Kingston, NY Farmer's Market

Hello again. Sorry for the long silence on my part. We spent July and August settling into our new home. And then, at the end of August, my dear dad, Joel, passed away totally unexpectedly at the age of just 66. Here's a photo of the two of us at Rahm's and my wedding - one of the happiest days of my life. I'm so glad he was there to share it with me.

As you can imagine, life has gotten even busier and a whole lot more sad. I'm still trying to wrap my mind and heart around the idea that he is gone - it's pretty hard to fathom. I have not had much time to cook in the past few weeks, nor much of an appetite, so even if there had been time to blog, there would have been nothing to write about!

But as the shock of my dad's death begins to fade a little, I find that I am regaining some of my appetite for life (and food.) We're having Indian summer right now - the sky is a clear blue, the leaves are turning yellow, orange and red, and the weather is surprisingly warm. Yesterday morning, Rahm and I decided it would be a good day to stroll around the lovely Saturday farmers market in Kingston, NY's historic stockade district with our little Will. And I remembered to bring the camera.

Below is a slideshow of some of the photos I took of the fall bounty. Enjoy. And I hope to write more soon.

I was surprised to see your post pop up in my e-mail but so glad I clicked through. Sorry to hear about your Dad - I'm sure he'll continue to protect & guide you from his new home as you settle into yours. Take care.

Lovely photos, glad to see you've got some great stuff at your market! So sorry to hear about your dad, that is an incredible loss at any point in time. Glad to hear you're beginning to recover, my thoughts are with you and rahn and will (he's so big!) Looking forward to more posts, welcome back, missed you!

What a beautiful wedding photo - that's so sad to hear about your Dad. The farmers market slide show was great - it's always fun to see what gardeners and small farmers are marketing in different areas of the country. Your blog is wonderful - I'm glad your back!

So sorry about the loss of your father. Thank you for posting such lovely farmers market pictures. The jewel tone colors of autumn are my favorite and you did a great job of capturing a real feeling of fall. Take care.
