This Thursday is take your wife to work day. Next Friday is Hawaiian shirt day.

This blog post is about exactly what the title states. But I couldn't resist a reference to the movie Office Space. My husband will definitely get a laugh out of that one. Who could forget the Bob's, badges of flare, stapler gate, stupid reports, yeaaaahhh and of course Hawaiian shirt day. But for me last Thursday started with a bus ride downtown with the hubb's. This is where he works. Somewhere in there anyway.

I hung out most of the morning on Nicollet mall. There is a huge Farmer's market on Thursdays. It must go on for at least 10 blocks, give or take.


My husband sometimes comes home with a bouquet of flowers on Thursday. But not for awhile. Hint...hint...









A pickle bar, meats and berries, millions of veggies and even some sweets.





An Onion tart for lunch...



Desert...


Free Izzy's ice cream for this guy.




Now for the real reason I came downtown. I'm part of a BVAS gallery show here at the Thrivent building. So I wandered over to check out the show after lunch.








These 2 paintings are from my fiction project. Blue Morpho and Pacific edge.



I call this painting Costa Rica. The frog is my favorite part. The show runs through August 30, 2010. Now on to Macy*s...

I like you Blue Morpho, it went well with the blue frame. What day is the "buy something day"?
