How I am spending my First Saturday in May.

Oh, doing nothing.

I should be getting the house in tip-top order because it goes on the market Monday. And I have been cleaning the kitchen. I have been over paying my next door neighbor kid to mow the lawn. I should over pay him, our lawn mower is blowing oil and Joe only got the front mowed last week. After several inches or rain, then glorious sunshine for several days, the back yard is a jungle.

I was concerned, but only slightly. I had a feeling the middle school hunk in the making next door would need some pocket change.

He did not let me down.

I went shopping before all the above, first to the South Side Farmers Market which I have been looking forward to visiting for a month now! The market is just warming up for, just beginning to awake from the long winter months to share the earths bounty with the local residents.

I scored some asparagus and a small bottle of my favorite bee-honey hand lotion. Yes, she has lost half her bees. No, they have no idea why. She has not raised her prices from last year. A very pleasant surprise.

Then I decided that I had to start photographing Fort Wayne. That my favorite places were begging me to immortalize them on my digital camera.

And dang it, I'm tired of my 55-300 lens.

So I go to the local camera shop and emerge with a new lens.

I can't wait to use it.

Oooh, what lens did you get? I'm finally getting asparagus in my garden now, after it started up we received a 17 degree freeze and I thought it was over for the hear.

But just last week, its back with a vengence. I love the first fresh vegetables of spring after a winter of potatoes and carrots.

I know you are happy to be moving south -- I wish for a quick sale!
