a late night that ended around two thirty in the morning was partially clarified through spending some mid-morning quality time at the caffeination station that i have cunningly installed in my kitchen. two mugs of joy juice and a pale blue-green pill and hey here we go!!!
our amazing saturday continued with a visit to the farmer’s market where we bought chocolate from my defiantly distinctive buddy dan ledandan who crafts mind-altering and soul-refining chocolate . . .
then over to visit with the pastry peddler people who sold me a maple chomeur . . . my second date with this stupidly good dessert made with cream and butter and maple syrup that (if i don't park the entire thing in my own deserving body), will be served up for sunday dinner dessert with wendy, dawson, and lexie! here's my pastry peddling chum colin . . .
from there it was time to break our fast with a late brunch, so we headed over to maggie's eatery where we ate an excellent meal of soup and salad, really tasty sandwiches, and some butter pecan shortbreads.
here's a happy girl!
while there we ran into a number of friends including mike reynolds . . .
and enjoyed the cerebral tightrope acrobatics of andrew tan wei aun . . .
of course while at maggie’s i also spent time with alan black whose restaurant it is (in this pic second from the right with my friends rickie young, bobby watson, and phil connor - all talented and recorded musicians)
al is somehow managing a slow to depart ear infection. all this while being a working drummer and harmonica player, and running a restaurant. not letting his unfortunate affliction get in the way of a good time, al and i continued to plan our photo show which is tentatively set for the evening of july 12th - a full moon and a damn good time is in store for both of us, and most especially all who know us. we're both very jazzed to get to share our pixillated joy with the public and astonished visitors!
