A beautiful day in the neighborhood

Well today I actually wanted to sleep in but my son set the alarm early and I got up to make him some breakfast.  So much for sleeping late.  I got ready and headed for the Farmer’s Market in Pembroke Pines.  There were about 30 vendors selling not just fruit and veggies but all kinds of things.  This is South Florida after all and we have lots of different cultures blended together here.  There was even a vendor selling organic coffee made from a mushroom (MLM). I walked around for a bit, but it was really hot out today.  Here’s a lil’ sampling:

It was really really hot out and the fruit didn’t look very appetizing, so no pics of fruits.  I drove a couple of blocks to do some window shopping at my favorite budget design store….Kirklands!  I love Kirklands! They already have Xmas decorations up.  I love these java tin like wall hangings.

cute huh?

I’ve heard of a farmer’s market in SW Ranches, and on my way home I decided to drive around and look for it.  SW Ranches is a few blocks from my house.  I didn’t find the market but ran into some MEGA-HUGOMONGOUS-MANSIONS.  Who the heck needs so much living space?  My house would fit into one of their living rooms.  Check this out:

I couldn't fit the entire house in the frame

Seriously, this is ONE house and I couldn’t even fit the whole thing in the frame.

This is a small part of an entrance to another mega mansion.

And then there were these pretty horsies…..there’s lots of horses in this area.

I was getting hungry, mostly thirsty because I forgot to bring my water bottle so I headed home.  I quickly made a liquid lunch ….spinach, strawberries, blueberries, mango, banana and oj.
