Town trip. . .



This is from two summers ago I think on the fourth of July. I found this while rummaging thru pictures on our computer.

Zita was such a little monkey. Well, she still is.

Today was a sucsessful though humiliating shopping trip.

Wendnesdays are town days as the health food store sells local produce on that day. Their stuff is yummy, unpredictable and occasionaly even cheaper than the pale and generally mushy chemical laced Martin's fare. Today's prize was baby cipollini onions!!!!! I haven't seen those since Italy!!!. . . . and of course banana peppers, canaloupe, green leaf lettuce, zuchini, green beans, and so on.

Today I just had Zita with me which I always enjoy as a little one on one time. Angelica and I always enjoy our conversations when we are all out together but Zita seems to often get shoved around alot by both of us, in her attempts to explore things beneath the conversation.

Today Zita licked the scoopers for the bulk grain bins at the hf store and the lady saw her do it behind my back and made sure to mention "Don't worry, I'll sterilize them."

And as if leaving bodily fluids one place wasn't enough, Zita peed on the floor of the thrift store too, somewhat deflating my exitment over the really cute maternity dress I found. The ladies there were really nice about it but I am probably getting such a reputationa at all of these places that I am wondering if the real reason all those moms at St. Johns wear sunglasses is the bliss of anonimity, when out by oneself. . . . . .
