As Todd soon will be commenting in weekends for an undetermined amount of time, we decided to set aside today as a family outing day. We began our day at one of my favorite events, the monthly Flea Off Market (known in our house as the Hippie Flea or the Huffington Post Flea as opposed to the Fox News Flea). Food trucks with yummy fish tacos, brick oven pizza, and flea tea ( tea with vodka). Ballon artists, dj's spinning tunes, terrariums, old junk, new crafts, vintage clothes, and lots of hippies and their dogs. Embree and I love coming. This was the first visit for the boys. It was fun for us all.
Afterward, Todd needed pair of work shoes, so we threw off all the good vibes of the Flea Off Market and headed to the St. Matthews Mall. Fun is not the word for that stop. It's a perfectly nice mall, as malls go, but they are just such a shrine to consumerism. Creepy. Such a leap on the spectrum from the morning's atmosphere.
Tonight, we will enjoy a family dinner with all the kids taking part in the K-1 Our Whole Lives class at the UU church.
No chores today (except planting a few pansies). No cleaning, no sorting, no packing. A day of rest, much needed by all of us.
