Farmers market, buying a house, and bruschetta!

9 Jul

When explaining to my mother-in-law why it is so expensive to put in a new septic system in your home, I said “it’s because no one wants to deal with your shit”.

We have signed and closed on our new house! We are first time buyers, and it was a long laborious process. I can only hope that next time we buy a house it goes smoother and we know what to look at first and what to say when we don’t like how it’s going. All that being said it was a very wonderful process and our realitor was great! I spent last night mopping, gardening, and scrubbing the new house because I do not want someone else dust and grime when we move in. The motivation kept going through this morning when I mowed the lawn at our current house, and I am very thankful. Harold put Kirby in front of the TV with Sesame Street and he was happy in his play pen.

I picked up my friend, and hopefully future sister-in-law-in-law for a day of garage sailing and the farmers market. She got in her necessary baby time and I got to spend time with a real person that I am not married to, poops their pants, or that I am serving at work. We got some great finds such a Wings, a perfume by Gerogio of Beverly Hills that you can’t buy anymore and happens to be my favorite scent ever for summer, cook books, coffee cups, mini loaf pans, and apple shaped plates (for Carrie, I hate apples). At the farmers market I bought some lavender simple syrup for lavender lemonade, lavender mojitos, and lavender butter cream frosting. We stopped at the bakery and I bought some day old baguettes which are perfect perfect perfect for bruschetta, and the island heritage museum and had a great day. It was well worth the taking the baby out and putting him back in the car a zillion times.

Signing for the house at the bank and Harold carrying me across the threshold of the new house. We then had a champagne toast with family. Also, as you can see in this photo I have incredibly long feet and high arches. God blessed me with the fact that I can almost never thrift shoes. I say blessed because I don’t like to stick my feet in peoples foot sweat. Do you?

Kirby was talking on the old time telephone!

Delicious five minute bruschetta. Take the bread and slice it on the diagonal, then put chopped tomatoes that have been tossed in basil and olive oil on the tops, and garnish with cheese! Place under the broiler for about 5 minutes. DELICIOUS! You get the obligitory shot of the food super close up, because some how that gives you a better idea of it, and then a picture of the food and the baby in the background because I don’t have the time to take food shots and thank gosh my camera is auto focus because I would never have time to focus it on my own.

Have a great weekend!
