First Wednesday of October Tonight.

IT WAS First Wednesday in Forest Grove, which meant the Farmers Market was in operation.
I don't think anyone wanted to go home. It was a beautiful warm evening and there were tables on the sidewalk, wine flowing in the shops and lots of good things to eat and see.
It was my assignment tonight to take lots of photos for the newspaper I work for - although I am not officially a photographer. However, we might need the photos for tomorrow's paper ... so, I volunteered.
I felt quite self-conscious, but eventually it wore off. I even got up the nerve to ask around and see if I could go upstairs in one of the older buildings so as to take a picture down on everything from up above. I found someone who left me go upstairs into a new building being renovated - 14,000 square feet of executive and retail space, if anyone's interes ted.
Adelante Mujeres - Upward Women - was giving away "sabrosas," or little treats; hors d'oeuvres. It was chicken mole, practically my most very favorite thing to eat that's not pure chocol ate.
There were pile s of peaches, cases of apples and tons of tomatoes. And much, mu ch more. I wish you could have been there with me. We would have sat at a small iron table on the sidewalk and had a glass of wine and talked and talked. Or just looked around. There was music and quite a show going on.
But I suppose it really is time to
head off toward the old pillow and set the alarm for tomorrow.
The big debate is tomorrow night but I will be doing "downward facing dog" and "the plank" and "cat and cow" in yo ga class. I'm sure somewhere, someone will be playing the debate over and over again and I can catch up on what I missed - or didn't miss. This weekend I am off to a conference on using and selling words and picture taking tips. We'll see what develops. Oh, ho ho! I crack myself up - femminismo
p.s. I visited EyeCandy. Now I want to go to Athens, Georgia, and get scared at the movies! Ooh! The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari

Wow, what a brilliantly colourful post. I can taste that food from here! And what a great photo of that little girl and her adult.

Say, any time you want to see a scary movie in Athens, GA., just come on over...
