John and I have decided to stay here for another month. The sunshine is just too good to pass up, especially now that the rest of the nation is receiving an arctic blast. And there is more than enough to see and do in the Los Angeles area. We also found another reason to hang around here a bit longer. A couple of weeks ago I saw a field of ripe strawberries, so I have been looking for some place to buy them. I found them in the stores, but they did not have the very juicy ripe from the field flavor. What a surprise to find that I can purchase them at a farmer's market within walking distance of our home! Another bonus is that this farmer's market is a Certified Farmer's Market. That label means that what is sold in this market is locally grown. You can tell how excited I was about what we found, because after coming home I had to set out all our purchases and take a picture of them.
