Market Day

Saturday, May 12, 2018

Today started as another sunny and warm day but then some clouds rolled in and by late afternoon we had a couple of thunderstorms come through. They didn’t last but a few minutes but there was some pretty vivid lightening.

Farmers Market signThen entire team decided to go to the farmers market in downtown Baton Rouge this morning. Lisa was familiar with one of the vendors that were supposed to have really good cinnamon rolls so we all agreed to head out at 8:00 to have breakfast at the market. A large block was closed off downtown for the market for the day vendors and one side of the street had inside market with permanent vendors. There were lots of people and lots of goodies to sample and purchase. The local strawberries are in season and are wonderful. Unfortunately, the cinnamon roll vendor was a no show today. We asked at the information booth and they pointed to the place they were suppose to be and it as a big empty booth. We were so disappointed. Oh well, we went inside and all found something good for breakfast. We had a breakfast sandwich with hash browns. Quite good. Then is was back to the shopping. We bought some cheese, smoked sausage, fresh green beans, new potatoes and strawberries. It is all so good. Love fresh from the farm foods.

We made a few stops on the way back to the church, then it was time for a nap. Didn’t realize how tired we really were because we both got good naps. We relaxed and watched some TV this afternoon and then after the storms blew over decided to go back to the grocery store to get some things for tomorrow. On the way we remembered the park that Dave and Carol and Lisa and Mark had found at the end of Millerville Road. We decided to go check out the park. It’s a nice large park with a dog park, playgrounds, ball fields, a pond for fishing, picnic tables and park benches along with walking trails. We decided to walk a couple of miles while we were there. It was another nice day.

Tomorrow we will get to worship at Francis Asbury again, the last time until next February. Hope you all are praying for your pastor as they prepare for tomorrow. Stay safe.
