My girlfriend came and picked me up early Saturday morning to take me to the Farmers Market. This one is in Fort Pierce and is a combination Farmers Market and Crafts and it's set up every Saturday.
Below are some photo's of my day...
(lots of fresh veggies..of course!)
Among the crafts an artist sat painting while browsers checked out the finished products.
This craft below amazed me... they are all made of wood and all carved with a chain saw!
The show is next to the Indian River which divided the Mainland from Hutchinson Island.. they had a nice wide wall by the water that you could sit on and look over the water. Green caught my eye and I looked down to see the rocks below..
...and look what was patiently sitting out in the water wondering if any food was going to be tossed his way...
They also had a live jazz band! They were quite good. I haven't heard the nice melodic sounds of a saxophone in ... forever!
After we mulled around the Farmers Market we decided to hit some thrift shops... and we both wound up getting books! (big surprise huh?)
The books below are: Little Lord Fauntleroy by Francis Hodgson Burnett, Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett, The Ragman's Son by Kirk Douglas and Rose Cottage by Mary Stewart.
The Ragman's Son is turning brown and not in great shape but hey.. .50 cents folks.. and it's very readable yet!. This whole pile cost me One dollar and sixty-two cents. And of course, once again, my tbr pile grows instead of declining!
Since we don't do thrift stores every week I will put myself on the book ban again.. Thankfully, since I will now only buy books from series I am already in to there aren't many coming out..
The House on Durrow Street: by Galen Beckett (sept 28 release)
Secret of the Dragon: by Weis and Hickman (march 16 release)
Fablehaven: Keys to the Demon Prison: by Brandon Mull (don't know date)
The Magic Thief: Found : by Sarah Prineas (May 25th release)
God of the Hive: by Laurie R King (april 27 release)
The Necromancer: by Michael Scott (May 25th release)
The Fiend and the Forge: by H. Neff (March 23 release)
There are a few other books to series but no titles or release dates yet, One would be the next Stephen R Donaldson book
So...that's not bad having 8 (and most likely no more than 10) books coming out lets see if I can actually get my tbr pile down under 100 books! (y'all can stop laughing any time now!)
