Saturday morning Andy, Amy, & I had such fun tooling around Murfreesboro. Andy fixed us cheese toast for breakfast at home, & then we headed out. We made a quick stop at Haynes Hardware with Andy, a long standing Murfreesboro enterprise, although it was in a new location from when I lived there forty years ago; then headed uptown to the Saturday Farmers Market. We saw several people Andy & Amy knew, which was fun, including one I hadn’t seen since high school and who recognized me immediately :-). We stopped in the Country Gourmet Store right off the square and had a chocolate covered strawberry and had fun looking at all their offerings. There was a section of the store just of things made in Tennessee, so that was fun. We did lots of driving around different parts of town throughout the morning, and we made a stop at the sunflower fields. I had been seeing people post pictures of this killer sunflower field all over facebook, and it was one of the places I really wanted to see. And alas, it was such a cloudy day that all of the sunflowers had their heads bent over – at least that’s what I’m thinking. No sun for them to follow. Dang. It was still cool – acres and acres of sunflowers, as far as you could see.
We left there and headed to the Old Time Pottery to buy cemetery flowers, and then started making our rounds. We went out to Roselawn and put flowers on Harry’s grave, and then back into town to Evergreen, where we put flowers on Amy’s Aunt Jean’s grave, and here, on her momma and daddy’s – Nancy and Buddy’s – grave. We thought the flowers were really pretty. And then we spent a while wandering around looking at the different graves. I do love, love a cemetery. We left there and went to eat lunch at the Slick Pig, which I feel like I had been waiting to do my whole life :-). It did not disappoint. And then spent more time driving around looking at different parts of town before heading back to the house to watch movies, doze, read, and cook veggies from the farmers market for lunch. What a great, great day.
