Day 906: Not What It Was Supposed To Be

Today's Joyful Moment was supposed to be having an amazing doughnut at the Farmer's Market.  They're made locally, using local and fresh ingredients and the photos I've seen made me need one.  But they're only available at the Farmer's Market, currently.

It opened at 8 AM this morning.  We got there around 8:45.  Doughnuts all gone.  Someone else done et them.

I got none.

And I was sad.

I had at least three dreams about these doughnuts last night.

I am not joking.

So, we settled for other FM fare for breakfast.  Picked up our CSA veggies, and then headed home.

Fortunately, I also got my hair cut and was quite pleased with the slightly new style I'd requested, so got a Joyful Moment there.

And then I took HH out on a date.  It was to celebrate his birthday, since he'd been under the weather on the actual day.  We tried out a Greek restaurant for the first time and were both quite pleased with our food.  And then we went to a sporting goods store and got his Christmas, birthday, and Father's Day gifts:  shotgun, case, cabinet, and clay pigeon launcher.

I can't say that having another gun in the house is a Joyful Moment, but finally getting him what he wanted was.  And I want to be supportive of him taking up some new hobbies.

Just hanging out with him for a few hours sans children was a Joyful Moment, too.

And then dinner tonight at some friends' home.  Wonderful people and tasty food.  Plenty of Joyful Moments.  Until the kids pushed Baby B down a hill in a rickety old ride-on fire engine toy.  And it overturned.  I'll have to take some pictures of the horrible wound just below his eye.  Poor little boy.

Wishing you all decidedly non-violent Joyful Moments!

Sounds like an eventful day. My JM was spending time with your baby sis and her family, and with a friend visiting from New York. We love those New York connections and memories.
