|9/1/17 Sky Valley Prairie Band at Phinney Farmers Market|
At our house, Labor Day weekend is always relaxing. While everyone else is rushing around to squeeze the last drop out of summer before school begins, we stay home or do things nearby and don’t attempt anything too ambitious. Friday evening was a perfect start to it – still sunny and warm, but not hot. We went out to the Phinney Farmers Market for dinner – savory French toast sandwiches from a place called Toste! (I know French toast has been a “thing” for a while now, but I didn’t know how delicious it would be.) Munching our sandwiches, we tapped our toes to the Zydeco music of Sky Valley Prairie Band – three women who all play multiple instruments, including a washboard. I stopped tapping and eating long enough to make a quick sketch.
