It's almost 45 deg F outside today. Our walking group met at Lake Padden for a couple of trips around the lake. There was a chance of rain, but we didn't see any, and after the exceptionally cold weather we've been having, it felt downright balmy in comparison. We are not likely to see the sun today, even though it looks like those clouds might be going away. Nope.
Ladies after a nice walk
After the walk, I snapped this picture with my cellphone just as I was leaving to head out to the Farmers' Market, which is still going on in our part of the country. Next weekend, the 21st, is its last day until next April, but mostly the things for sale at this time of year are not fresh veggies, but gifts for presents.
Beautiful batik and the artist, Margot
I love these wonderful designs that Margot makes, and I'm never without some of her handiwork, such as a hanky in my pocket and almost always a silk scarf around my neck during the winter. Check out her Etsy shop for more beautiful things she creates.
Creative shell animals
On the way out of the market, I ran into this guy who makes these great pins for sale. He creates them and gives the proceeds to the charity of your choice. He has already given $1500 to the Food Bank this year, and the $5 I gave him for a little turtle pin was my contribution. Plus I've got a whimsical little turtle to wear. I took one of those to the left of his hat. But I especially like the raptors on his head! Now I'm settled inside for the rest of the day, determined to spend enough time with my new Kindle to figure out how to use it properly.
