U District Street Fair

The above is a "Hockneyized" version of one photo I took at the University District Street Fair yesterday. If you want to see the original photos click on the title of this post and it will take you to my Flickr account. It was perfect street fair weather at about 75F. The U District Street Fair is the unofficial 'kick off to summer'. The DH and I enjoyed browsing our separate ways and then we met up to share a margarita at the Ness Floral Shop that is now a tavern, return to the car and compare notes. We both got a bit nostalgic about our young years when we lived on 52nd NE and we just rolled down the hill to enjoy the music, street fair food and of course the 'skin' that was on display if the weather was anywhere above 65F.

Other than that, I ran, and ran for a good solid 2 hours yesterday BEFORE walking uppety ump miles at the street fair. We had Greek style pizza at White Center Spaghetti House last night and I tried to watch a DVD with the DH last night but my eyes would NOT stay open. I slept for TEN hours last night; I needed that!

Today I have worked for about 5 hours weeding and planting beans and a couple of sugar pumpkins. Now I am frittering away time on the computer and at some point I need to get upstairs and fix dinner (bok choy, peas pods and chicken stir fry with cashews). There is a wee bit of school work to attend to as well.

Sounds like a fabulous weekend! I loved all the photos from the art fair. My favorite was the one of purses/bags. I also liked the one of the woamn with the wand.

Glad to hear you did so many things you love this weekend!

Sounds like a great day! And I could swear that Nicki lived on 52nd street NE. Could that really be true? That would be a CRAZY coincidence!

Your street fair sounds like fun. You're chatting with a country girl here who has never been to a street fair. Around here with all our small rural towns, we have town festivals which probably aren't the same at all.

I went to the fair on Saturday. It is a great event to start the Summer season, especially when the weather is rather summery. I enjoy the skin displays the most.

Sounds like your weekend was very SPECIAL. I liked the purses also. Right now at Curves they are having a silent auction on purses that are donated and funds go to 5 charities. What a collection!
