I love Macarons!

Fremont Farmers Market - That's Alexandra the owner standing in front of her 1973 Volkswagen Bus. It's cool that she asks me about updates on my breast cancer.

I think it's been 4 or five days straight that I have been on my website. I'm just working on good habits. Again 66 is the magic number to make it stick like glue, so I have a ways to go. In the meantime thanks for dropping in.

Today was another sunny day in Seattle. I'm from the East Coast so this weather is funny. You see the stores pushing their air conditioners and fans right near the front entrance. People are complaining about the heat already. I really don't know what this means to me, because here I am with my hot flashes that the chemotherapy pushed me in. So I'm just trying to figure out all these changes that are going on with my body and finding out ways to deal with them. 

I'm trying to drink nettle tea for the benefits but then its followed by hot sweats. Perhaps I can have a cold glass of nettle ice tea? That doesn't even sound right but who knows I may give it a try. I try to leave the window at night cracked open but I'm such a light sleeper that the noise is also a bothersome factor. I turn my fan on but then I get cold and clammy with the sweating. I starting taking Black Cohosh just a few days ago. I will give it 3 weeks. Cotton is my friend nowadays. I met a nice lady today at the laundromat. Her name is Janet and she said I have a glow. I told her why I'm back at the laundromat because I saw her just the other week. I told her I have breast cancer and with the chemotherapy it pushed me to menopause. She was so nice to listen to. I went back and gave her a chocolate chip cookie from Storyville Coffee Shop. I'm a giver and I will continue to do so. It's a circle of giving and receiving and giving and receiving I suppose. I have been very fortunate and have been blessed. I'm also a little social butterfly at times. 

Today was a good day. The temperature got up to 72 degrees. I just love going to the Farmers Markets in Seattle, WA. So many vendors, good food, and dogs. I've seen more dogs in Seattle than any other major city it seems. I can't wait to get a dog myself.

I saw Alexandra today at the market. She has her own business and sells macarons. They are just so tasty. After leaving the market I walked down to the Ballard Farmers Market. You have to try the smoked salmon hash from Travis at the Loki Fish Company.

 This hash is a plate of goodness!

I also stopped by to say hello to Gabriela at the Capuli Club Tea stand. Pieces of dried fruits and berries and lots of colors in a cute little packet. It's good for me to get out and walk and talk to all the folks that support me and share their passions with you. Thanks for visiting my site today. Feel free to check these businesses out. 

 So many beautiful colors. You can check them out at  www.capuliclub.com
