Yesterday, I hit one of my favorite places to visit when I'm in the Washington D.C. area -- the Eastern Market. I love the artisans, people with antiques to sell, and the market place -- all kinds of flowers and oodles of good food.
I've been visiting my youngest sister, Heidi, and she and our mother and Heidi's two daughters enjoyed perfect weather at the market. Mom found some pottery and we bought food for lunch and dinner in the food hall. Fresh pasta. Yum. The only thing missing was one of my favorite vendors, Paul (aka BoxBoy) and his Demented Decoupage. He's usually at the market on Sundays and we had to go on Saturday due to scheduling our activities.
I've been visiting D.C. and Virginia for over 30 years because George was born there, grew up there and still considers Arlington his home town. I was happy when my sister's career after college took her there and she settled in Virginia. It's like going to my second home. Back to Florida on a flight tomorrow afternoon. Have to get back to recording!
