Early Spring in Oregon

I took this picture about one hour ago in front of my apartment building.   It is early springtime in Oregon.  

The crocus are blooming and the daffodils are just about to open.  There will be massive blooming of daffodils in about a week.   Sure feels good when the flowers begin to bloom.   It is still cold but the afternoons get a bit warmer.  

The daylight is coming a bit earlier and the sunset is a bit later.  I sure do appreciate this longer days part of the year in preference to the November and December shortening of days.

I will post pictures of daffodils in a week or so.   That is one of my favorite times of spring.   There are daffodils everywhere in Oregon.  Both in peoples yards and even in the wild.

Market of Choice

Man. It has been a long time since I made a new entry in my blog. Time seems to just go by and I am not as attentive to blogging as I used to be. I need to get back to making entries more often.

We have a new Market of Choice in Corvallis. Wow.. What a great store. Market of Choice reminds me of Healthy Foods and other stores like that in cities. I visited a Healthy Foods when I was in Denver last summer. Our new Market of Choice is even better and is right here in our little city of Corvallis.

I have been to market of Choice only two times so far, but I have found a great variety of things. I eat gluten free now and they have the most gluten free items I have ever seen. I can eat just about normally with the breads, cinnamon rolls, pancake mix, and so many other gluten free items they carry. I have a cupboard and freezer filled with great foods now that I don't need to spend a lot of time trying to convert to gluten free. Thank you Market of Choice for building a new store in Corvallis.

I took this image from their web page. I know it isn't a very good picture, but I will snap a better photo with my cell phone when I next stop at their store and I will then edit this post with a better picture.
