What’s your weekend ritual? On Saturday I love to venture to La Canada’s Farmer’s Market. I discovered that it although it is advertised open at 9 AM, most vendors are ready to sell by 8 AM. In addition to all of the fresh produce there is the cheese truck and the French baker. Saturdays are chocolate croissant days at the Harb home, fresh from Farmer’s Market and the ideal start to the weekend. Time allowing, I get on the treadmill, shower and show a couple of homes. In the heat of the summer, I love to get my appointments done early in the day and still have a little time by the pool. For those of you looking for something more exciting than my weekend routine, here it is:
