The drive to Duvall is usually so enjoyable, I take the back roads until the outskirts of Snohomish - where I take the Hwy 2 on ramp from 88th. The ramp was closed just as I went to make the turn. Directed to Lincoln street, past the Lord Hill turn & on to Monroe in a solid string of trucks & traffic. I called Courtney to tell her I'd be late...

I needed some advice on a sewing project I may get started on this fall & Courtney had the expertise to help! Lunch at the Grange was just a good as usual!

The plan was to pick up Mason, (Cassidy had a game in Fall City) then visit the Farmers Market in Carnation.
|Made me want to have a picnic!|
This market opens on Tue. afternoons by 3 p.m.
|New covered area for the market!|
It had been a couple years since I'd been here - the new cover is such a nice improvement!
There were some wonderful displays of fresh farm products!
|Sweet red peppers|
Such variety too!
Courtney & Mason tried their hand at marbling paper! Glycerin mixed with water - then add the colored dye of your choice. Next dip the sprayed paper in the mix & see how it comes out!
I don't think there's any way to go wrong when it comes to playing with bright colors!
|Veggies good enough to eat! :-)|
With a light breeze, brilliant sunshine, friendly vendors, it was a perfect way to spend the afternoon.
Mason is always hungry & directed us as rapidly as he could toward the food vendors! A hearty recommendation for the pulled pork sandwich convinced me to place a to go order. They had a variety of fresh salads, I couldn't pick just one, so decided to try two for tonight's dinner! With a lemonade drink that included fresh blueberries, I was ready to make the drive home :-)
