Saturday dawned bright and sunny.
After all the rain we've had it was an especially welcome way to start the weekend.
Over breakfast, we discussed places we could go while still practicing social distancing. The local farmer's market came to mind.

Our farmer's market is small and located in a church parking lot.
Efforts had been made to keep the vendors well spaced from one another.
I couldn't resist this beautiful bouquet of flowers. The colors are so vibrant and now they are adding a cheerful dose of color to the dining table.
Our local strawberries are in season and so good. Nice and sweet with that rosy red color throughout.
One of the vendors sells breads and other baked goods. We brought home a loaf of her sourdough which is especially good toasted.
After coming home and putting the flowers in a vase, we lunched on sourdough toast and fresh strawberries.
It's been far too long since we've had homemade cookies in the house, so I remedied that. Half went in the freezer.
The sunny weather continued through Sunday.
It was a delightful day to read on the patio.
This book was finished.
A real page turner!
Then, I started this one.
A lighthearted read with a gardeny theme.
A bit of gardening was done between books. (gotta burn off those cookies calories somehow ;).
These two were purchased a few months ago.
I tucked them into my closet as they looked like good choices for summertime reading. I have read a few books by this author and enjoyed them. They take place on Nantucket. These books are described as perfect beach reads. I won't be going to the beach, but give me an icy drink and a lounge chair on the patio and I can pretend I'm there :)
I hope your weekend was a good one.
Have you read any good books lately?
