Ha, Wednesday we did make it to the market. The weather looked quite nice when I was at the computer to post, so I had great hopes for the day. Pity Jan had a longer sleep and got up rather late. Then of course there's first coffee to drink, watch a bit the news on tv, take a shower, then grab a sandwich( and then he often says I am the one that needs a lot of time to get ready for a walk or so!!!!!grrrrrrrrrrrrr).
Okay, still no problem when we finally stept out the door to go to the market. It was a bit fresh, but with sunshine, you could say agreable weather. So at the market we kept our eyes open to see if we could find some speaker-wire, but no, there wasn't. But surfing the first part of the market, the sky was getting darker and darker and yeah, the forecasted rain fell down on us.
Not just a little rainshower, but a real serious amount of water splashed down, and that wasn;t the worst, it even hailed! The good thing about a market is that almost all stands have a roof( from cloth, but made to keep the water away from their products) so we found a good shelter. ROFL, did you ever notice, that when suddenly there is a severe rainshower(or something like it) people are just acting like cockroaches?????? In time of 1 or 2 minutes the crowd is flying to all directions, all gathering under a very small shelter, and if you had the nerve to then walk over the market, it would be a lot easier, cause you could walk where ever you liked, without having to watch your every move, without being blocked by good-willing mothers with prams ( great things, those prams, but a curse on small paths on a market!!!).
It took a while to get almost dry again, and we could continue our market-visit. No speaker wire found yet(I think Jan has to go to a shop for that), but found some real cheap vegetables and some fruit, so the trip had been usefull anyway. And the best part of it(grin grin): arrived home again, the sky had cleared up and the sun peeped through the clouds. %%!!@***""++&&!!!!!!!!!!!! (Fill in the words yourself, LOL).
Yesterday I did go out to do just a few grocerie shoppings, not much, some cat food, a package of sugar, a bottle of mayonnaise, things like that. Oh and there was a nice offer in the supermarket for some great jam, so I bought that, one is made from figs and the other from oranges. MMMMMMMM, I tried the figs, oh, it tasted so good! And I like the one from oranges too, with the little skin parts in it, sweet but also a little bit bitter.
Towards dinner time I made a hotchpotch, mashed potatoes with sauerkraut, and small squares of fried out bacon. A little piece of meat with it and we had a tasty meal. There is enough left of the hotchpotch for this evening too, and you know, the second day it even tastes better. I also like to fry the hotchpotch a bit in a pan and put it on a fresh white sandwich! Easy meal but very nourrishing.
As Halloween is coming near, I thought I might give you my Halloween kit today. I hope it isn;t too scary for your pictures!
Have a wonderful weekend.
