My husband and two older boys went out visiting some folks we know this morning and then made a little visit to the market. The Markets at Shrewsbury have some great little shops. I actually sell some items at the Pretty Pickins stand so of course I’m a little partial to that particular spot.
My husband, on the other hand, really likes the Stoltzfus Bakery. They have really yummy pies, cookies, and just about anything else you can think of. My husband (okay, me too – but don’t tell anyone!) really likes the Strawberry Cheesecake! It’s nice because you can go there and buy a full, half or even a quarter cheesecake. That makes it a little more reasonable on the diet you know!
Today when “the boys” went to the bakery the gentleman who owns it gave them some extra little goodies to bring home. We thought at first that it was some slices of peach pie. After trying it though, I’m thinking maybe it’s made with apricots. I’ve never heard of apricot pie though. The “peaches” were just too dark for peaches and the taste and texture just wasn’t right for peach. The only thing I could come up with apricot. Now don’t get me wrong, just because I don’t know what it was, that certainly doesn’t mean we didn’t enjoy it. It was very yummy! Those people know how to make their pies!
Trying that pie makes me think about how often we make assumptions based on the first glance at something. First glance said that pie was peach so that’s what my taste buds expected. First glance at an article of clothing is often a deciding factor on whether we’re going to give it a chance for trying it on or just going to keep going. Sometimes the first glance at a website is the determining factor for whether we’ll surf through the various pages the site has to offer. We determine so much based on the first little glance we give it.
There is a website I know of that may not seem like much on the first glance but it has a lot of really neat stuff to check out. It’s The Home Automation Store. The site isn’t very fancy but the X10 products that they offer will make your home appear very fancy. With their various gadgets like wireless remotes to control your homes lights and X10 Switches that allow you dim lights that don’t normally dim, these gadgets are great for moving your home decor up a notch! This site might not be real fancy, but the products it provides for your home make you look fancy!
I’m going to have to head to the market soon myself. While I’m there, I’m going to try to find out what kind of pie that was. It wasn’t what it seemed and now I need to find out what it was for real! I guess it never hurts to delve into things just a little deeper and see what they’re really all about.
