This evening I walked down town - all of about 6 blocks to meet a friend for dinner. Left early so I could stop at the Quilt shop to pick up a piece of material i need for a project. Of course, I found a couple of pieces in the sale basket I just could not resist. One yellow and the other a light green with some yellow highlights. Now what to do with them - perhaps a table runner.
The restaurant where I met Maggie is in the same block as our Farmer's Market. Got there a little early, so shopped a little - found some beets, green and yellow beans, and some apricots. Also, met a couple of friends from church. Then, met Maggie. Had a good dinner of a tamale and fresh salad - very yummy!!. After eating we browsed the Market - Maggie picked up some apricots and some bread and cinnamon rolls. She was ready to go home, so I took my time walking home - talked to a few people along the way who were enjoying the cooler weather. Felt so good to be out - have not gone out for a walk in far too long. And the River Walk Way is just beautiful this time of year. Will take my camera next time and get some new pictures.
