Spring has finally arrived where I live. Today was sunny and the temperature was in the low 60’s. I know it is time to get outside and start some yard work. There is lots to do and time quickly slips away.

However, instead of taking advantage of the great weather, I went to the market. For years we have been going to a country market an hour from our house.

It’s what I would call a traditional farmers market. Local meat, fruits and vegetables along with an assortment of vendors selling every conceivable ware.

I love the market. The sights, the sounds, the smells. It’s an atmosphere that lightens my heart and brings a smile to my face. We try to go a few times a year and never seem to tire. We always come away with something (usually food).

So while I should have been working outside today, I am really glad we went to the market.
