I had some tacos topped with marinated cabbage. They were soooo good! I could have had a bowl of that cabbage all by itself. Also had an ear of fried corn on the cob. Amazing! I've never had it fried before and WOW does it make a difference. It rivaled my favorite way of making corn on the cob which is to grill or bake it in the husk. Didn't think to get pictures but honestly the food disappeared so fast I'm not sure I could have snapped some off fast enough.
Then we headed up to Traders' World, a super humongous flea market about half way between Cincinnati and Dayton. We were window shopping mostly, and in fact didn't buy anything at all. But it sure is fun to look at all the interesting and different stuff. Truly - you can't find unique items like these at your typical shopping mall. Donna and I both love old time tools, appliances and household implements and we had fun trying to figure out what certain things were used for. People were pretty inventive in the days before electricity and plastic, and there were some items we thought would have sold pretty well on an 1890's version of an infomercial!
Again... didn't get pictures because we were too busy enjoying the sites.
But I did get a couple outside, as we were leaving. Here's one of the local wildlife... they really need to train them to stay off the roof :P
Who knew there were oceans in Ohio?
And watch out Erik... Donna's got a new man in her life!
On the way home we swung by Jungle Jim's International Market, which is a real shopping experience! If you're ever in the Cincinnati area you've got to check it out. The reason I go there is because of their huge selection of food you just can't find anywhere else. They have sections for many different countries - and I'm not talking about one corner of a little shelf but entire rooms dedicated to different international cuisines! They also do cooking classes and demonstrations, and like Traders' World have native wildlife roaming around the store and parking lot :)
We went there specifically to get some Elk burgers, and I got a package for me and one for Donna. We also spotted some antelope, wild boar and squab which are on the list for next month's safari shopping trip. I love trying new things!
I made it home around 6ish, took a nap and then went out to do a Full Moon Ceremony. The moon was so beautiful last night! I tried to get a picture but with my little point and shoot camera it was a major fail. Good thing my friend Fifth Density knows how to take a great picture.
In case you're wondering about the Full Moon Ceremony, it can be as simple or elaborate as you want. Knowing the full moon was in Scorpio which made it about shedding light and seeing the truth of situations, I asked for understanding about some things that have been on my mind. I also resolved to use the power of the full moon to help me carry forward in the decision I've made about business. Then I affirmed the intentions I'd set last month. One for spiritual growth and expansion, one for people connections and the third for business and money. I'm really excited about moving forward and can't wait to experience all the adventures I'm sure the upcoming year will bring!
