Memorial Day Weekend...

The three day weekend dawned with beautiful weather and lots of plans. On Saturday morning we went into Collingswood, where there was an amazing street fair with loads of vendors. It was a beautiful day to walk around and look at their wares. Jewelry, soaps, stained glass...you name it, it was there!


We wandered down one of the side alleyways, just so I could show the boss the front of this building. The entire thing is a mosaic, pieced together with bits of broken china and mirrors...it is just breathtaking. Click to embiggen so you can see the details...especially the china plates that are used to edge the flower beds!

We had lunch reservations at the Tortilla Press. They have large windows that open to the street and they were flung wide open so we could watch the crowds as they passed.

The food was fabulous...definitely worth a stop if you're ever in the area...
I had a fresh asparagus and red pepper salad (the veggies were all purchased from the farm market set up down the street!) that I...well, enjoyed thoroughly! :o)
On Sunday morning, I woke up at 5am, after not sleeping very well because my back hurt. I got up at 5:20 and at 8am headed out to work in the yard until noon. By noon I wasn't feeling well, but figured a shower would make me feel better. Not. By Sunday afternoon, my throat hurt, my whole body ached and my back was killing me. You know how first graders love to share things? Well, they shared the strep infection that's been in the classroom with me! In spite of the beautiful weekend, I spent the rest of it indoors, on the sofa, quite miserable. The doctor called in some antibiotics for me and I should be good as new by tomorrow. Thank heavens there was a Deadliest Catch marathon on Discovery Channel to keep me entertained when I was awake...I love that show! I didn't accomplish anything on my list this weekend, except for what I did in the garden. I'm missing my quilting time...definitely going through withdrawal! Maybe this week...
