Another Week

I had a lovely weekend.  On Saturday we went to Rehoboth beach in Delaware.  It is a charming place that still has an old time essence about it.  We got there in the afternoon and were able to sit in a lifeguard chair and watch the boardwalk under the stars.  If you want a formula for romantic/magical evening.  It is as follows: beach + clear night sky + slight cool summer breeze + the sound of lapping waves + some random person playing the guitar + charming boardwalk for gazing + your honey.  It really was a perfect evening.  We sat, listened, watched, and talked.  I recommend all couples give this a try.  After that perfect evening, we woke up early to watch the sun rise.  Another magical experience, no matter where you watch the sun rise, it is breathtaking every time.  It was cloudy, so the effect was different, but beautiful still.  There is something about summer that makes a trip to  the beach seem necessary.

Sunday we went to a Celtic festival at the Ren Faire grounds in Lancaster, PA.  As usual, we had a great time.  We listened to talented bands, ate great Celtic food (Hagis, deep fried eggs), and enjoyed looking at the wares of the craftsman who have booths at the Faire.  One thing I love about the Ren Faire is all the artisans who come and display their work.  To me this is the optimal way for goods and services to be made and purchased.  The quality of items made by craftsman don't compare to items made in China for mass market at big box stores.   I miss this kind of craftsmanship.  One positive  thing is that the internet has made it easier for artisans to sell their wares to a wider audience.  I suppose all things are cyclical. At some point we will return to a demand for quality over the lowest price.  Well, that's my hope anyway.

I also am including some pictures of the CSA I go to.  Just so all of you know what I go on about constantly.  The food is simply amazing! :) I am going to start theme week next week.  I was not prepared for it this week.  It doesn't look like I got the job at the place I interviewed at last week, despite the positive feedback.  It wasn't meant to be it appears.  I have another interview this Thursday, hopefully that one will work out.  If not, it is not the end of the world.  I really believe when it comes to things like this, things work out if they are meant to be.  Well, enough of my rambling.  I hope you enjoy the pictures below.

  1. Gorgeous sunset photos!! And I especially love the red dress: what a great thrift find!! I was reading your About Me and I love period British dramas, too! Especially those based on classic novels. :)

  2. Thank you :). I too love this dress. This is one of my favorite shades. I am glad I am not the only one who loves British Dramas. The ones based on the novels are the best.

  3. Lovely pictures!!! And love your lemon dress by the beach! Celtic celebrations seem fun!

    And I know what you meant about the baby drama ... I too think people want to spread their misery by making everyone have babies. So happy to meet like minded people in life! :o)
