Oh My Goodness!

I've got great news for you all! As some avid blog followers of mine may recall, I always complain about not being able to sleep in. But there was improvement today. Drumroll please... I was able to wake up at 8:58 a.m. -- the latest I have woken up on this trip. So yes! I was finally able to sleep in. A dream come true.

Today was a day for visiting Ithaca's Farmers Market. I was expecting more produce, but I was indeed happy to see a lot of small businesses selling hand-made crafts. And since I usually don't see small businesses a lot anymore, it was great to see these people showcase their talents. And to support this, I bought a necklace made out of Russian amazonite. 
I personally loved the color
There were so many beautiful flowers.

Inside Purity Ice Cream
Following the captivating Farmers Market, off we went to Purity Ice Cream. Honestly, I was a bit confused by all the options and flavors. This made the process of buying ice cream way more difficult than it should've been. After tons of pondering, I settled for the "Oh My Goodness" sundae. And need I say it? It was a chocolate cupcake with mint chocolate chip ice cream, fudge topped with whipped cream and cherry. If you're thinking it's a mouthful to say, it was definitely a mouthful to eat as well. The ice cream seriously deserved an "oh my goodness" both positively and negatively. Oh my goodness it was so tasty, but oh my goodness I couldn't handle all the richness. Anyways, the bottom line is that the ice cream sundae was great, but a little too rich for my taste.

As per tomorrow, a second rough draft of my essay is due so I better keep editing.
