Champaign, OH:  It's Magic


I love my sunny day
Dream of far away
Dreaming on my pillow in the morning
Never been awake
Never seen a day break
Leaning on my pillow in the morning light…
(Pilot-It’s Magic)

Get your AM radio groove on…we are looking all the way back for a bit of inspiration on this Monday morning.

I have an author friend, and today, her Facebook inspiration was, Magic Monday, it’s all in the attitude. So true, and of course, the word Magic sent me to this vintage tune, and I thought what more can you ask for on a sunny day?

This is such a feel good, groovy little song of fluff. It reminds me of my West End bedroom, me, young, clock radio blasting out all that was the AM goodness. I loved that bedroom when I was growing up. It had a set of windows, that served as my windows to the world, my windows that I would sit in, because I positioned my dresser and mirror in the corner, jump up to sit on them, and I would open both sides of the windows, let the spring and summer air in, and I would dream, plan, plot, and well, yes, execute. Because, true to form of your rebel market manager, when I was older, I knew these windows were easy to unlatch the screens, and would lead me to late night escapes with neighborhood pals.

I mean, who DIDN’T do the late night escape only to return a few hours, later? The freedom, the excitement, the fun. We were not a band of troublemakers. We were not out causing problems or damaging properties. We were just pals exploring the night hours.

Anyway, looking back, it was all magical to us, then, like anything was possible. That my window, this song, would lead to all of my dreams, and plans. That my whole life was out there, waiting, wondering what I would make of it…

All very fitting thoughts for girl who grew up, lived most of those dreams, plans, and schemes, only to bring her into what is now her birthday week! Yes, my birthday is Thursday, and like each year, I look back at the magic that I have made in my life.

Maybe it’s putting magic into your life, maybe it’s putting magic into your day, maybe it’s just putting the magic into an ordinary Monday…whatever it is, make it all magic!!

And, go ahead…make the magic happen in our market with your orders!! The more you order, the more magic you will bring into your daily diet, menu plan, and health…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Market News

I finally got to spend some quality time out in the garden this past weekend, before the deluge started today. Late last summer I moved to a rental house on the west side of town, and I was lucky enough to find one with raised beds already established in the back yard. They’re overgrown and there’s no easy way to get water out to them, but just having them there is a great start. Even if the beds weren’t here, I could have a little container garden on the patio, which is an easy way to grow a surprisingly large amount of veggies when you don’t have any land to grow in. But if you don’t have space of your own for a garden in the ground and growing in pots doesn’t sound like a “real” garden to you, you’ve got another option: community gardens.

There are a number of community gardens around town, though I suspect some have fallen into disuse. Like any project that runs on volunteers, the amount of gardening getting done will ebb and flow with the hands available. If you’d like to get involved in bringing and maintaining public gardens for Athens communities, I’m sure the Athens Land Trust and the Community Garden Network would love to hear from you. They have a website where you can find out more: http://www.athenslandtrust.org/community-agriculture/community-garden-network. They have descriptions and other information about some of their current active gardens, and I’m sure they’d love more hands.

Thank you so much for your support of Athens Locally Grown, all of our growers, local food, and our rights to eat it. You all are part of what makes Athens such a great area in which to live. We’ll see you on Thursday at Ben’s Bikes at the corner of Pope and Broad Streets from 4:30 to 8pm!
