Weekend Plans: Final Update

I have to admit, we were lazy.

But we did manage to achieve goal #3 of camping out in the cabana by the pool Saturday night. We both fell asleep listening to the cicada and cricket symphony, only to be awakened shortly before midnight by Bella’s one bark. She wanted to go and in go to bed! So we stumbled around half-asleep and closed up the pool and headed inside.

Sunday morning we got up and drove to Warwick, NY for the Sunday farmer’s market per usual. We weren’t yet sure about the Ren Faire but we had plenty of time to decide.

What’s wrong with this photo (it’s also the reason I took it)?

This is coming in to my favorite time of the year for the market. Lots of things to choose from! We came home with zucchinis, a striped eggplant, a small butternut squash, a fresh log of goat cheese, some poblano peppers, lettuce, parsley, bread, a free range chicken, and a flat iron steak, all of which will feature in our meals in the upcoming week.

Once we got home we realized we just weren’t in the mood for the Ren Faire. After our full day Saturday of canoeing and lots of swimming we just wanted to relax. We’ll go next weekend since we have three whole days to choose from.

We managed a little bit more of goal #4, which was to swim since it was a beautiful day. Doesn’t the water look delicious? The temperature is holding at 75 degrees right now and once you get in and get wet it feels really good.

A few more weeks and the pool will be closed. Boo.

When I picked up my camera yesterday and started changing the settings for what I knew I was going to be taking photos of I realized that I had left the camera on settings I had not intended while taking my Green Turtle Pond photos. No wonder I had so many where the color was off and lots not in complete focus! Duh! The bad thing about having more knowledge about my camera’s numerous setting off the manual modes is that, well, maybe I have too much knowledge! Check thy settings, Lynne, every time you pick up the camera!!

Hey, third photo class tomorrow: White Balance and Composition!

I wish people would get the spelling right if they are going to represent their goods to the public! That’s a big thing of mine—and I always notice misspellings.

Sounds like a fun and relaxing weekend!

What are you going to do with the butternut squash?  I’ve been eating a lot of butternut squash risotto with asparagus.  Really yummy although you know me - I cheat with a Lundberg mix that I add butternut squash soup to, to make it squashier.

Bigsis, I know! It was kind of funny actually. It was fun, but not exactly relaxing at times. Lots of exercise if you call that relaxing! wink

C, just roast it split with some butter until it caramelizes, along with our free range chicken. You mean a Lundberg mix for the risotto part? I guess I’m not familiar with it. Do you use fresh asparagus?

Sounds like a great weekend. “Blossum”—ugh.

My photography teacher told me to always reset the camera after you’ve taken a photo for which you’ve changed settings. In other words, revert to some relatively neutral mode.

I’ve been taking everything on automatic lately. Lazy, I know.

Steve, well my teacher told me that too but obviously in this case I didn’t listen!! I just forgot. Oh well. Lessons learned.

Yes, a mix for the risotto part and yes, absolutely fresh asparagus that I throw in for the last 5 or 10 minutes.

You sound to have had a good shop at the farmers market and yes, the pool looks very inviting.
