A Very Good Day - In Every Way
What an absolutely fantastic day we had
at the Omaha Farmers Market.
Be prepared for picture overload as I share.
We arrived early and set up.
Our canopy is the blue one to the right of the red van in the photo.
To the left of us was a couple selling jewelry made out of silverware
and to the right of us was a guy selling pottery.
It was just Rylee and I.
She snuck a few photos of me setting up.
So I got her back.
That's us : )
Once we were set up, we got a few minutes to sit down.
Good thing we took advantage of it
because it was the last time the rest of the day we got to sit.
This was the vendor directly across from us.
We bought a huge bunch of kale from them for only $2.
A few more vendors across the way.
This was one of the shops directly behind us.
They rang the bell at 8:00 a.m. and the crowds started drifting in.
Then our work began.
The people were so nice,
and downright pleasurable.
Our sales were great.
I would tell you, but don't want to brag : )
The thing is
even if sales had not been what we'd hoped
it was still a near perfect day.
The people-watching was entertaining in itself,
the weather couldn't have been any better,
and if nothing else
the dog show was worth the trip.
I missed getting a lot of good dogs photos
due to too many legs in the way
and being too busy.
But I managed to get a few.
Here are a few random shots.
(always a nose-picker in the crowd)
Outdoor patio cafe behind us.
These guys were quite good
drumming on only these 5 gallon buckets.
I liked her basket.
Riding in style.
Just before the bell rang to close the market
I visited this vendor just a few spaces down and
bought some cucumber plants and some Swiss chard.
Rylee snuck a photo again.
After the market was over and we packed up,
we took a walk while we waited for some of the other
vendors to get moved out.
Look what we found.
Those are some stylin' shoes.
When we left the Old Town area
we were on a mission to find our favorite place to eat in Omaha.
Rylee had the Classic Salad and Chicken Noodle Soup.
I had the Turkey Bacon something half sandwich and Tortilla Soup.
( I finally got food photos like Lori Skogg does)
After that we ended up at Village Pointe shopping center
where we shopped and had ice cream
and I did one more thing I had on my bucket list.
I got my ears pierced.
It was such a fun day.
I even let Rylee drive part of the way home.
And to think I almost turned this opportunity down.
