On our way home from the beach, my friend and I stopped at a fun market, where she bought me this beautiful bouquet of flowers. They remind me of my Aunt Leslie and her love for sunflowers. I'm all about fresh flowers in my kitchen. They brighten up any room!
4. Speaking of which I haven't mentioned enough how much I love my library, which is not even a mile from my house! I love it so much. Yesterday before we had us a crazy thunder, lightening and rain storm I stopped in quickly to get me some weekend chick flicks and went upstairs to the YA section of the library, which is new to me! I found a couple of books that I'm sure will be great reads. Oh how I love to read during the Summer months and even more so to be reading at the beach!
5. I knew this Summer at MVY was going to be amazing, but it is just fantastic. I'm so loving working in the ER! This is true ER medicine with mostly vacationers and injuries. I saw my first jelly fish sting, which was awful on someones back this week. I also had a guy this week literally blow out both of his knees; haven't seen that before. The people here are so nice and its fun to hear where they come from.
6. This week's supermarket specials included red, yellow and orange peppers, onions, zucchini and avocados. Which means I made a mean stir-fry with brown rice. It was delicious. Haven't made stir fry in a good while. It's kind of been fun to cook around supermarket specials, which my friend Melanie says she does too. I also loaded up on Chabani yogurt for when my mom comes to town in a little over a week. They were .88 which I've never seen them even on the mainland at that price.
7. Yesterday for dinner I treated myself for half price appetizers at the Blue Canoe. This is a tiny restaurant that overlooks the harbor. Mr. J wants me to find the best clam chowder on the island for when he comes to visit in 4 weeks! This was some pretty amazing chowder, even though I only ate 1/4 of it because of getting full on the most incredible lobster fritters. All I can say is only in New England will you find such a delicacy. The view was so beautiful especially with storm clouds rolling in!
