While yesterday was a bit of a letdown, with the job search getting in the way of having fun, today was far better.

It started with a trip to the farmers market. No raspberries to be seen, but we bought both cherries and strawberries.

We watched Nadal win the French Open and the English women beat the Scots.

We tried a new ice cream shop.

Ice Cream!

We headed up to the bookstore and, thanks to a gift certificate from my brother, came home with a new cookbook and new music and a new Peter Mayle collection.

I harvested my first (tiny) tomato from the garden in the mist and sorted out my greens and brought home herbs for supper (eggs, roasted new potatoes with rosemary, and the first green beans of the market season, cooked with herbes de Provence we bought on our trip to the region a decade ago).

The day concluded with The Tonys and strawberries and cream and some late night reading.

It was a good weekend.

How was yours?
