A few weeks back, while it was still warm outside, we attended a Harvest Festival which was something I really looked forward to. The first year that we accidentally walked into it, there was a movie playing in the grass - one of those healthy eating documentaries that was probably one of the first influences of local and sustainable eating I've had.
This year we attended and found many of the vendors were selling their local products, and there were also classes and demonstrations. One class that we missed out on was a mushroom growing class, but we did catch some of a vegan cooking class!
Our bread lady was there, and we bought a delicious baguette (the fig and anise one of course) to enjoy later with cheese. And of course, we saw popsicles and had to have some.
Yesterday I enjoyed wine and dinner with a friend at a local theater that plays movies every Wednesday night on their lawn. They call it their "Pitcher Show" and last night was a much loved showing of the 90's movie Spice World about the Spice Girls. Of course, my friend and I had to go see it. I forgot how silly the movie was, but there was so much love still in the humor and so many memories. All of the lyrics came back to us naturally. We even joked about the immense crowd of women in their 20's: that the Spice Girls must have bred fans that grew up to have impeccable fashion sense. Maybe it was just the group closest to us, but there were some blog-worthy outfits in that crowd.
