What do you do on a Saturday in a lazy Southern small town? My day began with a 5:30 AM run with the temperature 78 degrees and the humidity at 110%-REALLY! The die hard faithfuls were there to meet me and off we went in the early twilight. The first 4 miles + were not much fun and then we ran by a large garage sale. NOW THIS IS MORE LIKE IT! We stopped and shopped and browsed for 10-15 minutes. YES INDEED THIS IS MY IDEA OF RUNNING! I found a treasure and had them stick it back for my later pick up and off we went again.
Next stop at mile 5+ was for much needed water! We then started back toward our starting point and found "The Farmer's Market". It still 6:30, but we stopped again and perused the goodies! The "GENERAL IN CHARGE" quickly told us there would be no sales until 7:30. That did not stop us from "Window or Tent Shopping".
After the agony of a 7+ mile run was over, I headed back to the garage sale and Farmer's Market. The above picture is just a couple of the tents that were pitched with their delectable goods.
If you could read the sign on the tent to the left, you would see Yak's Peach & Vegetables. A good old Southern name-YAK. What Mother would think Yak was a cute name that she would love to see her beloved baby called by all her life?
I not only bought a big sack of home grown, vine picked veggies, but also the above sack of herbs. The herbs were large enough that I can begin to use the leaves immediately and I will transplant them early tomorrow in a large pot. We will enjoy "Fresh Herbs" the rest of the summer and fall when cooking. YUMMY!
I came home to a little yard work, a visit with "The In-Laws", a lunch of left overs and pretty soon a well deserved hour nap. After all I had been up since 4:45 AM.
A quiet evening with my favorite boy friend and that should wind up another Saturday in Ruston!
