Hello Friends and Happy Saturday

Hubby and I are enroute to New Rochelle, NY to attend the wedding of my cousin Kyton and his fiance’ Shivon…hey guys we are on our way!

 

Unfortunately, we will be missing Middletown’s Annual Old Tyme Peach Festival which is a major event for our little town. I know this year it will be bigger and better than last with perfect weather!

Here is my review from last year’s Middletown Peach Festival 2012

Hello Friends…I’m back and so did son and I – we went back to Cowgirl’s Creamery and it was definitely worth it.  I am not a big sweet-eater especially ice cream, but the thought of having Farm Fresh Hand Dipped Ice Cream for dessert was too hard to resist.  So much so that I ate my 2 scoops of Coconut ice cream as I was preparing dinner!

The cows were back in the barn at Emerson Farms but the goats were out at Cowgirl’s.

Hello Friends and Happy Sunday

The beginning of a new week and the 1st sunny Sunday in August was a fantastic day.  Before going to the grocery store my son and I stopped at Cowgirls Creamery in anticipation of eating some hand dipped ice cream made with fresh milk from down the road at Emerson Farms.  Unfortunately we arrived too early in the afternoon so we decided to take a few pictures instead.

Emerson Farms has been in existence since 1947, and is less than 5 miles from our house, however, it was the first time I’ve ever stopped.  The recent road construction created a Roundabout which makes it easier to enter Jamison Corner Road where the farm is located.

I tried to explain to my son how blessed we are to live so closely to an active farm and how fresh ice cream tastes better than anything purchased in a grocery store.

Hello Friends and Happy Saturday!

Here we are again, the 1st Saturday of the month so you know where to find me – set up at Dutch Country Farmers Market in Middletown.  I am still trying to purge household items, clothing, books, shoes anything I don’t need in order to make a few extra dollars and leave less to pack or donate when we decide to downsize.

Flea Market in Middletown

As in most states you’ll find community yard sales, but did you know that the longest yard sale starts in North Addison, Michigan and goes through to Gadsen, Alabama?   It is 690 miles long and people stake out their front yards along Hwy 127 for 4 days to sell new and used items!

According to the 127sale.com website, the yard sale officially starts the first Thursday in August and runs through to the following Sunday but this year it started on the 1st.  People travel from the North, South, East and West some make it an annual event renting RV’s and camping out year after year.  “An exchange of cultures with a common goal; to look, buy and sale!”

Can you imagine taking a week’s vacation to go to a Yard Sale?  Oh well, I’ll just stick with my little space in the parking lot on the first Saturday of the month from April to November!

Flea Markets are fun because you never know what you’ll find!
