I went to Native Roots Market in Norman with Phillip. It was my first time to visit and I am so impressed! It's all "local, natural and organic!"
If you bring your own shopping bag, they give you a token to place in tube, labeled with the name of local charities. You can choose who to support with your token and they will donate a quarter per token to that charity. I think this is a great idea and it goes hand in hand with ideas James and I have had related to fund raisers and other events at SixTwelve.
I narrowed down my choice to Dreamer Concepts Studios because I think Amber Clour and her team are doing great things for the arts in Norman or to the Junior League of Norman because I used to be a member (when I lived in Norman) and because they do wonderful things for kids related to literacy, teen motherhood and many other contributions to the community. So what did I choose?
I chose Junior League! But next time I'll choose Dreamer! :)
After we left Native Roots, we went to Phillip's brother's house to see the ducks in the backyard. They really were cute and I got to experience something else I'd never done before.
There was a nest!
And I got to collect eggs!
They are a little bigger than chicken eggs. Phillip let me keep them and I scrambled a couple of them up this morning for breakfast. I have to say, they're pretty good!

After I got back up to the city, I took some lunch to James because he and Kyle were hard at work on painting new windows for the building!!!
Kyle was as excited as I was about it! Haha!
Then I came home and got ready for friends to come over and eat dinner, but first I had to take time to stop and appreciate the Wisteria that is in full bloom over my car port! It just looks and smells so good.
This morning I went to the Paseo Arts Festival planning meeting, which was also great! Life is full!
