Saturday BBQ

Saturday was quite the eventful day for me and I must say, I'm pretty exhausted and haven't yet been able to catch up. It all started at 7am ... I decided to wake up with Isaiah (he needs to be at work by 7:30am) and get an early start to the day. My plan was: gym-hour work out, shower, walk to the farmer's market at PSU then take the Portland street car back home (or close to home.) And the plan worked out.

I decided while at the gym, I'd walk all the way to PSU. Let's see, I think that was about, oh about 1.8 miles? Usually I jog that much, but it was quite tiring. When I hit the pearl I saw Braille Graffiti.

I'd seen this before and it made me laugh, so I thought I'd take a picture. I decided to take pictures of my adventures so here goes.

This is the 405 over pass looking toward NW 23rd.

This is the same spot, but looking toward the Pearl.

A shot of my walk down town.

Here is our beautiful downtown public library. If I could, I'd hang out here all day, buuuuut it kind of smells cuz the bums decided it's a great bathroom.

And here is the Old Church. I LOVE photographing old churches. I'm not a religious person, but there is something about ancient churches that I find so beautiful.We performed here last year for my Caroling concert. It was built in 1883 and now is a nonprofit historical site used for functions.
Can you see that detail?

Now I've reached the farmer's market.

Time for some baking!

Cherries, Blueberries, black-raspberries and raspberries.

This is me making Lemon Curd. Unfortunatley, since I was rushed, I didn't measure out the lemon well enough and I think it was too sugary. Oh well.

And finally:

Cherry Crisp and Triple Berry Crisp! Bon Appetite.
