Pie Fixes Everything

Oh, the Restraint!  I have still – after three hours – not eaten my Farmer’s Market prize yet… but after staring at it for all that time as I painted, I can tell you that my resolve is weakening.

The “RD” in the crust stands for Razzle Dazzle flavor, which is raspberries, blueberries, and Marionberries.  Our local pie maker’s booth features the “Pie Fixes Everything” logo and stacks of brown boxes filled with pies that rival even my Mother’s (it’s okay, she doesn’t do Internet!).  I wholeheartedly agree that a pie can fix everything, although I think that biscuits may actually provide a better fix because you can put butter on them, but that’s just me.

It’s been a glorious summer beginning today: a sunny walk to the market, breakfast with SueAnn, some on-site sketching, great people watching, fun painting, shared a turkey sandwich for lunch with my cat, and now PIE!
