+Breakfast with my mom at Bacon’s with a Groupon coupon. Tried a salmon eggs benedict—delish! I love me some hollandaise!
+A trip to the Parker County/Weatherford Farmers Market despite cooler weather and clouds. Bought some veggies for dinner and browsed at the plant selection. Can’t wait to go back when Parker County peaches come in season!
+Dropped by Foch Street in west Ft. Worth, the ‘new’ upgraded area around W. 7th to stop by The Greener Good. Found them at Prairie Fest the other day and wanted to see their location. I had a 15% coupon from the fest and bought some bamboo ‘silver’ware to use in the hotel while we are working. And to take to restaurants that have disposable cutlery.
+In the same shopping strip found Bess and Evie’s a vintage resale shop. Lots of kitchy items but some nice things as well. I found a beautiful crochet top that was obviously made by someone as a hobby. I almost bought it, only $22, but it has a small hole in the underarm I could’ve easily sewn up and then I talked myself out of it because I felt it was a smidge snug in the belly. Probably my imagination but I decided to pass. Hope I don’t regret it. I’m on a mission to buy nicer tops that don’t involve looking like some form of a comfy t-shirt. I’m such a t-shirt/jersey shirt person!
+And of course next door was JRae’s, a cupcake/cookie shop. Mom got a coconut cupcake while I opted for chocolate with vanilla icing. A little too much sugar but it was gooooood!
+Must go back to this area some time soon. Spend a whole afternoon and then evening there for dinner. Found a winery on that street as well, so top the evening off with wine. I think I found an excellent summer outing.
+For the first time in my life, despite having lived in the Ft. Worth suburbs for a lot of my life, I saw the TCU campus (Texas Christian University for you out of towners). I never went further than Log Cabin Village or the FW Zoo; little did I know a mile or so down was TCU and college galore. Pretty looking campus, too.
+Found Elizabeth Anna’s Old World Garden via Groupon as well. Located west of TCU they are an eclectic garden center. Mom found a few plants for the yard and I could’ve easily bought a lot of plants if I had a yard!
+Coffee, wine, fresh catfish from Chris, homemade bread, sewing, and relaxing topped the evening off.
A good day. How about you?
