So it’s Sunday. My hip is not really bad today. My legs and hips are all a little sore because that was a long run for me yesterday, but my right hip does not seem particularly sore and I am not limping. Yay!

I’m taking a rest day today, other than strolling an art show and doing housework.

Breakfast:

After breakfast the boys and I went to the Beth-El Art Festival.

This is a huge art show and it’s really nice because most of it is either indoors or in covered breezeways. We thought that the art show started at 10, but it actually started at 11, so we were early. Luckily, we could check out all of the large outdoor sculptures while we waited.

The boys were really intrigued by this found-object crane sculpture.

We all thought the steampunk-esque fish were awesome.

The names of all of these pieces were cool. Barbiecuda:

My sister needs these horseshoe sculptures on her farm:

Finally after hanging out for a while…

they let us into the synagogue.

We weren’t allowed to photograph all of the amazing artwork that filled the temple, but I did sneak a photo of the beautiful sanctuary.

My Facinating Life Caroline Calcote-45

I saw so much artwork that I LOVED. In particular, I was obsessed with Daryl Thetford. He was there and I met him and talked to him for several minutes. His pieces were amazing and I kept picturing them in our new house (if we ever actually get one). This is the piece that I really, really, really want (it’s ginormous IRL):

It was on display at the art show and seemed more red than pink in real life. Oh look, there is a Daryl Thetford Facebook page! I am now stalking him.

Once back outside I took one final photo of these little bats which I also loved.

After we saw everything at the art show twice, we headed over to Earth Origins to get some lunch for the boys and to do a little shopping.

My Facinating Life Caroline Calcote-47

I got them a sandwich and some sides from the hot/cold bar and set them up in the café while I shopped.

I really like this little healthy grocery store. I wish it was on our side of town. I love Rollin’ Oats as well, but they have a much bigger produce section at Earth Origins.

My Facinating Life Caroline Calcote-48

Rollin’ Oats is currently building an expansion, however, so I’m excited about that!

My Facinating Life Caroline Calcote-49

I just picked up a few essentials, plus chocolate for my little art aficionados.

Once we got home I made my lunch, which was just a big salad with leftover ground beef/bbq sauce/veggie mixture dumped on top.

My Facinating Life Caroline Calcote-52

I spent the afternoon cleaning house, doing laundry, and prepping food.

My Facinating Life Caroline Calcote-56

New paleo mayonnaise…this time with avocado oil and light olive oil. I think it came out much better than the last batch which was too olive oily.

I like putting individual sheets of aluminum foil under each of the various veggies. That way you can take them out as they get done since they are all different sizes and require different cooking times.

Chad baked a huge piece of salmon for dinner.

That’s it for Day 21. 9 days to go on my Whole30. Here’s to a new week!
