11/14/15 (Saturday) in Menifee, CA (Wilderness Lakes-TT)
We’ve been taking it easy and accomplishing a few projects since our move. I have fond memories of Old Town Temecula Farmer’s Market, from when we were here 3 years ago, so since they’re only open on Saturdays, we went there today, even though John was not feeling very well.
It was just as wonderful as I’d remembered: wonderful displays of excellent produce and crafts. Unique products as well as good prices. Warning: parking is scarce, so try to get there early (they’re open 8-noon). Here’s a sampling. I bought some Jujube, a sweet dried fruit, usually for making tea, with lots of healthy benefits. Unfortunately, I didn’t take a picture of it. We also got a bag of blue lake green beans and 2 red peppers for $3. Later we took a stroll along the cool railroad tie boardwalk in Old Town.
When we got home I read outside, near our canal: it was such a beautiful sunny day. Several of the birds came by looking for food. What they got was photos of themselves. If you click, then hover over the images they hopefully will show a caption when I put one in. (New changes in WordPress)
Later a gentleman strolled by with his fishing gear. When he caught his catfish, he let me take pictures. It was a good size. He said he likes to hold them at the mouth because their skin is slimy and you’d take off that protective slime covering if you touched it. I suspect it would also be harder to hold it. He said the teeth didn’t bother him. After the photos he put it on a stringer in the water so that this fish wouldn’t keep trying to get his bait.
Since Saturday John has developed respiratory flu symptoms and the weather had gotten cool and windy, so, other than venturing to get groceries and to church, we’ve pretty much stayed at home.
