I did laugh at the irony of the situation, though. Every now and then I'd look over at this big heavy-set farmer, with his faded plaid cotton button-down, denim overalls, and heavy farm boots, his thick shock of hair and full beard. And I'd wonder what he'd think or say if he knew that the girl selling his meat was a vegetarian.
After the market, I went running then drove to a free yoga session in Audubon Park. It was incredibly pleasant, contorting my body in fancy ways under the shade of a giant oak tree. They tried to make us do this exact move:
Needless to say I fell over. But I did do a headstand! I felt super legit.
During the relaxation exercises at the end of the session (where you lay on your back and close your eyes) I fell asleep. It was a very refreshing three-minute nap.
Then I went running in the park because I had never been there before. It's a beautiful place! I'd feel silly driving somewhere specifically to run there but I think it might be worth it in order to run in that park.
Another thing that made today wonderful! My farm boy (the one who gave me corn last week) invited me to his farm! I might go pick vegetables there Monday morning (for the Tuesday market), if Kelly and Tati will come with me. I think it would be really cool to get a glimpse of that part of the farmers market system, before the produce actually makes it to the market. Even though I grew up in a rural area, there's still a lot I don't know about agricultural life, plus it varies place to place. I hope this works out!
