It’s been awhile since I’ve walked through the Byward Market, when I worked downtown it was an everyday occurrence. I have never however been immune to it’s beauty, the markets, farmer’s stalls and all the people, there is a connectedness about it.
When I get tired of shopping at grocery chains and want to indulge myself a bit, thats where I head, pasta and olive oil at La Bottega, fresh flowers and a latte at the French bakery. Just wandering about makes me happy.
I walked to the Irish Village this afternoon to meet the kid and her boyfriend for beers, sitting on a patio was the perfect start to three weeks holidays. Writing, blogging, cooking, walking the dogs, reading and a week of baseball in Cooperstown. Happy summer!
