sights and sounds at the Saturday morning Farmer's Market in Ithaca

|here's what's for lunch this week|
This is my sacred symbol from the hot and cold stones used in a LaStone massage by Evie Reville, of Bella Stone in Trumansburg on Saturday. I have benefited greatly from each massage I have received from Evie over the last few months. Each session is an experience in tuning-in to my body, and then letting go completely, letting all tension fall away. I am always left with a heightened sense of well-being and a renewed sense of power and strength. Her blog is http://bellastone.wordpress.com/
There was a waxing -almost- quarter moon in the clear sky Saturday night.
I discovered a new level of zoom on my camera that i didn't know existed. wow!
late night kim chi
I had to start making kim chi because I was eating almost a jar of it a day. And at $7/pint from McDonald's Farm, it was really adding up. Now I just pick up some boy choy or napa cabbage, carrots, daikon radish, hot peppers, garlic, onions and ginger (yes MMF grows ginger) from the markert and after a week in ferment, I have my very own delicious kim chi. I haven't done a cost analysis yet, but the self- satisfaction quota is off the charts. It helped to have Sandor Katz's book to guide me through the process. I love that the recipes in the book are rather vague, because I end up putting different amounts of each thing in each batch, making each jar different, but always delicious.
along the banks of Lake Seneca on Sunday...
We met up with my sister in law's family to go sailing
