the carnations I needed some fern to go into the bouquet, so headed to a flower shop nearby, which turned out to be closed down. I ended up at a nursery and got some plants, then found a flower shop they told me about. I think that it turned out pretty well. And, there were enough carnations left to have a small bouquet in my living room, too.
